Okay, I just googled it and discovered, "Pink-orange sapphires are also called padparadscha. Pure chromium is the distinct impurity of rubies."
Interesting! I am wondering who came up with the spelling of this word because it is also INTERESTING!
I like how this bead mix is coming together. The orangy-pinks mixed with yesterday's bubbly pink and the puffy gold pillow beads. Nice!
There are a couple left for tomorrow, so please stay tuned! This bead mix is also going to be a giveaway! :)
