Color: Japanese Red Corals arise from orangey-red color to bright deep red color shades. Vividly saturated Ox Blood red corals are the most sought-after ones in this clan. Although they are extremely rare. Bright red colored Japanese corals are also excessively demanded and fetch a high price in the market. On the other hand, pale and faded colored corals are less preferred and grab comparatively lesser prices in the market.
Cut: Being an organic gem, the Japanese Red Coral is quite soft and brittle. Even with a little pressure, they are prone to fracture or breakage. Hence they are not very likely to be experimented with cuts and shapes. They are usually accessible in cabochons oval, round, and capsule shapes. A round-shaped Japanese Red Coral brings more value in comparison to other shapes if its weight and other qualities remain the same.
Note:- Triangular-shaped Japanese Corals with a deep Ox Blood Red color are overly rare but are most preferred in astrology.
Clarity: The clarity of Corals refers to how bright and smooth their surface’s texture is. Due to its flawless and lustrous clarity, the price of Japanese Red Coral is reasonably high than other corals in red color. However, when unrooted from their source sea plant, Japanese red corals, aka Japan Pagadam stones, generally have a small spot in them which tends to decrease the price of this gem. On the contrary, white-colored waves like linings increase the gem value. The presence of small spots, pits, and blemishes makes the gem stand on the lower end.
Carat Weight: Red Corals of Japan are accessible in all desired sizes from 1 carat to 50 carats. Though in huge sizes, they are a rare happening. Henceforth, premium quality Japanese red corals gems higher than a certain carat weight are considered luxuriously and valued as highly expensive.
