This article is about the defective Padparadscha. You may be looking for another Sapphire.

I predict Lars will change in hue. What a mystery!

—"Lars' Head"

Padparadscha is an unaligned Gem living in an abandoned Kindergarten facility on the Gem Homeworld amongst other defective and abnormal Gems known as the Off Colors. While Sapphires are supposed have visions into the future, Padparadscha's visions are of events that have already occurred. She made her debut in "Off Colors".

Appearance

Padparadscha is a Gem with a peachy orange complexion and short, pale pink hair with bangs covering her eye. Her attire consists of a yellow, floor-length gown with a lighter collar and sleeves and white, elbow-length gloves. Her skirt has a reddish upper layer with an off-white trim and is tied back into a bow. Her gemstone is located on the back of her right hand. 

Personality

She has a cheerful and kind personality. Despite being a Sapphire, her predictions are always late, leading her to announce events that have already transpired as if they have yet to happen. She also seems to rely heavily on her predictions, causing her to have delayed reactions to things happening around her. Despite actually witnessing the events she 'predicts', her visions always seem to surprise her.

History

Padparadscha was considered defective and cast aside due to her "prediction" visions being of events that have already occurred, rendering her future vision useless. Eventually, she joined a group of other defective Gems, hiding with them in the tunnels of an abandoned Kindergarten to avoid being shattered and residing there for eons.

Abilities

Unique Abilities

  • Retrocognition: Rather than having visions of the future, Padparadscha's visions are of events in the recent past, making her predictions very late.

Trivia

  • Padparadscha's design strongly resembles Princess Daisy from the Super Mario series.
  • Both Padparadscha and Fluorite's actual color pallettes are yet to be revealed, since only their "dark" color schemes are shown.

Gemstone Information


  • The term "Padparadscha" (also known as "Padmaraga") is derived from the Sinhalese word for aquatic lotus blossom, which has an unusual salmon color.
    • Many agree that Padparadschas straddle the color boundary between pink and orange.
  • Padparadscha sapphires are mainly found in Sri Lanka, as well as Madagascar and Tanzania.
    • Some experts insist that true Padparadschas can come only from Sri Lanka, which, for centuries, was the only source of this coveted stone.
  • The Padparadscha Sapphire is one of the rarest Sapphires making its value pretty high in jewelry.
    • Its cost varies from the range of Emeralds and Rubys.

    • because its not that important
    • DetectiveAquamarine wrote:Gems are sexless. They are just feminine and use she/her pronouns. Also, counting fusions, Steg is male. Nailed ...
  • Would Rhodonite Fusing With Padparadscha create a Sardonyx?

    •   According to the 18th podcast, Garnet NAMED HERSELF, after the gem she resembled. She did?
    • Yes, she did.  If you don't believe me, I'd suggest you listen to the 18th podcast (around 14:26 in).
