A good-quality, yellow sapphire should be clear to the eye and of a clean, lemony-yellow to golden-yellow color. It is not advisable to purchase a heat-treated stone, as the crystalline energy pattern made naturally is altered, thereby affecting the gems natural energies. One can usually tell a heat-treated yellow sapphire, because it is a darker orange-gold or brownish yellow color. Heat treating makes the gem useless for energetic and healing purposes.
There are times untreated yellow sapphires are found in a a darker, more intense or extremely deep color, which can look treated. An expert gemologist can tell the difference. Also, a certificate can be requested, for a slight additional cost, to insure the gem is not treated.
