Panna like all Gemstones, is valued according to its Color, Cut, Clarity and Crystal. Panna is the grass-green type of Beryl.
Normally, in the grading of Gemstones, color is by far the most important criterion. However, in the grading of Panna, crystal is considered a close second. Both are
necessary conditions. A fine Panna Gemstone must possess not only a pure vibrant green hue, but also a high degree of transparency to be considered a top Gemstone.
The Swat Pannas show light red to red through the Chelsea color filter and completely absorb short-wave ultra-violet radiation.
This gives the rock its Gemlike green color. Varying amount of iron also alters the color of the rock. It has a hardness of 7.5-8 and a refractive index of 1.57-1.59. However, it
is not a Gemstone recommended for 'everyday' rough use since it falls in the category of soft stone.
A chemical analysis of an Panna Gemstone shows that chromium (which is the cause of the green of Panna) and iron are prominent constituents in Swat Pannas. The presence
of relatively high iron content means that the Pannas from Swat do not show so red a fluorescence as some other Pannas as iron acts as a fluorescence quencher.
The cut of the stone is also significant. Panna Gemstone can have round, pear, oval shapes and the famous Panna cut i.e., Octagonal Cut is most preferred. Inclusions are almost an accepted fact in Pannas. A skillful gem cutter is able to hide the inclusions while cutting a Gemstone and bring out its colour and glitter.
