Choosing The Make Of Gemstone
are made of natural materials that are cut, polished and shaped to create each gemstone. However, some gemstones are much more rare than others, so scientists have developed lab-created gemstones.
Are created in a laboratory from similar materials and conditions as genuine gemstones. They are chemically, physically, and optically identical to gems found in nature. These stones usually have fewer inclusions due to the controlled production process and tend to be more affordable than genuine gemstones.
Are created from less expensive look-alike substitutes for genuine gemstones. These stones are treated to match the color of genuine stones and cut to look the same but may not contain the same brilliance or hardness of the natural stone.
