What Are Gemstone Treatments?
Treatments are done to a gemstone to enhance its color or quality. Heat treatment
is by far the most popular form of gemstone enhancement, as it will usually
enhance color and clarity of a gem. You can find the treatment displayed
right in the description of the gemstone.
Are Your Photographs Believable?
GrandGemstones does not touch up its photographs. Gemstones are taken with Nikon digital
cameras and fluorescent day light tubes to bring you the most accurate pictures
possible. Most gemstones are taken at 10x magnification to simulate the details
that you would normally see with a regular loop. Remember the details that
you see in the photographs are 10x more that you would see with the naked
eye. Minor scratches and inclusions are invisible to the naked eye. Buy with
confidence at GrandGemstones as you know what you see is what you?ll get.
Are Your Gemstones Natural?
All gemstones sold at GrandGemstones are natural unless otherwise stated. ?Natural? is
defined as naturally occurring. That is, it has been mined from the Earth and
this definition includes gemstones that have gone through treatments.
