Stones of many types can be laboratory created.  Our equipment is designed to help to detect these.  Gemstar never sells laboratory imitation stones, only natural stones that have beauty and are suitable for elegant jewelry applications where the fabricator wants genuine, valuable, natural materials that compliment their hard work and effort.
Nothing is more disappointing than to get something that is not accurately represented. All photos are of the actual stones and are never computer enhanced. Any details that we become aware of that effect the quality, durability or value of the Stones are clearly stated.
