Clarity grading of colored gemstones: A Reality Check

Clarity grading of colored gemstones: A Reality Check

Gemstones are one of the most beautiful gifts of nature to mankind. Man has always felt an urge to know the unknown. There is a unique passion in trying to figure out what lies beneath to what is on the surface. God which endowed mankind with this powerful weapon of curiosity also created numerous wonders hidden in the lap of Mother Nature to be unearthed and unfolded. Gemstones were one such gift that gave many reasons to smile by bestowing lasting happiness by ushering many positive changes in life.It is the mystical powers of gemstones to interact with planets and natural beauty which creates a pull.

It is the rising popularity of these wondrous stones that the market for many counterfeit and cheap copies of the gemstones is also thriving. There have been many cases where people ended up buying poor quality gemstones at very high prices blinded by faith and a lack of knowledge. Wandering in ignorance, they could not channelize their curiosity in the right manner.

This underlines the need to know your gemstones well before buying it. Clarity of gemstones is one such primary aspect that takes center stage while addressing the quality. Clarity is highly important in gemstones especially the colored ones. It has actually been given a lot of weight as color is the first thing one notices about any gemstone.

Although a stringent scale has been formed to grade diamonds, the standard for gemstones quality is still blurred. This has bred many misconceptions as people often extend the four Cs of diamonds to colored gems as well. Clarity is significant but there is a lot of difference between the two and one can easily miss the other important cues which are essential for proper grading of the gemstones. Even the terms like VS and VVS are also being used to grade the gemstones. Professional gemologists and gemstone associations have coined the terms like “loupe clean”, “eye clean”, “very slightly included”, etc. to grade gemstones based on the fact that the inclusions in the stone can be seen with the naked eye or under a 10x magnification under the loupe. In terms of gemstone quality, the color is definitely supreme and the inclusions are often not included unless they hinder the beauty of the gemstone. It is this focus on the color that there is an apparent absence of the international grading standard for gemstones. There is, however, the presence of a grading system, which is used but cannot be considered complete in all respects for determining the quality of the gemstone as there are many other aspects that need to be considered like the color and cut in particular. The recognized types are mentioned below:

Type 1: These are completely free of inclusions and are of high quality. Any inclusions can only be seen under 10x magnification. Also called as loupe clean.

Type 2: These have inclusions but the ones of high quality are almost clean to the naked eye. Many precious gemstones like ruby, sapphire fall under Type 2 category.

Type 3: These have visible inclusions. In spite of these types, there is still ambiguity in terms of gemstone clarity grading and there are some amount of inclusions which are present. The above guide is a good point to start but gemology is a complete science and has many aspects. Seasoned gemologists can only tell the difference which even the merchants who have been dealing with these for years cannot make out. Gemkart has always brought you the best quality gemstones.

  • i read some testimony about Priest Salami on how he has helped people in bringing back there ex within 48hours i was just thinking if that was real, And decided to call a lady who made a testimony and also dropped her number, So i called her and ask her about Priest Salami she said Priest Salami is a trustworthy man and he is ready to bring back my lover for me, i was just so happy and a little bit relief that my lover will be back to me soon, Then i decided in contacting Priest Salami which i did, And before i could share him my problem he has already told me what i came for, And he said everything will be okay within 24hours that my lover will be back to my arms, So he said he would be casting the spell and that within 24hours my lover would call me, So i hoped so truly before the 24hours i got a call from a man who has left me for the past 1years saying he is sorry and he wants me back, i was happy and i said i also want him back, Then i traveled to Canada to meet him up, And he apologized for what he has done to me now he proposed to marry me and we are both preparing for our wedding soon, All thanks to the great and World best spell caster, Priest Salami His private mail : purenaturalhealer@gmail.com

  • My name is Tom Peacock from USA, I want to say thank you to Dr Emu for the good thing he has done for me, Though am not sure if this is the best forum to show my joy and happiness for what he has done for me but i can’t hide my happiness and my joy so i have to share it with people, my marriage got crashed about two years ago and i tried all i could within my power but to no avail. I saw a post and testimonial about the good things Dr Emu has been doing so I decided to give it a try. though he is always a busy man but when he responded back to my email, he gave me 48 hours for my marriage to be restored really just like he said my marriage was restored since then I am happy and i am living happily i am so grateful to Dr Emu you can always email him here: {emutemple@gmail.com} or WhatsApp: {+2347012841542}
