Why consult a gemologist before buying a gemstone
Gemology (also Gemmology) is the scientific study of Gemstones. Gemology deals with their Formation, Origin, Sources, Properties & Identification. Gemology is a branch of mineralogy as most of the gemstones are minerals. Gemologist is a skilled professional who is qualified to identify, grade and evaluate the gemstones.
There are few hundred varieties of Gemstones available and each variety of Gemstone comes in various Qualities. Hence, it becomes crucial to accurately evaluate the gemstones as per their quality. In addition to this, it is important to find out whether the gemstone is Natural or Synthetic (Man-made), Treated or untreated.
Today, every stone can be created artificially. So, in the current scenario, imitation of every natural gemstone is available in the market & many of the natural gemstones are treated to enhance their outear appearance/beauty. These treated gemstones look better & of high quality compared to their natural counterparts. Such treated stones are priced much higher than their actual price and sold as 100% natural stones. Only a qualified Gemologist is trained enough to identify Gemstones and also detect such Treatments.
