Precious and semi-precious gems
Most natural precious and semiprecious gemstones are treated or enhanced to intensify
color, diminish imperfections, and improve durability. Explained below are the most
common and accepted treatments for different types of colored gemstones.
Oiling is an ancient process that is used to enhance the clarity of emeralds. Oil
is applied to the emerald and seeps into naturally caused fissures that reach the
stone's surface. Aside from improving clarity, this process may prevent brittleness.
Generally, oil treatment does not provide permanent results, and oil may need to
be reapplied every few years. Special care is required for cleaning, repairing,
or mounting oiled stones.
Heating is a widely accepted enhancement process that is used to treat rubies, sapphires,
amber, aquamarine, amethyst, citrine, tiger eye, tanzanite, topaz and tourmaline.
This treatment improves the transparency of the stone and enhances its color. Since
heat generally produces permanent results, heated stones do not require repeated
Diffusion is a method that is occasionally used on sapphires. During treatment,
a colorless sapphire is coated with a compound of titanium and oxide and is exposed
to heat. This enhances and/or changes the color of the stone and generally does
not require special follow-up treatments.
Irradiation is a type of heat treatment that is often used on blue topaz gemstones.
The brown stone is irradiated to produce the blue color. Irradiated stones do not
require special care.
