A mineral is a natural chemical compound, usually of crystalline form and not produced by life processes. The science of Mystic Gemstone is mineralogy.
Most gemstones are minerals
Amethyst Quartz has different physical properties. Their description deals with their chemical structure and composition.
It is important to distinguish between synthetic gemstones and counterfeit or simulated gems. Synthetic gems are physically, optically and chemically identical to the natural stone, but made in a factory. In trade, common merchants often use the name "laboratory created". This makes the synthetic stone more marketable than "factory created".
Example of Synthetic gemstones: Spinel Stone, synthetic diamond, synthetic quartz, etc
Examples of artificial stones include cubic zirconium, which consists of zirconium oxide and simulated moissanite, which are both gemstone simulators. Imitations copy the appearance and colour of the real stone but do not possess their chemical or physical properties. Moissanite Stone actually has a higher refractive index than diamond and when presented alongside an equal size and cut diamond, it will have more "fire" than the diamond. E.g. Lab Created Opal.
Rocks: Stone is a natural substance, a solid composition of one or more minerals or minerals. For example, Lapis lazuli is a deep blue metamorphic rock. Its classification is semi-precious stones. The major mineral component of lapis lazuli is lazurite (25% to 40%), a feldspathoid silicate mineral.
Organic gemstones: Amber, Ammolite, Bone, Copal, Coral, Ivory, Jet, Nacre, Operculum, Pearl, Petoskey Stone
Mineraloids: Mineraloids possess chemical compositions that are beyond the generally accepted range for specific minerals. Jet is derived from decayed wood under extreme pressure. Opal is another mineraloid due to its non-crystalline nature.
What are laboratory diamonds?
Lab-created diamonds (also called lab-grown diamonds, synthetic diamonds, artificial diamonds, cultured diamonds or cultured diamonds) are man-made diamonds that reflect a real, natural diamond. Because they actually consist of carbon atom structures, the diamonds created in the lab will have the same chemical and optical properties as a natural diamond crystal produced by the geological processes of Mother Nature.
While we think that diamonds are beautiful and a great choice if you are looking to make high-end jewelry, we do not buy in the marketing that De Beers has thrown in the throat for a century to convince people that you have to buy a diamond if you get engaged. The founder of this site has even written an article for Huffington Post in that sense.
The main optical properties of gemstones include:
So if you are going to buy stone takes care that you will buy the original gemstone because in market there is also fake gemstone. So it is must that you are able to indentify.
