Sometimes it can be really hard to tell...
Q: Can you tell if this Emerald is Natural or Lab Created?
A: This Emerald is actually a Hydrothermal Emerald created in a lab!
It can be tricky picking a lab created gemstone from a natural mined gem. Emeralds are known for having cracks and carbon impurities within the gem, but that doesn't always mean its real! The material we cut this Emerald from had some internal flaws that, once cut, gave it a very natural look. A very natural, highly prized, expensive look!! Stunning, isn't she? 😘 We cut her in a classic Step Cut...because Emeralds. It's just what you do.
