An Interview at the Hong Kong Jewellery & gem Fair by Nick Hodgson of Astrogems.com regarding the controversy over lab grown diamonds. 96% of all natural diamonds show evidence of nitrogen clusters with the use of a spectrometer. Even though these diamonds can be a perfect colorless gem with no inclusions, at the atomic level they are not the pure carbon geometrical atomic matrix one would want in a perfect crystal structure. With certain lab grown crystals the difference is that they are just pure carbon which technically creates the perfect crystal. It is for this reason that i am not against the use of certain lab grown diamond crystals for astrological purposes.

In this interview I chat with Navratan Manihar of Manihar International Co Ltd at the Bangkok Gem & Jewelry Show about the prolific supply of heat treated natural Ruby which is very different from the original natural crystal material but used extensively in the conventional jewelry industry. Essentially 99.5% of all natural ruby has been super melted to enhance color and melt out inclusions. Buying unaltered gemstones is a very challenging science that requires ongoing study and close observance to the latest developments with the enhancement techniques in the industry.

Chrysoberyl Cat's Eyes are amongst the most precious gemstones. Yet so rare in good size and fine quality that as a gemstone investment, very few other gems can compare.
