Treatment of Loose Stones

 

Zoisite Tanzanite Rough Stone

A relatively recent addition to the gemstone market, tanzanite’s limited origin and brilliant blue color has helped it climb the jewel market ladder with great speed. A stone so much rarer than even diamonds, tanzanite in the past decade has owned the position of the second most loved colored gem in the United States, preceded only by sapphire.

Marking Tanzanite
What few people are fully aware of, is the fact that when rough tanzanite is mined from the foothill of Mt. Kilimanjaro, more often than not it doesn’t look at all as it does in the market. Instead freshly mined rough tanzanite loose stones are a dull yellow-brown in color, and it takes skill to even differentiate it from the base rock at times.

If you’ve been scouting the market to buy tanzanite stones, you should have a decent idea of the treatments it goes through. Loose tanzanite gem stones are the hardest to sell as they have no embellishments masking its flaws, so often jewelers tend to overcompensate for these by excessively treating the rough stone – increasing its outer beauty but degrading the value and quality.

Once mined, rough tanzanite stones are heated to approximately 500 degrees (sometimes even more depending on the quality of the stone) in crucibles. This treatment causes changes in the crystal, and once the treatment is complete and the gem is taken out and cooled, its changed properties are retained permanently. Depending on the degree of heat it bears, its color intensifies – changing it from the dull brown to a permanent blue (ranging between pale sky blue, rich cobalt and violet).

Bruting Tanzanite
This treatment can also be done once the rough stone is faceted – that is once it has been cut to the desired shape and its outer planes have been angled ideally to maximize refraction (hence its sparkle).

Treatments impact the color to a great degree, but not all tanzanite gems are blue. Heat treatment doesn’t change the color of the rough stone, it only brings out and intensifies the already existing shade. Hues range from blues to violets to red-purple, some even with tints of grey, brown and green. Even so, the most valuable still remains the deep blue ones.

Tanzanite is originally a form of zoisite – chemical composition and all. Its name is specific to this crystalline form, which means that its properties are the same as that of zoisite – originally a rock that is brown, pink or grey in color.

Of course, don’t be fooled, tanzanite loose stones do come out of the ground in their original blue shade as well; having been naturally heated inside the earth by the temperatures of Mt. Kilimanjaro – a volcanic mass in itself. It just so happens that even though naturally blue tanzanite is most valuable, treated tanzanite has been accepted by the market as the next best option.

Lastly, while heat treatment is accepted, there are other measures taken by jewelers and distributers to enhance the color and shine of the tanzanite. When heated, tanzanite crystals tend to ‘crackle’, which is every miner’s nightmare as it loses its value. Hence they use other techniques – such as coating the gem with cobalt and the like. If you’re shopping for loose stones, keep a check on quality and make sure you get a certificate of authenticity.

How to Find the Gemstone You Prefer To Wear

Finding your own personal preferred gemstone isn’t as easy as it may seem, but neither is it a complex decision. Though the beauty of jewelry without gems is age old, the addition of the appropriate gem can add to the jewelry its own identity in terms of when it’s used and how much it stands out in a crowd.

In today’s day and age, the more unique and individual your accessories are, the more they are appreciated, so try and find your own style!

It is amazing how greatly the answers to these questions can help you chose a precious stone to adorn.

Emerald Cut Stone
For example, if you are shopping for a special occasion then invariable people tend to go with diamonds, emeralds, rubies and other gems that are associated with timelessness with a pinch of royalty. These remain an ideal choice, but you can always mix and match the brilliant greens and the crimsons making yourself a jewel set that is one of a kind. You can also look at less common gems like lapis lazuli and tanzanite for blues, amethyst for its subtly lilac and ambers fresh ochre to complement the others as well as your outfit.

Tanzanite Loose Stone
If you are looking for something for casual wear, the most highly recommended choice would be stones that are easy to maintain, not too expensive so that you don’t need to constantly worry, and colors that go with most of your wardrobe. For example if you’re the kind who wears greys, blacks and blues as work formals, go with something that adds a little colour! On the other hand if you tend to dress in t shirts and denims you could wear something as traditional as a diamond or a sapphire just to class it up and be unconventional.

But her glimpse, her jewels, her accent, & the way she was looking at him were alluring Andrew to an endless extent. Very late Night dinner was more of silent observing & sharing of emotions through eyes, with very gloomy music on saxophone. In the morning all went off. Andrew, Bob, Richard & Michel were left in the house of Rhone. Andrew was not able to forget her glance & the curiosity in her eyes. He went with Richard to know more about her, coincidentally, she was also interested in joining the party again on next weekend.

Excitement charged up but certainly she refused to Richard & had no contact for a week or so. Andrew was also disappointed, he came to know about her engagement ceremony was canceled as the guy cheated him. Andrew couldn’t stop himself & went to her place with Richard.

She whispered “You are rarest & pure at heart as the gift you have got, how come you know it’s my favorite?” Andie replied “ I observed your classy choice on that weekend peeping through curls on your ears!” Richard, was not able to believe what his friend just did.
