Sapphire is most durable and tough gemstone, although you must know there is only natural gem harder than sapphire is diamond. Sapphire is harder but if it will be handled roughly it can get chipped or scratches. Therefore it is important to handle it carefully. However, the most beautiful and valuable sapphire color is blue, also known as Kashmir sapphire or cornflower blue sapphire. Even though another valuable man made sapphire hue is very precious and rare known as orange-pink Padparadscha. Color changing sapphires are super exotic and dazzling form which displays varieties of colors depends on the lighting. Besides, natural light delivers blue color of color changing sapphire while in artificial light the color shows on is violet. Pink and yellow sapphire has become increasingly popular as several designers use them in their jewelry. Lab-made sapphire Synthetic sapphire was first made in 1902. The verneull process is used to create man-made sapphire. It is fact only experts can identify natural sapphire and lad made sapphire. Yet according to experts, there are few features need to consider if you want to identify natural sapphire. But still, it will be hard to identify synthetic and natural sapphire by any common person. Sapphires are well known and highly prized gemstone. Dazzling beauty and super hardness of sapphire make it ideal for jewelry. The demand of this gemstone has been increased in last few decades, therefore, is thought to be synthesized. Rubies and sapphires are the first ever gemstones which are synthesized. Now it has been almost 100 years when first lab created sapphire was made. Nowadays some of the advanced technological methods are used to make synthesized sapphires and red garnet. The process requires high-quality expertise and proper insight. How are lab grown sapphires developed? Gemstones are made or develop with the right combination of interactive minerals with proper chemical and physical situation. This is the same formula required under the earth or in the laboratory, according to experts developing synthesized gems are time and cost saving than mining. The fact is somewhere right according to manufacturer’s perspective but original is after all original. To develop synthesized sapphire physical and chemical processes occur under controlled condition and these processes are controlled and accelerated by experts in the lab. With these processes, mineral composition and combination are taken place. Two major types of methods are used in developing artificial sapphire which is melt processes and solution processes. Melt process includes melting aluminum oxide within sapphire droplet while solution process is the method of growing sapphire crystals through solutions. Are lab-created sapphires really sapphires? According to atomic structure and crystal habit lab made sapphires are exactly the same as natural sapphires. These are made from the same material and both are identified as forms of corundum. These are also beautiful as natural blue sapphire but being a consumer you should know what you are paying for. However, it is not easy to identify natural gemstones for sale and synthesized sapphire. Therefore it is better to go and Order Loose Gemstones where you know these are synthesized.
