Thanks for posting! It was really helpful. One question, what does the 'natural' mean?

Naree said...

Great question Amanda! There are natural gemstones and synthetic gemstones. Synthetic gemstones are lab created, and therefore, usually of a more intense, artificial color. They are also less expensive and depending on the stone, can scratch easier. Cubic zircons, a synthetic diamond, for example scratch and break a lot easier than authentic, natural diamonds. Natural stones, however, have flaws like feathers, "bubbles," or carbon in them.
