MAN-MADE GEMS

The origin of a created gem does not detract from its visual ibeauty and in some cases its genesis can be just as fascinating as that of a mined gem.

Our categories:

True synthetics:  Gemstones identical in both physical properties and chemical composition to their natural counterparts, such as synthetic Corundum and synthetic Quartz.

Lab created synthetics:  Those which are entirely synthetic and are unknown in nature, Cubic Zirconia or Strontium Titanate for example.

Composite stones:  Includes Doublets, Triplets and other constructed gems.

Imitation gems:  Gems which mimic other natural gems in appearance only.

Other man-made gems: Other material such as Victoria Stone and Tengizite which are the by-product of either industrial processes or accidents.
