Product Description

An historic synthetic (lab-created) Emerald created by the flux melt method.

This method of Emerald synthesis was devised in the USSR during the 1980's.
They were difficult to grow and production costs were high, which is why they were only created for a limited period of time.
Since then, most synthetic emerald has been created using the faster and more economical Hydrothermal growth method.

Not many of these historically significant gems become available these days, with this densely included specimen bearing all of the hallmarks of its type.
The characteristic inclusions of flux-melt Emerald is visible under magnification, secondary healed fracture "fingerprints" of  unmelted flux (also known as "twisted veils") and some tiny primary 2-phase inclusions.
Images 4 and 5 are magnified views of the inclusions in this gem.
