Frequently Asked Questions...

Hamlin Oxide...used for cleaning dark occlusions in diamond and gemstones?

Any gemologist out there who can confirm whether there is such a product being used for cleaning diamond and other gemstones? Where exactly is the product being manufatured and what exactly is this liquid. Have done a search on google but the answers are inconclusive.


Answer:

I have been a professional gemmologist for well over 40 years and believe me there is no easy way to remove inclusions from diamonds and other precious stones. Diamonds are sometimes laser drilled to burn out carbon spots but this leaves a telltale hole running through the stone. Heat treatment can help to remove inclusions in other stones (mainly the corundum gems) but even this is not wholly effective.
As to "Hamlin oxide" I have never heard of it - to have any oxide you must have a metal radical and oxygen and as there is no metal called Hamlin there is no hamlin oxide.

How to Choose Best Gemstone?

Before actually buying the gemstones, it is necessary to choose a reliable a gemstone dealer. You have to carefully research the dealer’s business background, ascertain how long the dealer has been in the business of gem stones and whether the dealer is a member of reputed associations. Make it a point to ask what gemstones the dealer sells. Needless to say, when choosing the best gemstone dealer, visit several shops take note of the prices, product quality, and professionalism of staff.

As you may be aware, Gems are stones that can be polished and set into jewelry or used to make various sorts of decorations and ornaments. Some gemstones are considered precious, such as diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires. Other gemstones such as topaz and jade are considered semi-precious stones.

Collecting gemstone is indeed an expensive hobby that all cannot afford but it can turn out to be a good investment. As a matter of fact, the values of certain types of gemstones appreciate rapidly and there is the possibility one getting rich quickly.

Before you visit a gem stores to pick up a few pieces of gemstones, you should be armed with the basic information on how to evaluate precious stones. The value of expensive diamonds is determined by the four Cs - color, clarity, cut and carat weight. Clear and transparent diamonds are indeed valuable but colored diamonds may also fetch high prices in the market. For instance, good quality blue diamonds are often more expensive than the regular colorless diamonds.

It is good to know that rarity and uniqueness of gemstones are critical in deciding the price of gemstones. Collectors and hobbyists are understandably more attracted to something that is not of the routine kind and they are more than ready to pay a much higher price if they consider any gemstone unique and valuable.

There is a general perception that deep colored gemstones are more expensive than the colorless ones. It is not always true that deep colored gemstones fetch higher prices in the market. Another key factor to bear in mind is the purity of the gemstones as it is generally acknowledged that pureness means superior quality. Any gemologist will tell you that pure ruby red are better than purplish red and grass green emeralds should be preferred over forest green ones.

When choosing a gemstone for your engagement ring, it’s important to know the gemstone used in an engagement ring needs to be a very hard gemstone that is durable and able to stand up to everyday wear.

Sapphires, rubies and diamonds are the most favored gemstones for use in engagement rings. People who cannot afford a sapphire, ruby or diamond, then aquamarine or tanzanite should be the next best for engagement rings. Aquamarine, it is suggested, can gather dust or dirt with constant wear, as the gemstone is very pale and translucent.

Sapphires are available in a variety of natural colors, including pale and dark blue and pink. There are also some sapphire colors that are rare like green, yellow and orange. Sapphires and rubies are indeed hard gemstones, second only to diamonds and are thus the most durable of all non-diamond gemstones Emerald is one the gemstones which provides psychical and emotional healing as it is the best ever physical healing gemstone. Coral is said to provide a soothing effect, physical energy and inward peace.
