How to recognize if a gemstone is authentic or fake?

Gemstones Facts

Robin Arora's insight:

At the earliest glimpse you may not be able to make a distinction between a real and fake gem. So you will need to look more closely for those signs.
1. Luster and shine: Synthetic gems are more shiny and lustrous than real gemstones. Natural gemstones are naturally beautiful, without any treatments or enhancements reasons being real stones have been worn through weather and other forms of nature. A fake gemstone will have uneven luster and color.
2. Inclusions: Lab-created gems do not have inclusions as they are hidden or filled. Natural gemstones definitely will have some inclusions or birthmarks as a sign of their originality. A glass or synthetic gemstone can have tiny air bubbles inside or scratches on it.
3. Weight: Synthetic gemstones often weigh more than real ones due to the chemicals added to it to look real.
4. Price: The gemstone should be convincingly priced. If it is too inexpensive or too pricey, you need to be extra careful.
Still have any suspicions about the stone being genuine, take it to a gemologist and have it checked. He will be proficient to notify if it is fake or authentic.

Also check the clarity and color as discussed above. Take a fine look and observe the gemstone closely before buying.

4c’s to verify the Real Gemstone..........

It is the very first and the most important information to determine whether the gemstone is worth its value.

Robin Arora's insight:

 

Color: Their color should be vibrant, even and saturated all through the complete stone. Unevenness in color shows that the gemstone is artificial and synthetic. Color can be described in terms of:

Hue is the foremost and secondary color visible in a stone.

Tone is the impression of the intensity of the color perceived by the eye.

    Saturation is the purity and intensity of the hue present.

The more the color varies from more to less range in terms in of vividness, lighter or darker, the more precious is the gemstone.

Cut: Color of the gemstone will only be enhanced by a good cut, while a badly cut colored gemstone can be turned out looking dull and lifeless. In gemstones, the deeper the cut, the deeper is the color.

Clarity: It should be checked first with the naked eye, then with 10X magnification to observe the inclusions or stains.

Gemstones are divided into 3 clarity types:

Type 1: Gemstones that are expected without inclusions (i.e Aquamarine).Type II: Form with reasonable inclusions (i.e Ruby and Sapphire).Type III : Always found with inclusions (i.e Emerald)

Carat: Carat is the traditional unit of measurement for gemstones, which is equal to approximately 0.2 grams.

1Carat-200 Milligrams

Size and weight are the two different aspects of gemstones. Two different gemstones may have the same size but different weights, reason being the specific gravity or density of the gemstone.

Check all these aspects before buying any gemstone especially for astrological benefits.

G+ is the best for business as you surf, make friends in circles and can use  google hangout for business conference etc. So in my Idea 

Google is the best platform for business either it is their adword platform or many others latest being Google maps and images
