Item Description

Synthetic stones have their place in the gem world, especially for those who are looking to purchase a high quality or highly colorful item without breaking the bank. I've heard many gem dealers say that there is nothing wrong with purchasing a synthetic stone, provided that both the buyer and seller are aware that the gem has been grown, and didn't come from a natural source. I'm sure many of you have seen the surge of synthetic (lab-grown) Diamonds on the market recently, which may eventually replace natural Diamonds in modern jewelry. This stone is a beautiful synthetic Quartz with an intense dark green hue. The color is caused by vanadium oxide and chromium oxide, to create the color in this gem. I can't say for certain if this gem was hydrothermally grown, or by means of the flux method. The stone has an "Emerald" cut and is completely clean in terms of clarity. It's a good sized stone for a pendant, or would make a cool addition to any gem suite as a unique novelty.
