The higher the saturation and depth of shade the more powerful the jewel, but NOTE, if the saturation becomes an excessive amount of it will influence the understanding and thus begin to cut back both strength and value. The jewel must be a nice crystal or “glass-like” and you need to quickly see engrossed, if not quickly with the bare attention certainly below magnification.
The situation that today ensues today is that newer functions of temperature therapy have been found and perfected that make a much better looking ultimate product. Today’s temperature solutions are nearly 100% diffusion temperature solutions for not merely ruby, but all sapphires as well. This is accomplished by layer the jewel gem with a dissolved crystalline material that’ll “calm” the specified color deep in to the gemstone. This makes a inferior instead washed out shade become serious and vibrant when finished. As metal oxide is what is in ruby that creates the red colorization, the very first diffusion therapies painted the treasure with iron oxide and then below significant conditions it “burnt” the deeper red color into the ruby.
Today recently conditions warmer than ever applied before are used to really dissolve the species of gem “chrysoberyl” (which generates the sought following types of “chrysoberyl cats-eye” and “alexandrite”) and that melted chrysoberyl is employed to fur the archero free energy or sapphire to increase its color. Such gems are useless for jyotish purposes and their energy will be “dead “.Unfortunately for us, since the business is acknowledging this newer therapy (for they are available of selling gems due to their elegance and maybe not astrological reasons) making a prettier and more affordable solution makes them less expensive because of their customers. This is specially therefore in the depressed economic environment of today.
Worse will be the glass-filled types that use dissolved glass to actually fill serious fractures within ruby. These therapies are getting more and more prevalent to ensure that truly natural sapphires without any temperature treatment whatsoever as well as only the standard heat that was used previously for ruby are actually rapidly getting scarcer and scarcer to find. There are several reliable treasure sellers that option in natural, unheated sapphire and will give accreditation with each purchase of such, but beware of such a thing inexpensive in price.
Fine gems can not be “cheap” in any case, but the motto “if it appears too great to be correct it always is” will be a fact when speaking about important gems. Unless you have the best of associates in the gem business and can find some one with the strange natural ruby or perhaps a very few left from old inventory, they are nearly impossible to locate anymore.
