NOTE: * The Gemmological Certification Services (GCS) lab has verbally accredited the emerald originating in Zambia and verifies that the gemstone shows indications of moderate clarity enhancement, in addition to the rubies originating in Thailand with no indication of heating.
"Rather than regarding inclusions in coloured stones as harmful, in small sizes and numbers that do not in any way detract from their beauty, they should be regarded as adding to desirability, for they provide identifying characteristics."
