Which Diamonds are Better Natural or Artificial?

Jewellery lovers many times think that simulated diamonds are similar than the natural ones. Well, they are extremely wrong. In order to be called as created stones, the gem should be physically, chemically and visually identical to the mined stones. When we talk about simulated, it is simply a replica of the diamond stone but it is actually not in any way the similar in terms of physical, chemical and visual characteristics.

Still, most dealers and distributors of simulated stones often state that it is synonymous with created ones. As long as you are purchasing its alternatives such as the new hybrid, Russian, nexus, etc. you are still attaining good quality jewellery and not fake ones. Fake stones are a different thing since they are with they are created with the intent of deceiving the consumers. In the case of simulated stones, they are created in order to provide an alternative choice for the consumers. Real diamonds are so costly for the ordinary person and with the availability of simulated versions they can now manage to pay for the purchase of high quality jewellery at half the cost or even less, if they are happy not to have the real thing of course.

Knowing Several Facts

The natural diamond is very strong. In actual fact, it is considered to be the hardest natural mineral available on earth so far. It has a score of 10 in Mohs scale of stone hardness. A diamond can be scratched with another diamond only; however, if two of these stones are scratched together, both of them will be damaged. This can also cut glass! Its rarity is measured by its colour. It is said that a crystal clear stone is the most common one while the shades of pink and violet are the rarest.

Their foundation is from beneath the earth. These stones are also mined similar to all other gemstones. These are developed in areas of carbon having high pressure as well as a temperature of about 900 - 1300 °C, lower than many gemstones. But with the subject of science, even laboratories can truly act like diamond mines! Scientists make use of materials regarded as simulants and afterward they process it to form a man made stone. It can be precisely how a gemstone would look but it truly is not a real one. Such materials work as alternatives to real ones. When processed, the outcome is a cheaper stone of similar quality.

A simulant stone can moreover be classified into either one of two categories: artificial or, natural. Natural simulants are gems themselves which can look similar to real ones. These gemstones, such as topaz, quartz and beryl, have above average solidity as well as low refraction indexes. Artificial simulants are the materials being created in the laboratories, the gem silicon carbide or moissanite, and cubic zirconia. Such materials were formed to sustain the stability of the progressing gemstone trade worldwide.

A stone developed in the laboratory is not regarded as a fake diamond. It is known as unnatural, however considered to be real and genuine. Natural ones are more pricy than the man made kind. A fine example is the new Star Hybrid simulated gem, which is more solid than moissanite but has similar qualities like the natural ones. The Star Hybrid is extraordinary, since it is developed of another material.

So, these were several things you now know about real and artificial diamonds. Goldenet is known and reliable for providing the real and authentic diamonds only.
