As most gemstones are small in size, we use microscope and magnifying glasses to better observe the imperfections such as inclusions and fractures. A microscope from 10X up to 70X can be used for more detailed observation. This instrument can be used to observe the cleavage planes, growth lines, color bandings, surface graining, and the degree of external polishing. Sometimes they can also identify layers of assembled stones.

Black Opal Gemstone
Black opal is appeared to be translucent to opaque, with play-of-color against a black or dark background. It’s considered to be the rarest, whereas white, gray, and green are the most common. It has been reported that Northern African opal was used to make tools as early as 4000 BC. The first discovery of opal was from Ethiopia in 1994, precious opal appeared in the Menz Gishe District, North Shewa Province. Just like the white opal, the black opal is found at the contact zone between the volcanic rock series and the underlying clay-rich layer. They often in demand because the color contrast is much greater against the dark background.
Watermelon Tourmaline Gemstone
Tourmaline can have coloured zones across the length of the crystal, or they can have a core of one colour and an outer edge of another colour. A single tourmaline can contain up to 15 different colours or shades being nicknamed as the “Rainbow Gem”, gem of October babies. The most popular is bicolor tourmaline is the "watermelon tourmaline." Pink and green colors are found in the same stone, and these colour zones provide a visual record of its formation process. It happens when the trace elements change in concentration or composition during a crystal’s growth.
Garnet is the birthstone for January. The name Garnet comes from the Latin Granatum for pomegranate because the color of this crystal resembles the seeds of the pomegranate fruit. The colors variates from greens, oranges, pinkish oranges, deeply saturated purplish reds, and even some blues. However, the most widely-known color is dark red.
Blue Zircon Gemstone
Zircon vs Zirconia. Zircon is made of zirconium silicate, whereas cubic zirconia is made of zirconium oxide. Chemically, optically and structurally, zircon and cubic zirconia don’t share any similarities. Zircon is a natural gemstone and Zirconia is man-made stone.
Zircon found in Cambodia, Burma and Sri Lanka as well as in Brazil, Australia and East Africa. Blue is the most popular zircon color, followed by honey, red and white. It is regarded as the December birthstone.
Zircon is the only naturally occurring gemstone that is so similar in appearance to diamonds. It can also rival diamonds with its brilliance as it plays excellently with light, making it a brilliant and fiery stone. And because zircons are natural, they can often contain inclusions or other flaws just like diamond.
