#1

This word is mentioned in part 4 on synthetic gemstones,but no explanation is given of its meaning.Also the words natural analogs occurs in part 5.Is there a glossary of technical terms somewhere on this website?Or can anyone enlighten me as to their meaning?I find it very frustrating trying to read articles where certain words aren’t explained!
