I know with the last one is. I just think it’s really pretty I’m gonna have to sit in a ring pretty soon
Take some more photos of various sides of the gems and that may help see what they may be.
if you buy. refractometer and a good scale (you can measure the specific gravity) and you should have a good idea of what those stones may be. Pictures don’t really help with identification. (I’m working on getting my gemology certificate, so I’m not a gemologist, just a jeweler.)
The first picture looks like it could possibly be Ruby the second picture looks like it could possibly rutile quartz and the third looks like a blue topaz I hope that helps a little have a rocking day:nerd_face:
Aloha. My first guesses for the first one is a lovely but roughly cut ruby or spinel, the second one looks like a roughly cut ocean tanzanite. A tanzanite that has not been heat treated, and it looks like a bit of matrix left for effect. The third one looks like a CVD treated petalite. Just guesses…
1st Ruby, 2nd Tanzanite and 3rd Topaz or Sapphire
There may be an inexpensive solution to your problem that was created by Dr. Hanneman. I’ve just started to read some of his work (he was a chemist and a gemologist) and he devised very inexpensive tests to identify gemstones.
The solution I am about to suggest is based on spectroscopy, or the wavelengths of light gemstones absorb. You can purchase a spectroscope like I did, but I still don’t know how to use it. Plus most spectroscopes don’t come with information on what the gemstones should look like through it.
He developed a bunch of filters based on this idea and you can purchase them. I have purchased a set to try out myself. But I’m still waiting for them to arrive.
here is the link:
It’s a very interesting, lightweight and surprisingly straightforward method of gem identification.
If you do purchase something like this, please let me know your thoughts as i am sure it will arrive before mine do.
Hi, yes the first one is a ruby, the second one is tanzanite, And the last one is a blue topaz
