Rubies are the red members of the corundum family of minerals. Corundum of any other color--blue, pink, yellow, and many others--is called sapphire.
USING THE “VERNEUIL PROCESS” THE RESULTING STONE RESEMBLES NATURALLY GROWN SAPPHIRE IN EVERY WAY – INCLUDING HARDNESS, RESISTANCE TO SCRATCHING AND CHIPPING, LOSS OF COLOR, AND MOST OF ALL FINENESS OF COLOR
THE “VERNEUIL PROCESS” WAS ORIGINALLY DEVELOPED BY A FRENCH CHEMIST, AUGUSTE VERNEUIL IN 1902
THE STONE IS A TRUE RUBY (CORUNDUM) – FINEST QUALITY LAB-CREATED – AS HARD, SCRATCH RESISTANT, AND HEAT RESISTANT AS ONE FROM THE GROUND – ON MOHS HARDNESS SCALE – 9 (DIAMONDS ARE 10)
THIS STONE IS ALMOST SCRATCH-PROOF – VERY HARD
’S DEFINITION AND EXPLANATION ABOUT TERMS FOR STONES:
What is the Difference between Lab Created, Synthetic andSimulated Gemstones?
Lab created, Lab grown and synthetic are synonymous terms. To useeither of these terms, according to the FTC, the gemstone must be identical to the natural in every way: Chemical Composition,Hardness, and Optically.
Below is an excerpt from the FTC guidelines for gemstone sales for your reference.
"It is unfair or deceptive to use the word; laboratory-grown, laboratory-created, [manufacturer name]-created, or syntheticwith the name of any natural stone to describe any industry product unless such industry product has essentially the same optical, physical, and chemical properties as the stone named."
The key is that Lab Created and Synthetic are identical to the natural. Only difference being it is not from the earth.
No Lab Gemstone is RARE, as the rough can be made anytime.
· Ruby is the birthstone associated with July and of the zodiac sign Cancer.
· Ruby is associated with the sun in Vedic astrology.
