What is a Gem? Well a Gem is a mineral or organically grown compound that is cultivated and prized for its natural beauty.
Gemstones are generally minerals that have been, or may be, fashioned to use for personal adornment. As a rule, they are beautiful, rare and durable. Most are minerals; natural, inorganic materials with a fixed chemical composition and regular internal structure. A few gems, like amber and pearl, come from plants or animals and are known as organics. Others called synthetics do not have a natural origin but are made in laboratories. Their physical properties are similar to those of natural gems, and they may be cut to imitate the real thing.If you are interested in a lab created gemstone, we highly recommend a Lannyte stone, which for nearly 30 years has produced the highest quality man-made gemstones on the market.
