***This stone is clarity enhanced. *Clarity enhancement is industry standard with emerald and is still considered natural so long as the filler is clear and colorless. Traditional natural fillers like Cedar oil and Canadian Balsam resin are accepted industry wide and retain the highest value. We have a small lab and after countless tests and experiments are very proud of the results we can achieve with natural balsam resin. This is a stable enhancer that under normal handling will never need replacement, unlike cedar oil which is soluble in soap. Balsam tree resin hardens to a very tough substance (think amber, essentially what this turns into as it dries). It is also generally more accepted than polymers as it is totally natural, easy to remove/replace and provides less deceptive results. Stones enhanced naturally can retain 10-30% more value in the open market as opposed to synthetic fillers that are more common. Some synthetic fillers degrade after some years and can ruin the stones appearance. Removing and replacement of these fillers is a very hard process, one that few people care to undertake. Wherever you purchase your new emerald be sure that the filler is right for you.

A note of caution when emerald shopping beware the imitation emerald that is dyed. If the inclusions in the stone appear to be a bit brighter green, proceed with caution! Gem treatments are an ever changing and complex thing but this is one easy thing to look out for on your journey to your new emerald.
