Gemstone certificates state that gemstones are natural and not man made, they are not appraisals of value. We suggest that if you want a gemstone certificate you get one from an independent gemstone laboratory. We do guarantee all our gemstones to be natural.
What about treatments?
Morebelli is doing only unheated and natural gemstones. The only thing we like to do to our gems is polishing them.
If by any circumstance we want to heat a stone to brighten up the color it will be mentioned in the description, therefore unheated means the enhancement is none, no enhancement or any treatment.
Heated when done in a natural environment without chemical enhancements is accepted in the trade as a natural enhancement. It is not to be confused with gemstones that have been heat treated with light elements or other chemical enhancements that may alter the color of the stone. Most natural coloured gemstones are heat treated to intensify their color diminish imperfections or improve durability. Heating gemstones in an oven is a treatment that has been done to fine gemstones for hundreds of years.
Treatments are disclosed on our stone description page except in cases where the information is unavailable.
