Inclusions, like birthmarks trapped during formation in the earth are for gemstones what
fingerprints are to mankind.
They are their identity card , one can look at them in two ways : defects or marvels of nature.
Of course they should be not too obvious to take over the beauty of the gem.
They are proof of the origin and of the natural occurrance of a gem.
They are one of the means of identifying a gem as natural or synthetic (man made).
Down below are a few examples of the oddities that you may look at in gems .
All these pictures were shot under different magnifications and are natural.
Some of you in the future might look at their jewelry in a different manner, everybody has
always been believing that an inclusion is a defect... not in the gemspace world !!!
