Properties of Stones Requirements of Good Building Stones

2 天前  8. Appearance: In case of the stones to be used for face works, where appearance is a primary requirement, its colour and ability to receive polish is an important factor. 9. Seasoning: Good stones should be free from the quarry sap. Laterite stones should not be used for 6 to 12 months after quarrying.

2 天前  Amethyst – Heating can remove unwanted brownish inclusions in some amethysts or lighten the color of overly dark stones. Aquamarine – Without treatment, much of the aquamarine is blue–green in coloration. Heating in a controlled environment can remove the greenish color component from the material to produce a more blue appearance.

A Guide to Gem Classification - International Gem Society

In nature, minerals commonly have impurities present in very tiny amounts, usually 3% or less of the crystal by weight. These impurities don’t change the primary chemistry. Therefore, the mineral name, or species, doesn’t change. They do, however, change some of the mineral ’s characteristics, so we use a sub-classification called a variety.
