Steel scratch-proof diamond? That is very interesting because there is actually no such thing as a scratch-proof diamond. It can only be “scratched” by a rough, flat diamond. Diamonds are amongst the hardest substances on the planet. As a result, it would not be able to be scratched by even the strongest, flat surface of sandpaper applied at random.
There is a diamond called cubic zirconia which looks like a good substitute to a diamond when it comes to hardness because they are both somewhat rough. However, cubic zirconium is not as hard as diamond and hence cannot be used as a substitute for steel scratch diamond. The most common synthetic diamond is cubic zirconium. The only problem with this is that this is vulnerable to scratching, which can even render them useless.
To get around the problem of scratches, you need to use a diamond with a higher cut grade. However, you cannot get a steel scratch diamond with a high cut grade. You will either need to pay exorbitant prices to get a diamond with a better cut grade or go to a diamond factory and get the diamond custom made, but you can never be sure of its quality. If you want a real diamond, then you need to stick to the genuine, hard stone.
How much is a real garnet?
While talking about the price of a real garnet I always ask first, How much is a real garnet worth? It is easy for people to look at some examples in museums and be reminded that they are old and not in great shape, so that would give an idea of the cost of the stone. But there are many other ways of calculating the value. A real garnet can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars to well over a million dollars depending on the condition it and the amount of damage done to it.
The cost of a stone is determined by the difficulty of maintaining it. It is extremely difficult to maintain a stone that is only recently found while a more mature stone will need quite a bit of time to stabilize. The first thing you need to know about any stone is the quality of the formation it came out of. In the case of real garnets, the formation was millions of years ago making it almost indestructible. Now if you get a stone that has been formed recently, you will have to take into consideration that the stone will be extremely delicate.
As far as the price goes, it will depend mostly on the quality of the stone. If it is a good grade then the cost will go up a lot. If you were to compare a real garnet that is newly formed with one that is much older then you would notice a huge price difference. I know a friend that paid over five thousand dollars for a single bowl. That does not include the cost of any other garnets, he or she may have given to their family.
What bad effects does amethyst stone have?
Amethyst is a lovely, smooth, purple quartz that has been used for centuries as a divining tool, and the properties of its gemstone make it a particularly good medium for meditation and spiritual growth. Amethyst’s reputation as a powerful stone for calming the mind and awakening wisdom and intuition has made it a prized gem both in the East and in the West, and an amethyst necklace or bracelet is an ideal way to incorporate this gorgeous gemstone into your wardrobe. As well as its reputation as a stone that promotes spiritual growth and intuitive insight, amethyst is also famous for its beauty, and this means that it can be used to enhance almost any wardrobe, from casual pieces that you might wear on a weekend in the spring to elegant eveningwear. Although it cannot compete with diamonds for sheer beauty, amethyst can stand up to the rigors of daily wear and still look stunning.
Amethyst is a quartz that has a pattern that closely follows the crystals of the crown chakra – these beautiful crystals are named after the Greek goddess of healing, Aphrodite. The quartz, which comes in a variety of colours, including purple, was traditionally worn by priests and poets in ancient Greece, and its name in fact came from the Greek term ‘amethysts meaning ‘not drunk’. Considered a luxury stone for its purity and ability to cleanse the body, it was also used by the ancient Egyptians as their favoured healer, and the Greeks considered it a sacred colour.
The purple color of amethyst comes from a unique property of the crystal called petite, which is a unique type of quartz that only occurs naturally in Southeast Asia, particularly in Myanmar and Tibet. The quartz is composed of two different types of oxygen atoms, with each pair linked together by a strong force that can be thought of as similar to the force that links two electrons together in an atom, or as a similar match for an electron in an orbital ring. As a result, when the two come into contact, their alignment causes a reaction that produces beautiful purple color. The purple color is due to a molecule of sulfur that forms a strong bond between the two, this sulfur is similar to that found in diamonds, but being much weaker in strength.
