Gemacation: Trapiche Emerald
.
It’s the perfect day for a hardcore GemGeekOut!!!
.
If you've seen one in real life you won't be able to forget it. By ’one’ I mean a total GemGeekOut!... What did you think I was talking about, this gemcrazyness of a gemstone above?!?!
.
Gems and I go hand in hand. We are one and the same.
.
Trapiche Emerald is an amazing geological wonder. They are so rare that only a handful of miners and suppliers have had the ability to say they have one or have had one. Many times these stones are bought by collectors or museums because of their rarity and value.
.
Trapiche Emeralds were first documented as a discovery in Colombia around 1879.
.
What makes these gems so unique is the black multi-ray spoke pattern radiating from the center of the rough outwards like a wheel. This pattern is only visible if the stone is sliced and cut into a cabochon. The black ray pattern that is seen is the cause of black carbon impurities being present during formation. Since Emeralds have a hexagonal crystal structure the hypothesis for why a 6 spot pattern shows is that these impurities fill in at the crystal junction.
.
As of today, there are no known lab-grown, simulated or synthetic Trapiche Emeralds. Also, note most Emeralds are treated to enhance clarity and durability. Some of the processes they use include oiling, polymer filling, and glass injection. What one must understand is if a natural stone is treated it's still considered a natural stone. But treatment must be disclosed.
