Some Important Lab Testing Parameters
Refraction is the bending of light as it passes in or out of a gem. The angle of refraction in the stone determines its RI. Gemstones with a high Refractive Index are more brilliant than those with a low Refractive Index.
Specific gravity is the ratio that indicates the weight of a given object compared to that of an equal volume of water at a specific temperature. So it is must that any gemstone should have ideal specific gravity to get results.
Now a days in large number there is a heat treated stones are available in the market, so avoid to buy any heat treated gemstones if you want to get natural and best effects from any gemstone.
Weight of any gemstone should be ideal, low weight may not give you actual results. Understand with the example, if someone is having fever and taking the half table for fever then hey may get partial or incomplete relief from the fever, but full dose of medicine will give complete relief from the fever, therefore always wear gemstone of appropriate weight.
