Synthetic Gemstones

Technology has allowed the gem industry to explode with synthetic gemstones that are manufactured in laboratories and factories, yet are chemically and structurally identical to their natural counterparts. These stones, whether colored or colorless, offer the designer cut, clarity, and sparkle, but at a fraction of the price of the real thing. What’s more, some are heat-tolerant and can be fired in a kiln without damage, making them perfect for PMC designs.
