Every gemstone features a combination of trace minerals that form a unique set of inclusions. The appeal of a gemstone lies in its appearance in a natural way without the magnification. Gemstones are graded scientifically using a 10x monochromatic color corrected magnifier. Colored gemstones like aquamarine, blue topaz, and citrine are known to have a smaller amount of inclusions whereas gemstones, such as emerald and ruby have a higher rate of inclusions. It is important to know that inclusions in gemstones aren't always a negative quality and don't hamper the beauty and durability of a colored gemstone in any way.
Clarity plays a key role in the comparison of quality colored gemstones. Some of the precious gemstones are those that exhibit little or no inclusions.
