Ruby – Glass fill
Wholesale Glass Filled Ruby Supplier
Glass Filled Ruby or Composite Ruby is a mix of low-quality natural corundum (Ruby) with lead glass. It first came on the market in 2006. Initially, some fake suppliers sold it as natural ruby because the treatment was not commonly known, but this was limited to a few people. Soon when quantities came into the market then it was recognized. After this treatment, low-quality or commercial grade rubies are now coming into the market with lead glass treatment because it is higher priced than low-quality Natural Ruby.
The basic criteria in the market to judge the quality of a Glass Filled Ruby is clarity and color. Well, it should be a percentage of lead glass present in the piece that is why there is a difference in the price of different suppliers. The Gemologist Association decided that where there is a lead glass component above a certain percentage then it is considered imitation so buyers should always take care while buying glass filled ruby gems. There are some properties that differ from the imitation and naturally treated ruby – glassy appearance, fragile, unusually big size, and unexpected color.
