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 in 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 percentage of lead glass present in the piece that is why there is difference in price of different suppliers. The Gemologist Association decided that where there is lead glass component above a certain percentage then it is considered imitation so buyer should always take care while buying glass fill ruby gems. There are some properties that differ the imitation and naturally treated ruby – glassy appearance, fragile, unusual big size and unexpected color.
