Emerald ID artical


#1

The March 11 “Science News” ( Vol. 157, #11) on the last page has a
very interesting article about using Oxygen isotopes to ID emerald
to the specific mine that they came from. Anyone with interest in
gemology should read it, the potential for other stones is obvious &
might well become an important tool in answering questions about
"important" stones.
