What the colored gemstone industry needs is more honesty and a
whole lot less hype.
I agree with Garry. I think that the use of word like "Emerald" for
beryls that are not green is fraudulent. I wouldn't even use it for
some stones that I have that are green but colored by vanadium (no
absorbtion lines for chromium - but a wonderful color.)
