Synthetic Colombian Emerald / Columbian Emerald – Lab Created Colombian Emerald / Columbian Emerald – Hydrothermal Colombian Emerald / Columbian Emerald 

When Lab Created Emerald was first made by man, the color was a bit medium to dark in shade. The medium to dark color lab created emerald has been one of the best selling lab created gemstones but still it did not satisfy the demands of the public. The demand was more for a lighter color just like Natural Colombian Emerald because the Natural Colombian Emerald is one of the most expensive Natural gemstones. A nice piece of Natural Columbian Emerald can easily cost you about $20,000 where as the same piece in Lab Created Columbian Emerald is going to cost you only about $100. So why buy Natural Colombian Emeralds when the Lab Created Colombian Emerald looks the same to naked eye and is available at a fraction of a cost.

Laboratory-grown emerald Colombian Emerald for ring and jewelry is one of the most exquisite gemstones to be created in the lab as it requires sophisticated laboratory equipment. Scientists were able to synthesize emerald back in the late 1930s, where a flux-grown method is utilized, however, after 1960s, hydrothermal laboratory process was adopted, which is the similar process occurring in naturally found emerald. This leads to a better perfection and inclusions in comparison to hydrothermal processed or naturally grown emeralds.

The Lab Created Columbian Emeralds that we supply here are made by the hydrothermal process that is why some people also call it Hydrothermal Columbian Emerald.  This process uses a water solution at high temperatures and it takes many months to create a top grade synthetic emerald rough. We then use specialist engineers to cut these stones from the roughs to get the best grade lab created Columbian emeralds. The synthetic Columbian emeralds you find here will have the same chemical composition as the real emeralds.

Here at gemsngems – we can cut the lab created Colombian emeralds in all shapes and sizes. It is very popular with jewelers as it is used both in silver and gold jewelry. I have all the prices for the synthetic Colombian emeralds on this page. If you do not find anything that you are looking for then send me an e-mail at info@gemsngems.com
