More information on these gemstones
Over four (4) methods exist to create sapphires, rubies, and other gems within a lab. However, many jewelers, collectors, and buyers prefer hydrothermal and pulled Czochralski gemstones.
Gems created through this process usually exhibit superior features and are tougher than many other precious stones. They also look more natural and may even be stronger than natural sapphires or rubies.
The improved qualities of Czochralski gems mean they are ideal as adornments, decorative pieces, and fittings on luxury items. You’ve likely seen a hydrothermal or pulled Czochralski gem on beautiful earrings or necklaces; that’s if you don’t own one already.
In this article, we’ll get to see essential details about hydrothermal and pulled Czochralski gems like their uses, maintenance tips, and much more.
History of Hydrothermal and Pulled Czochralski Gems
Pulled Czochralski gemstones became popular in the 1900s after its process gained wide acceptance. Hydrothermal gems were already in existence from the early 1890s where scientists discovered ways to apply heat and pressure to form durable crystals.
How are Hydrothermal and Pulled Czochralski Gems Made?
Hydrothermal gems form when elements crystallize under intense heat and pressure. These gems could be up to 18” long in some cases due to natural or synthetic molding. The gemstones crystallize under intense heat and pressure while elements penetrate to give one or more signature colors.
Pulled Czochralski gemstones rely on a basic ‘pulling method’. See a brief description of this method below:
- Radio waves melt aluminum oxide (Al2O3) in a special container,
- Dip a rod with a yellow sapphire crystal element at its tip into the aluminum oxide mixture,
- Slowly rotate and pull out the rod with its gemmed tip to form a ‘pulled’ column of sapphire
Many jewelers and buyers prefer Czochralski gemstones since they are durable, poorly conduct electricity, and many more useful features.
Uses of Hydrothermal and Pulled Czochralski Gems
Hydrothermal and Pulled Czochralski gems are ideal as:
- Detailing on luxury windows or glasswork
- Centerpieces or additional effects to luxury lighting, and
- Adornments on musical instruments, jewelry, art pieces, etc.
Hydrothermal and pulled Czochralski gems are preferred for these uses and many others since they have high decorative effect with many other useful features.

Maintenance Tips for Hydrothermal and Pulled Czochralski Gems
Czochralski gems need regular maintenance to preserve its shine, brilliance, and overall appeal. How you maintain a Czochralski crystal largely depends on its setting, mount material, use, and other factors.
You can clean Czochralski gemstones with these methods:
- Polishing with a dry cloth,
- Cleaning with loosely-concentrated soap solution (water to soap ratio at 4:1 or more),
- Storing in an airtight container free from humidity, and
- Soaking in a vinegar and baking soda solution for 10mins before cleaning and storage
Consult your jeweler for more information about the best steps to keep your hydrothermal and pulled Czochralski gems in top shape. Elements in these gems might react poorly to some maintenance tools and cause irreparable damage.
