Tourmaline pomegranate is not crystal! Second resolution will return these gems




Multi-storey business likes to mix the tourmaline garnet and crystals to talk, even directly introduced to the buyer as a crystal, so many people who have no deep understanding of the gem have formed a deep-rooted mistake, because the tourmaline garnet Waiting for a lot of gemstones, it is a relatively high price of crystal.


Big wrong! Many medium and high-grade semi-gems are very wronged because they are called crystals, they can be more rare than diamonds! Today, I will give you three views today. How is it simple and rude until the same gem is it crystal? Which gems are misunderstood for many years, is actually not crystal?

Why is there no unscrupulous merchants fool you?

Because of them, no, special, industry!

Baojie teaches you a set of simple and rude “professional”, at least don’t go to unscrupulous merchants!

That is the source of misunderstanding lies in:

Many halflights and crystals are also a “silicate mineral” gem, but it is not a thing!

Basic artemine, why is it not crystal?

Question 1: What is “silicate mineral”?

Most gems are minerals. There are 100 common minerals on the earth, 40% of which are silicate minerals, and even have many silicate minerals on the moon and meteorites. The characteristics of this mineral are in the chemical composition. It must contain two elements of “silicon (Si)” and “oxygen (O)”.

Then there is another problem …


Question 2: What is the unscrupulous merchant flicked?

There is no business eye:

Silicate mineral gem = crystal

In fact:

Silicate mineral gem = crystal + many other kinds of gems

Question 3: How is it simple to distinguish this gem is crystal?


Baidu Baibo, recognize English letters

When you know the name of a gem, please Baidu Encyclopedia, what is its “chemical”. Remember that the chemical formula of crystal is “silica (SiO2)”, as long as the chemical form is not long, there are more letters, it is not crystal! ! ! It is only possible to be a kind of silicate mineral gem.

Crystal crystal + chemical formula & electrical stone crystal + chemical

Advanced article You need to know that these common gems are not crystals!

Just said, the chemical formula is not simple “silica (SiO2)”, that is not a crystal. Then, the teacher is also said, even if this gemstone is simply “silica (SiO2)”, it is not necessarily crystal!

Is it a little dizzy? Ok, look at this form:

Bajie is simple and rude to divide the “silicate” gem into three kinds. Crystals are only one of the varieties. Other unscrupulous merchants and all of you are not crystal! ! ! Which is not crystal? Remember these! ! !
