Imitation Gemstones– Buyer Beware

Three LookALikes

A client brought these three stones to our shop looking to sell them. She had purchased the stones while traveling and was under the impression the two 30 ct. greenish blue ones were aquamarines and the peachy pink stone was morganite.

At Mardon, as gemologists, we always buy gems very carefully and only when we know exactly what we are buying.
