Q:
Am I correct in saying this is a real gem that has been enhanced by human intervention, and that it has not been created by humans? - Asked by justlookingorbuying (41 Rating score between 10 and 49)

A:
Good afternoon, thanks for your question. Yes , you're right. Diffusion is a process where the colour of the stone is enhanced, either on the surface only or throughout the entire stone. One can say the colour and/or clarity are altered by humans.
In the case of synthetic corundum, the color, clarity and even the crystal structure itself are the product of human manipulation - or like you said in layman's terms, created by humans. Happy bidding!!!
