    Very insightful lesson. Explain why emeralds can’t be heat treated.

    Wow, thank you! I had gotten two cabs, I don’t usually set any cabs I get, but I also was able to obtain a specimen end piece from pieces the man was cutting. It is so beutiful, I would have never imagined it was so soft! Thank you for this lesson, it’s the only thing I’ve ever heard about covelite. I do have a question, not related to this stone, it’s about lattice sunstone. Why and what makes it’s shimmer and why that pattern, ironically was told, copper! Lol
