It is rarely an easy feat to understand and buy jewellery made from gemstones, jade and crystals. With the wide variety of materials, your head may start to ache when terminology like "natural", "enhanced", "synthetic", etc starts entering into your ear... SO... what does natural means?
A simple search on the definition of "natural", and you will get the most direct and expected answer: "existing in or caused by nature; not made or caused by humankind".
And, yes! Natural refers to a gemstone, jade, or crystal (which we refer to as treasures) that is found growing/produced in the natural world without the influence of human activity. This encompasses treasures mined from the earth (eg jade, ruby, sapphire, amethyst, etc), found in sentiments of water bodies and/or water ways (eg amber), and discovered naturally in water (eg pearls, coral).
Therefore, isn't it simple and easy to find and purchase natural treasures just by heading to any jewellery or accessory store and say "I am looking for a treasure (eg jade, ruby, amethyst, etc) ? Well... the answer is, No. And we shall explain in the next post!
