That's what I thought,but shouldn't it be "Be" instead of only "b"?

yeah..... in GRS the H(b) stands for: Enhanced by heat, minor residues are present (within fissures only)

why don't you contact AIGS? they are very fast responders
email: info@aigslaboratory.com

it seems like they have Classification just like GRS for the Heat Treatment of Corundums
Code:
http://www.aigsthailand.com/DownloadPaper/Eng_AIGS_Laboratory_New_Disclosure_Comments_for_Heat_Process[1].pdf

so its not Be Treated, your Ruby is treated with residues from the heating process present in healed fissures

actually its the quantification of residues in healed fissures, residues can be recrystallized ruby (synthetic ruby), or residues from borax (glass, trapped gas....)

they categorized minor/moderate/significant with alphabetic, GIA use Alphanumerics...
