Dear folks, Recently some body brings ruby specimens from Afghanistan for testing in Gems & Gemological Institute of Pakistan-Peshawar Laboratory. Some American Soldiers show there interest to buy these rubies specimens. but they demand of certificate before buying.

When I checked these rubies specimens carefully. Then I understand the whole story. I means that synthetic rubies are embedded with the help of some epoxy or also called Hakeemi Lotion in Pakistan.

I want to share some pictures of Synthetic ruby specimens lot.

With best regards

HUK

Thanks for the info! I might add I'm not at all surprised. The US and Nato troops have become a goldmine for conmen in plenty of fields...
