Naive question here. What treatments other than standard heat are commonly applied to Vietnamese Ruby? Are they known to be treated with Lead Glass, Beryllium, or other additives?

Thanks

I am sure all suitable materials passing thai burners are heated with whatever method is "appropriated". LGF is not that hard to detect once you have seen it.
