A colleague just sent me this advert for the Las Vegas Show.
I've contacted the company to see whether I could acquire a sample of all the varieties of their stones.
Fingers crossed on this one.
I'll report back.

If any of you have any info to add, please do.

Barbra i heared about this kinds of "recrystalised gems" normally its just a SCAM, this is just another way to do marketing

Apparently, this company will have a booth in Vegas.
I'd love to have a look at these stones to figure out just what they are.

Back at the turn of the last century, new synthetic rubies and sapphires were sold as reconstituted.

i've seen these stones in many shows…the guy claims they use natural sapphire powder to recrystallize and get the stone.

they basically claim that the stones are kind of natural since they use natural powder…

fyi

These kind of stones are mentioned in recent GIA Gem ID course as nothing else as SCAM. i heard the same from other sources as well

Didn't they advertise the Brand AGEE?
So AGEE is standing for hydrothermal synthetic emerald.
For sapphire they spoke about Diffusion treated created Sapphire.

Thanks Ingrid. That sounds right.....I'm still waiting for a reply from the company. I'd love to have a look at their selection.
Holding breath.
