I just have a query, regarding gemstones. I recently came across gemstones that labelled as an Aquamarine and a Topaz (orange coloured). The Aquamarine being 8 carats and the topaz as 10 carats. Both of them Oval shape.. I just noticed that both stones I can see have white veins. Are these an indication of treatment? The veins do not resemble nor do they look like the glass is shattered but like a small branch of a tree inside the oval stone. I'm just curious to know.

It's really hard to tell what that might be without seeing a picture. A bit hard to visualize.

I moved this to a more appropriate category.

Why don't you snap a pic and post it. You haven't supplied enough info even to blindly speculate.
