Unpleasant Gemstones
« on: December 04, 2019, 11:58:50 AM »
Recently during my web travels I came upon a gemstone website from Jaipur, India. It had the sentence:
Quote
We source unpleasant gemstones specifically from the mines and do additionally esteem option in cutting and cleaning, studding them into perfect jewellery
Puzzled initially, it came to me that it was an unfortunate English translation for rough gemstones!
Then I thought to myself, does my website, Rough Creations, sometimes translate to Unpleasant Creations?

Unpleasant creations, just doesn't have that "I must buy this now" ring about it does it?

Well, as it happens, there are an awful lot of "unpleasant" gemstones being offered on Indian websites. Stones that have been dipped in dye and a lot of fake stuff as well as treated stones, heated, irradiated, filled etc and being offered as "natural."

Expect the worst and hope for the best.
