Internal Treasures. Nature's Thumbprint JTV's Internal Treasures collection takes full advantage of the wide ranging spectrum of Mother Nature's handiwork. Thanks in large part to the influence of the diamond industry, many people think in terms of "flawless" gems. Yet, while flawless is defined as having no inclusions visible under 10x magnification, one is still able to see some type of minute inclusion(s) when magnification power is increased. In essence, Mother Nature never produces "flawless" gems in either diamonds or colored gemstones. It is those gems with their unique internal characteristics that many collectors and connoisseurs seek out when looking for special stones to add to their collection. Think of these gems as having a roadmap provided by nature. What is an Internal Treasure? In simplest terms, it can be described as a natural "thumbprint" within a gemstone. It is an internal characteristic that separates Mother Nature's creation from a man-made counterpart. Each gem's "thumbprint" provides proof and reassurance that the stone is real. A natural art form, many of the characteristics that make a gemstone unique create unusual patterns that range from exotic to surreal and life-like. In an age when many natural gems are synthesized by man, you can rest assured that you have a very special treasure that was tailored by nature over extended geological periods!
