Enhancements: Gemstone enhancement processes have been used for hundreds of years. In the recent years, the industry is now educating consumers on these issues. The most common practice is the heat treatment of gemstones to help improve upon the color and clarity. This is usually done at the source of the gemstone material and it is a permanent and stable process.
Example: most citrine quartz is amethyst that has been heated.
