It is possible to enhance and beautify crystals using a variety of ways. You can enhance Crystal properties in any way possible. The value of a crystal rises when it undergoes modifications, which are extremely simple to perform. In many crystals, color and clarity may be increased, and there are various ways to do it. As a result, some upgrades are conventional approaches with a long-term effect, while others are done only by shady individuals. So apply these secret techniques to improve crystals:


The most popular technique for improving gemstones is heating. It's common to practice heat gemstones like sapphires and rubies so that they can achieve their full-color potential. Corundum's elements are rearranged by heating. There is a lot of heat, and it's close to the point where the stone will melt. The rutile needles (TiO2), for example, may start to disintegrate and reappear. For example, iron may migrate, and the color, if it is patchy, may become both more robust and more uniform.

 With the widespread use of heating in corundum and tanzanite, it is rare to locate an untreated stone of exceptional color. It is possible to tell unheated stones from hot ones because their inclusions remain unchanged. If unheated, tanzanite is typically a greenish-brown color, and hence any blue tanzanite stone should be regarded enhanced.

Treatment with Diffusion

It is only recently that the enhancing method known as diffusion treatment has been developed. Corundum is a frequent material for this treatment, and it is almost always applied to stones that have already been carved into various shapes. Diffusion is the process of heating a stone to a temperature close to its melting point and then adding colorants. Adding more titanium and iron to the blue sapphire could heat it. It is as though these different compounds are absorbed into the stone. In most cases, they merely penetrate the stone by microns, yet the effect they have on it is substantial. When corundum is used to make asterisms, titanium can be added to the stone, resulting in star rubies and sapphires.

If the stone's exterior isn't manually polished or scratched away, the color enhancement caused by diffusion treatment is permanent. It is necessary to repolish the stone after it has been heated in the diffusion process to remove the pits. Because the untreated stone may be exposed, you must do this carefully or dilute the impact.

As a permanent enhancement, diffusion treatment is permitted, but you must disclose it to customers by Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulations.

Dyeing and Impregnation.

Except for diamonds, you can penetrate precious stones such as amethyst and emerald (which will allow fluids to penetrate and flow through them). You can apply colors and oils and waxes to these stones. It is possible to add a new color to the stone by filling in the tiny pores or inserting wax into the pores to make the stone shiny or cover gaps.

An emerald filled with emerald is less reflective, allowing more light to pass through. As a result, light-scattering fissures' appearance and adverse effects can be improved. Emery looks better in general than before.

Natural and synthetic resins (both natural and synthetic) have been utilized in the past. Almost all emeralds for sale are oiled. Little is spoken about it because it is common to practice, and most people are ignorant of its use. Stones must be reoiled every 5 to 10 years since they dry out. Washing dishes while wearing an emerald ring is not a good idea.

Don't use a porous stone to wash dishes since dirt can get inside the stone. It is not uncommon for opal to be purposefully blackened by first soaking it in a sugar solution, then burning the sugar with acid (nitric acid, etc.). An off-colored white or off-white form of opal is always "sugared" to look like the most costly, black opal.

Agates can be dyed with sugar, which is legal. However, agates are porous enough to take colors because of their cryptocrystalline structure. Almost all of the brightly colored agates are dyed. However, agates are porous enough to take colors because of their cryptocrystalline structure. Agate dyeing was perfected in Germany at Idar-Oberstein, where various techniques for coloring stone have been developed with time.

If too much oil is absorbed from the wearer's skin, turquoise will turn greenish. Impregnating the turquoise with a colored resin can transform a chalky-textured turquoise into a shiny-bright sky blue.


By applying these secrete techniques to improve crystals, you can increase the appearance and wearability of crystals. Some techniques have been used for decades or even centuries are being used. Many people don't know that some crystals are enhanced, even though they are prevalent. So we have concluded some of the most popular techniques. Hopefully, you got new techniques to improve your crystals.
