Visual identification guide for new treatments applied to corundum. The following pictures were taken using a plastic immersion cell above a portable OSRAM Dulux Mini portable lamp, using Baby Oil for immersion (10x loupe magnification sufficient). The immersion cell can be any simple plastic box. Warning: Do not use methylene iodine with this set up. Stone sizes ranging from 1 to 7 carats. Details on new treatment of sapphires check our upcoming Journal #3, 2004.
