Been a while since I posted (February!!!) and not heard a thing since that phone call with Andy. So anyone know if these treatments are still being checked out now Steve is back in the driving seat? I would particularly like to know about my 'Majestic' Emerald from Zambia, Black Opal from Lightening Ridge and Alexandarite.
Opal - I know it shouldn't be other forum members who answer for GemsTV but I hope I can help here. Before Steve took over, official word from GemsTV was that all their Alexandrite (bought before about 2008 I think) was natural - so nothing to worry about there if yours was one of those purchased a while ago. Also their Opals have always been sold as natural and NOT doublets or triplets. Again I know this applies to the older items but I haven't got a clue about newer items. In terms of the Majestic Emerald, I don't have any concrete proof but I'm pretty certain they're either dyed or filled (sorry and I hope I'm wrong). I'm pretty sure somebody was told this when they enquired- if you've got a spare few days, track back through this thread to see if you can find anything.
