Aussie Sapphire has always provided the best in natural gems but we have had many enquiries from our faceting customers for some good cheap practice rough to work with.
We always prefer the "Real Thing" in gem rough but understand the need to supply a cheaper alternative to natural. This material is ideal for beginners right through to the best competition cutters.
PLEASE always mark these gems CLEARLY as SYNTHETIC - even if you do not intend to sell them. Truth in labelling is so important in the gem industry - clear labelling and full disclosure will prevent any misunderstandings.
