Zirconia is what the difference between a CZ and a real diamond?
The answer is not much. CZ are rapidly becoming a substitute for diamonds in the world.
With just the naked eye, most people are not able to distinguish between a CZ and the real thing, the experts have to use the zoom and other tests to determine which is false, and this is a real diamond.
The most important thing is that to the untrained eye, CZ looks identical to a real diamond. CZ is underMagnifying do not shine and gloss as the stones are genuine, and offer more variety, or "fire" in the reflections they produce.
Russians were the first to develop stones as a substitute for the optical lens and in its space program, the diamonds were too expensive.
CZS are also reflective, in most cases, and their light scattering and hardness are very close to a diamond.
There are some important factors and determinants, which is to distinguish between a diamondand CZ. But keep in mind that to the naked eye is not sufficient to distinguish between the two lens microscope and other tools are needed.
The hardness of the stone is the first thing to examine the area around CZ often rated 8.5 to 9.0 Mohs hardness and diamonds, 10. Diamonds as the hardest substance known to man, are at the upper end of the scale, 10 is the highest ranking is at present.
Glass, sand and rocks are classified by about 5 or 6, so as not to damage or scratch a CZso do not worry about its durability.
CZS and diamonds do very different weight. CZS are about 1.75 times heavier than a diamond of similar size. Basically, what a CZ the same size as a 1-carat diamond, 1.75 carat in fact, a comparison is difficult, just in terms of size and weight.
Although it is difficult or almost impossible to find a flawless diamond, CZS are almost perfect because they are made, human and manufactured in laboratories. Most diamonds contain someImperfections may be evident only under magnification.
The perfection of means, or a rock that is extremely rare flawless diamond expensive, or it is a CZ.
Speaking of colors, and the lack of color, only the rarest and most perfect diamonds are colorless, are more of a yellow tint or brown. Most CZS are completely colorless, giving them a perfect score on the scale color diamond, once again very difficult to obtain in nature.
Even under the microscope, the structure of the CZSis very different from diamonds. It 'obvious (under magnification), the stones were produced in nature, and which were made in a laboratory.
The isolation of the CZS and diamonds is also different, which is not so important in jewelry, but also in other applications where the stones are used. Machining and cutting production stability, thermal-lens applications and examples of thermal dynamics, the stones.
Remember, it is almost impossible to get a CZ for a distinctionreal diamond to the naked eye. Only testing will prove safe. If you are looking for better, cheaper alternative to real stone is a CZ is the right choice.
