Since when did people start looking for loupe-clean gems? How did it even come to someone’s mind that a natural mineral should be internally flawless?
A colored stone is not a diamond, where simple “loupe-clean” does not even count, offering multiple VS to IF grades instead.
A colored stone is a source of color, above all. There are three things that matter in gemstones: color, color and color.
What does “loupe-clean” have to do with a natural gem then, and why would someone reject a stone just because it’s got a tiny veil, fissure or rutile inside?

Cleopatra’s Emeralds were not loupe-clean, were they.
Burmese Rubies in Maharajas’ headpieces were not clean, they were red and hard.
A Garnet that illuminated the way for Noah’s Ark was chosen thanks to its brightness and inner glow, rather than the crystal-clear body.

You may ask: why then Yavorskyy and few other gem dinosaurs are famous for their loupe-clean gems in any natural color, size and precision cutting? The answer is simple: because Vlad Yavorskyy started to collect his stones 35 years ago, when he was one of a handful gem dealers, and the stones were abundant and affordable in insane quantities, so that you could easily pick the cream of the crop and end up with a solid collection of flawless gems. Over the years, the scale of artisanal four-feet mining has decreased drastically, while the amount of players in gem business has grown proportionally, so what happened to those creme de la creme clean stones? They simply got more and more rare, as simple as that. And what happens to something that is extremely rare? Right, it gets higher in price.

So the message is: yes we do have those clean Spinel, Tourmaline, Sapphire, Garnet, Aquamarine, we even have loupe-clean Paraiba, Ruby and Emerald. And we cherish them above and beyond, but they are just extremely rare and expensive, reserved in the back of our vault for connoisseurs, investors, maisons and other passionate collectors. If you are one of them - welcome to explore Yavorskyy Fine Gems selection and be prepared to talk serious numbers.

In all other cases we invite you to start loving natural inclusions in gems, just like we do. Not only those inclusions are entertaining in themselves, they also help you trace the crystal growth and avoid any man-made or enhanced material, which is not uncommon lately. Included colored stones should be entitled to all the same regalia of gem-quality crystals, only with a different scale of price and availability. Same as with heat treatment: there’s nothing wrong in enhancing a crystal in order to achieve better color and clarity, only heated gemstones should be adjusted in price, rarity and perhaps the naming… but this subject was already discussed in the introduction to our Gemstones Book.
