"To those who are able to explore their secrets, precious stones relate to story as interesting as that of the huge pyramids erected by the Pharaohs at Memphis, and it would seem that their sublime internal spheres might be called, The Fingerprints of God" and also he called them "The usurpers from the factory". 
Edward J. Gübelin Inclusions as a Means of Gemstone Identification, 1953.
I think the best way I have to show my customers that my stones are natural is by showing them their interior, which is unique and beautiful. The scale of microphotography can be up to X50.
