Clarity Scale Chart
Sapphire and other non-diamond gemstones clarity chart
Natural gemstones almost always have inclusions, indicating that they are natural and not synthetic.
While we do not carry gemstones with inclusions that can overshadow their beauty or can harm their durability, all natural gemstones almost always have some inclusions. Inclusions have an essential role in telling us about the strains and the stresses they endured during its millions of years in the making. Synthetic stones and lab-grown gemstones are often flowless or have fewer inclusions as they were grown rapidly in a controlled environment. Inclusions are a great indicator to show the complexity and uniqueness of every natural gemstone.
Envero Jewelry uses below grading scale for clarity of the natural gemstones.

|VS2||Some inclusion is visible under x10 loupe but not apparent to the naked eyes and does not affect the stone's brilliance|
|SI1||Inclusions can be easily seen under 10x magnification and noticeable to the naked eyes but have no significant effect on appearance and brilliance|
