Brown tint in gemstones - is it good or not

Коричневый оттенок. Польза или Вред

If you will go through various gemological materials and specialized sources, you could find there the information that brown or gray tint in a stone is not good option for the stone. Let's figure it out. In fact, this is not bad at all - it's just a fact.

BUT the presence of these shades in the stone should affect their price - these stones are ALWAYS cheaper. All other things being equal, of course.

What does the presence of a brown or gray tint in a stone mean? All colors can be conditionally divided into two groups: warm - pink, red, orange ..and cold - blue, blue .. The most important thing when we judge the color it is saturation of this color.

So here is a very interesting life hack - for warm shades, the presence of a brown tint in the stone means WEAK SATURATION. Likewise for colder shades - a gray shade is responsible for low saturation.

This tone is NOT BAD! This only means that the stone is not top-end in one of the most important parameters - in color, and therefore MUST NOT be expensive. But at the same time, these stones can be very nice and attractive.

For example, a red spinel of the classic bright red color will cost significantly more than the same red spinel, which has a brownish tint.

Or sapphire - pure cornflower blue sapphire will be much more expensive than the same pure sapphire, but blue-gray.

Bright orange spessartine will always be more expensive than brownish orange.
