By creating changes in gemstones’ crystalline structure, advanced radiation processing can duplicate colors only nature could otherwise provide, as well as make the color more vibrant. Topaz, which is mined clear, becomes sky blue when treated with high-energy Electron beam (E-Beam). The color of quartz, tourmaline, aquamarine, and emerald gemstones can be similarly enhanced when treated with Gamma radiation.
