Auguste Victor Louis Verneuil. This is the name of the first person to grow a perfect ruby crystal. It was 120 years ago that Verneuil invented the flame fusion process, now known as the Verneuil process, which is still used to create synthetic corundum and rubies. This first synthetic ruby is considered to be the first created gemstone and exhibits no difference whatever to rubies found in nature.


Creating a variety of shapes and colors. What makes these stones grown in the laboratory so special is that they exhibit exactly the same physical and chemical properties as their natural counterparts. Thanks to ongoing advanced development and research, we can today provide a broad spectrum of colors. Our range of synthetic gemstones now includes more than forty different synthetic colors and reproductions which have long ceased to deserve to be labeled imitations.
