What are the qualities factors in Crystal quartz?
It may seem weird but there are many qualities that are do able in Crystal quartz cabochons. So let us explain what type of qualities are available and what types of qualities you can buy at wholesale from us.
- AAA quality – this crystal clear quality does not contain any type of inclusions or blemishes. This type of quality is rare in the market where sellers sell qualities AAA but under proper magnification and proper investigation, you’ll realize they have slight inclusions. Best way to judge the quality is by placing the cabochons on black paper or sheet. This quality of cabochons is rare but possible to manufacturer in wholesale quantities. Basically the rough has to be sorted that way, when we bought our rough they come clean but mostly they have very slight inclusions not spotted by the naked eye. But what we do to make this AAA quality is mark on the rough, which have some inclusions to make sure we don’t include those inclusions. This way, when we cut it we get lesser output, and sometimes the output can be 40% lesser than the output if we included the inclusions, that’s why the price of AAA quality is much more than other companies and other qualities.
- AA quality is the easiest quality to manage, as eye visible inclusions are acceptable for the customers. This quality is usually used in jewellery that is mass produced as cost becomes the most important issue for the sellers as customers are very price sensitive because marketing does not happen of these produces, especially with almost no focus on brand image. This quality like mentioned above may be up to 50% less expensive than AAA quality.
- A quality – this is the quality we use to make wands and this quality may be milky, up to 90% of the stone my be milky to save cost and use whatever part of the rough as it comes. This is most inexpensive type of Crystal quartz cabochon.
