Mystic Gemstone

Vicki IoannouComment

You have probably seen cut gemstones (or synthetics) in jewellery shop windows that have a fantastical, colourful aura about them? Well, unless it is actually a naturally occurring, zillion dollar gem, anything less will probably be described as "mystic", as in mystic topaz or mystic quartz, etc. 

What you probably didn't know is that these stones have been coated with a ultra-thin layer of metallic titanium. 

This coating generates interference patterns in light much like oil spread on water does, leading to a rainbow of colours in the stone.
