Genuine Chatham lab created emeralds are real emeralds. They are not fakes, faux or imitation gemstones. The natural processes of nature were recreated in the Chatham Research Labs in order to create these synthetic emeralds. These Chatham emeralds have the same optical and chemical properties of the natural gems and they are composed of the same natural elements. All emeralds have telltale inclusions locked in each stone. Only the trained eye of a gemologist can distinguish the subtle variations between a Chatham Created Emerald and one grown naturally in the earth.
