I am learning along with you, and plan to build a knowledge base of sorts for my Twisterry customers, here in this blog, but instead of completely reinventing the wheel, I will share lessons I've learned and link to great articles and reference pages from respected organizations and pros, such as the International Gem Society (IGS).

In this post, I share this link to some little-understood-but-oh-so-important information about steam, boiling, and sonic cleaning treatments, provided by IGS.
