What is the difference between natural and enhanced color?

Natural Color gemstones are the same color as the natural stone without anything done to improve the color or clarity.
Enhanced (dyed or heat treated) color stones are heat treated or dyed to bring out the vibrance of the color or increase the patterns. Impression jasper and druzy agate are commonly dyed (or coated) and you can see this in the description: “Impression Jasper Green Graduated Stick ”and “Coated Agate Druzy Round Beads.”

What do you mean by “natural stone”?

Natural (real) gemstones are mined directly from the earth. Nothing is done to them other than cleaning, cutting and polishing. Natural Color gemstones are the same color as the natural stone without anything done to improve the color or clarity
