Because optimization is a very common practice, it does not change the structure of the texture of sapphire, so in accordance with international practice, optimized sapphire at the time of sale can not explain, you can not do on the certificate of authenticity label. If a single say "deal", then it is more than the heating method, there are populated staining, etc., these glorified sapphire treated, to be marked on the certificate of authenticity "Sapphire (processing)" words.

Fifth, when the selection of sapphire what standard?
