What is fracture filled?

Fracture filled is a term used for a gem treated to fracture filling. Fracture filling, also known as clarity enhancement, refers to a method of improving the appearance of a gemstone by sealing the cavities occurring on its surface with items like resin, oil, and glass. The treatment also masks the fractures, improves clarity, adds to the weight and increases stability of the stone.
