[The unique reflection spectra and IR characteristics of golden-color seawater cultured pearl].

[Article in Chinese]


A comparative study on the natural-color golden seawater cultured pearls and the treated-color golden seawater cultured pearls were carried out by UV-Vis reflectance spectra. Furthermore, the frequency variations of v3, v1 , v2 and v4 bands of the aragonites (a crystal form of calcium carbonate) with the positions of nacreous layer and nucleus in natural or treated-color golden-color seawater cultured pearls were firstly systematically measured. The results showed that: (1) based on the results of UV-Vis reflectance spectra of natural or treated-color golden seawater cultured pearls, interestingly, it was firstly found that the natural-color golden one displays slight varied UV-Vis reflection spectra because of its different surface microstructure located on the outer nacreous layer. Meanwhile, according to the characteristic of UV-Vis reflectance spectra of treated-color golden ones, the treated-color ones were firstly classified to four categories. (2) The frequency of v2 band of aragonite in nacreous layer of natural-color or treated-color golden pearls was greater than the other one from theirs corresponding nucleus, namely A clear blue shift was observed in the former. But the other bands were not altered in the positions of nacreous layer and nucleus, and had the same valves with synthetic aragonites. Additionally, the location of absorption bands of aragonite in nacreous layer of natural or treated-color golden pearls had no frequency shift, which indicates that the behavior of color-treating had no effect on the crystal structure of golden pearls.
