the difference between blemish and inclusion

Before we go into the difference let us first look at the definition terms. 


Blemish  is an irregularity that is confined to the surface of a polished  gemstone, while Inclusion is enclosed within the gemstone or reaches the  surface from the interior.


In  other words inclusion is an irregularity in the gemstone, sometimes  within the gemstone or sometimes starting from the surface going to the  inner part of the gemstone. Most of the time when gemstone has an  inclusion, it is not easy to remove it. If you try to remove it by force  you will end up reducing the weight of a gemstone. 

And blemish is an irregularity on the surface of a gemstone, which means is easy to remove during gem cutting.


Some  of the blemish occurs during the gem movement. Gemstone blemish can  also happen after cutting if there is a poor handling. 

It is advisable  to pack well to avoid scratches which can lead to blemish, so pack well  and differently.

But one uniqueness about inclusion is, it can help identify the gemstone if is natural or synthetic.
