Diffusion treatment is a treatment used to alter the color of a gemstone (mostly for sapphires). Smaller atoms (usually beryllium) enter the lattice of the crystal and penetrate it deeply. This fairly recent treatment (1990's) is in some cases only detectable by the use of sophisticated laboratory techniques.
