The **Weight of a Heart Shaped Gem** calculator computes the approximate carat weight of an Heart Shape Faceted colored stone (e.g. Ruby).

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**GEM**) Type of Gem (choose from pull-down list) - (
**L**) Length down face of gem - (
**W**) Width across face of gem - (
**D**) Depth of gem - (
**B**) Percent Adder for bulge (default 0%)

**Heart Shaped Gem Carat Weight (Wt):** The calculator returns the weight estimate in carats. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

The weight of a gem is a function the volume and the specific gravity. The volume is estimated base on the gem's shape and dimensions. The specific gravity is dictated by the type of gem. For the specific gravity of different gem, CLICK HERE.

The carat weight equations and data used in vCalc's jewelry library and calculator were reviewed by a certified gemologist. The equations are based on industry recognized formulas and data. The table below shows a comparison of computations between vCalc and an industry accepted application (Quantum Leap).

The length, width and depth are in millimeters (mm), and the Quantum Leap and vCalc measurements are in carats (cwt).

The largest variance, an oval faceted alexandrite, which can be seen in the last row above, has been double checked against several source equations which tend to support vCalc's accuracy.
