The World of Gemstones

Recognize the Gemstones

recognize the gemstones

Familiarize yourself with gemology and how to identify gemstones.

Transported into the ambiance of the great precious stone markets--Chanthaburi in Thailand, Ratnapura in Sri Lanka or Bogota in Colombia--you will learn to distinguish a group of different gemstones, which can seem very similar to the uninitiated. You will observe stones with your naked eye and then with the professsionals' instruments: hydrostatic scale, refractometer, polariscope, and specific gemologists' scale.
