Basic Gemstone Identification Workshop

Jewelry/Gems, Art Talk

Using the instructor’s stones, students will make basic gemstone observations using special gemological tools, apply gemological methods, use informational handouts, have access to the instructor’s gemology library, and identify stones. In the last class, you may bring your own stones to identify. Upon completing the class, students receive a certificate, allowing them to do future gemstone identifications during scheduled labs at the instructor’s gallery for a small fee. Beginners welcome.
