GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The Gem Identification module goes through all the gems seen in the Coloured Gemstones module, colour by colour, to allow you to differentiate gems by different criteria. Red, blue, green and other gems will be compared together: lustre, hardness, inclusions, reaction to instruments. This module is the perfect introduction to the practical identification workshops. It is a perfect exercise to prepare for the identification of gems and to train the gemmologist’s skills.
