*Required for GIA Graduate Gemologist and Graduate Colored Stones Diplomas9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
In this lab, students practice the same time-tested procedures and identification skills used by the Institute's renowned gemological experts. Tools used include a microscope, a refractometer with polarizing filter and a removable magnifying eyepiece, refractive index (RI) liquid, a polariscope with an optic figure sphere, a dichroscope, a table model prism spectroscope, a handheld spectroscope, and a loupe. Students use these instruments to practice identifying natural gemstones, imitations, assembled stones and synthetics. Along with this hands-on training, your facilitators will carefully demonstrate key tests and coach you in quick, effective testing procedures. (Be sure to read the Student Notification of Classroom Chemical Usage in the most current version of the GIA Education Catalog at GIA.edu.) Once you have completed the session, you can keep a lab manual, a gem cloth, and a color grading card.

Inclusions are an unending source of fascination for gem professionals. In this seminar, you'll use our lab equipment to explore the interiors of specially-chosen rubies, sapphires, and emeralds and gain insight into what a gem's internal characteristics can tell you about how and where it formed, and whether it's treated. Through lecture and hands-on practice, you'll get an up-close look at gems from new sources, learn to recognize specific types of inclusions, and understand their significance for laboratory gemologists in helping determine geologic origin, possible country of origin, and indicating potential treatment.
Tuition: $225.00
