Considering the heavy demand from the industry and general public, Surya institute of gemology has designed short term courses for identification of gemstones, treatments, as well as further education courses in Gemmology.
Having a collection of over a thousand rough and cut stones, this course offers students a rare opportunity to examine the entire major synthetic and treated gem varieties found within the marketplace.
Being able to identify synthetic and, especially, treated materials is a vital aspect of the modern gem and jewelry industry and many gem dealers have lost large sums of money by buying such stones as natural Gem stones.
