Gemmology courses and talks

Are you • a gem lover • a jeweller who wants to know a bit more about the stones you are using in your work • an antique dealer who would like to understand more about the stones you are seeing why not spend a day with me learning a little about the tests gemmologists use to help identify gemstones, the science behind these tests and their results and have the opportunity to handle the stones and see this for yourself.

Gemmology 1 day workshops

These take place at various locations - further details given on each workshop's page.
