Study gemology

Gemology is the science of gem materials, and a specialized offshoot of an older branch of science mineralogy. Study gemology covers all technical aspects of gemstones and gem materials. Their chemical, physical and optical properties, the techniques used for the production of gem imitations and synthetics, the cutting and polishing of gemstones, and more importantly the methods and instruments employed in the identification, grading and appraisal of gemstones.

The term ‘gem material’ covers an enormous range of possibilities. Most gem materials are minerals, but of the 3000 or so, minerals known to man, only about 70 are considered to possess the qualities attributed to that special category called ‘gemstones’.

“If need guaranteed gem stones, go here” – I was looking for answers regarding gem stones sold in the old market and this place provided me all the informations i needed to know especially authenticity of the gems. Apparently most gem stores in the market will sell you fake ones. I enrolled to a 3hour workshop and it definitely broadend my knowledge about gemstones. They gave me a certificate afterwards and it was really a worthy 3hours. Mr. Jean is really passionate about gems. Do check their website, contact them and they’ll have a tuk-tuk pick you up at your hotel. In any case you’re not interested in studying gems just visit and see the gemstones he has readily available for sale – November 12, 2015

“Awesome visit – interesting and eye opening” – Great place to visit! We took the 1 hour lesson, which ended up to be a bit longer due to the great amount of knowledge that was being shared by Jean. Jean was great at not just explaining the different types of stones, but was also great at bringing it to life in the cambodian context as well as with very cool stories. Also very great demonstrations in the lab where you actually get to see different types of gems and try to figure out which one is real, treated or synthetic! There is also a great selection of local cambodian Gems to purchase at very reasonable prices after the lesson. Learnt a lot, had a lot of fun and left with a nice cambodian gem and a new found appreciation for gemology! – February 5, 2016

Tanya, Sebastian & Scott, has completed the training course in gemology.

We took our 8 year old son along for a one hour course since he has been very interested in gems, rocks and crystals. Jeanne-Pierre spent far more than the allocated hour and was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic on the subject of gemmology. Our son thoroughly enjoyed the course, as did we, especially the session in the laboratory, identifying different gems under the microscope. He was delighted to go away with a certificate and also a Praseolite stone. Thank you. – March 29, 2016
