Welcome to The Gemology Project

The Gemology Project is a non-profit gemstone and gem science wiki-style database for anyone interested in gemstones and gemology (gemmology). Every month we highlight a gemstone and a piece of gemstone identification equipment to help us all understand more about the wonderful world of colored stones and diamonds. The Project begins with a general tutorial as an Introduction to Gemology.

We invite every gemologist, gemstone dealer or gem enthusiast to share their practical and theoretical gemological knowledge and help this central gemology repository grow.
You can simply click on the "submission" links at the top and bottom of each page and your information will be included as soon as possible.

You can navigate through the site with the aid of our Contents page
