New York

Arriving in New York, I embark on the final portion of my gemology courses, Colored Stone Grading and Gem Identification.  It is a segment I am eager to learn about, as gems posses so many unique, interesting, and varying traits from one species to the next. With such a large and differing range, gems are both plentiful, yet rare in many instances and to various degrees.  With an open mind and a thirst for knowledge, I look forward to next step in becoming a GIA Graduate Gemologist.
