If you don’t have a microscope or refractometer handy – what do you do? Hand-held testing equipment can provide quick and easy clues to help you identify gemstones, and they can even fit in your bag or pocket! During this Gem Central practical session, Gem-A Instruments Manager Sam Lloyd FGA DGA EG will guide you through her favourite tools. This session is designed to strengthen your technique and provide you with some handy takeaway tips and tricks that you can use anywhere in the field – whether you’re at an industry event, or, in an actual field!
This workshop is perfect for gemmologists that are just getting started with hand-held tools, or for those looking for a refresher.
Feel free to bring some of your own stones to test.
Gem-A Members and Students can attend this talk for free but must reserve their place on Eventbrite.
