Coloured Gemstone Identification Course

COLOURD GEMSTONE INDENTIFICATION COURSE ( CGIC )

We at INDRAPRSTHA GEM & JEWELLERY INSTITUTE through CGIC covers complete knowledge about the identification of colored gemstone. We help you to identify and separate colored gemstone among in various imitation and synthetic available in the market. We also conduct the study classes to impart theoretical, scientific,technical knowledge and practical experience in the colored gemstone trade .We also train you to identify treatments and enhancements done in the market to enhance the beauty and value of colored gemstones . You shall learn the use and working of Gemological Instruments in the process of Gem Testing,you shall handle hundreds of actual stones like rubies,sapphires, emeralds etc. ( Cut + Rough ) during the learning process and in the end shall identify more than a hundred stones on your own using various Gem instruments.
