How does GIA’s gem lending system work?

If you are a Distance Education student enrolled in Gem Identification, GIA will loan you the stones you need for hands-on training in identification. Once you’ve completed your identification assignments, you return the stones to GIA. Please keep in mind that the stones may be borrowed only for a limited amount of time.
