Large, Rare Diamonds a Window into Earth’s Mantle
Breakthrough research led by GIA Postdoctoral Research Fellow Evan Smith examines exceptional diamonds.
Pursue full-time academic research in mineralogy, geology, physics, materials science and other fields related to gemology.
Research not only deepens the world’s understanding of gems, but also protects those who buy or sell them.
Researchers use powerful analytical tools to determine the distinctive characteristics of natural, synthetic and treated gem materials.
GIA pursues a wide range of scientific investigations to gather and analyze data on gemstones, identifying practical solutions to gemological challenges and communicating their findings.
