Gemology has come a long way as a field since its start in the early 1900s. Initially, gemology’s question was: “what is this stone?” Then: “is this stone laboratory-grown or natural?” and then “has this stone been treated?” Now, the all-consuming question is: “which country is this stone from?” As the industry evolves and our knowledge expands, so does our desire to learn more. That’s why advanced analytical techniques have become indispensable to modern gemology. Tune in as GIA research associate, Ziyin Sun, explores the instruments and techniques used to address gemology’s most pressing questions.
