This gemology thing....its not rocket science, you know. And it's not some Magical Mystical Knowledge that some seem to treat as proprietary knowledge by charging huge amounts of money for the training. It's gemology, the study of gems. During our ISG Journey Thru Gemology presentations on Tuesday evenings we are traveling through the realm of gemology step by step, in a journey of fun and learning. Last Tuesday we studied the hydrothermal process of gemstone creation. And "creation" is the proper term, not synthetic. Creating gemstones in a lab is an art that must be learned and perfected using imagination and skill. Synthetic gemstones, by definition, do not really exist.
