The Fascinating World of Gems

We spend our morning in a wonderful place, where we  learned about the fantastic world of gems.slide1

The Spanish Gemological Institute is a non-profit association founded in 1967 with the aim to study, teach and promote gemology in Spain. Currently, it has more than 400 associated jewelry and gemology professionals and firms in Spain and other countries.
