Hello and welcome! I’m going ahead with opening this blog, despite lack of customization, so as not to prolong my starting writing about gemology (which after all is the whole point of having it.) I’ll be writing about gemstones, their history and lore, and the interesting things I learn as I work toward my Graduate Gemologist diploma. I will periodically talk about gem books I’m reading (and my favorites), online resources (as I find them) and new additions to my modest gem collection. I’m very fond of photos, and will post some as appropriate, but I don’t intend this to be a photo-blog.
I’m passionate about gemstones and I’m excited to share my passion on this site! Stay tuned!
