COMING SOON: Glorious Gemstones Digital Series


How much do you appreciate gemstones? Do you admire the vast colors? How about the dynamic shapes that can be created by cutting, polishing, faceting, stones? Or, maybe the natural sparkle and glistening present when light hits the edges and planes of gemstones? 

If any or all these aspects have you dreaming about gemstones, all we can say is: good, because it’s those things and more that prompted us to focus our attention on gemstones for our newest FREE digital series.

The Glorious Gemstones series follows the wildly popular series, Illustrious Opals (issues available for download when you register for free on our site >>>). Within the three issues of Glorious Gemstones, we’ll explore the science, artistry, and techniques for working with, collecting, and displaying stones, educational opportunities to expand your gemstone knowledge, and the global appreciation for gemstones. 

Among the specific topics we’ll cover in the Glorious Gemstones series:

• Expert insight about prolific gemstone mines in the U.S.

• Details about gemstone identification and grading

• Fundamentals of faceting gemstones

• Stories of hunting for savorite, amethyst, spinel, and jade, among others

• Behind-the-scenes of studying to earn a gemology degree. 

• Showcase of U.S. State gemstones
