Determination of origin

An important task of the gemmologist is determining the geographical origin of the gemstone, for which comprehensive geological knowledge is necessary.

The value of coloured gemstones varies tremendously depending on their geographical origin. The most famous mines, such as those in Burma, Kashmir or Columbia, are already or will soon be depleted and high-quality gems from these deposits are becoming even more scarce.
