Welcome to a great place to learn and discuss all things sparkly. Lol You have come to a wonderful world full of knowledgeable people that have been doing this for years and are happy to help in any way they can. We all are passionate about gemology and teaching the right way to identify the stones the we work with.
All the best in this new adventure.
