Gem Identification

Identifying a gem is a much more complicated process than simply looking at a gemstone with the naked eye. Even an accredited expert with years of experience in the field can’t ID every gem with perfect precision at a mere glance. We might be able to give you a list of likely possibilities when you first show us a gem, but figuring out exactly what type it is? Determining whether it’s natural, synthetic, or even a very convincing fake? That requires no small bit of testing and a good look under the microscope.

Our staff stays current with all the latest treatments and enhancements in the gem market, and puts our wealth of knowledge to good use when you bring us one to identify. Is that a garnet you’re holding, or is it a ruby? If it’s a ruby, is it Burmese, Indian, or another variety? Let Northeast Gemological examine it, and we’ll be able to tell you everything you want to know about your gemstone!
