Gemstone Education and Learning Resources

Hunting for loose gemstones for sale online can be a daunting task and one beset with plenty of risk for the unwary. The internet (and jewellery stores for that matter!) is full of people selling a variety of gems with next to no information or disclosure on treatments, diffusion, heating, and a myriad of other factors that strongly impact pricing at the retail level. So we at Gemtoria have set out to put a range of resources together so that you can become an educated and competent gemstone shopper and hopefully help you get exactly what you are looking for whether it be from our stock of quality stones or one of our competitors.
