Hello all at GO! :)

I am Ratna, 20 years old and have been loving gems since young age.
I'm not a gemologist, however I have studied some of my favorite gems so much that I can say I'm an amateur expert on these :P

GemologyOnline.com has been a helpful site for me before, but I found the forum only a couple of days ago.

My main subjects of interest are ancient gems, historical gems, gemstone lore, and gems in jewelry and art. I hope I can be of help on the forum with my humble knowledge :smt083 and also find more info here about carnelian, one of my favourite gems. (See also my topic at the 'ask the experts' section :wink: )

A nice day to all of you,
Ratna.

welcome Ratna, the meaning of Ratna is "Gem" and you are interested in gemstones field. So I think it is a good sign for you.

Hihi, well... :oops:

I have to say it's not my real name. Let's be honest. I'm always very reluctant to place my real name, and any information about me on the internet, especially on public sites :P Just a personal thing, nothing to do with you guys :smt083

I have especially chosen Ratna because of the meaning :D

In gemology with the help of inclusions gemologist guess the place or locality of the gemstones.

The word Ratna is mostly use in Sri Lanka (Ratna pura a place famous for gemstones), India(Nine Ratan is the word use for 9 gems) and Nepal for gem.
