Hi there, I'm Robin :) I've stumbled on this site a few times over the years when googling my questions, and it's always been helpful. I guess I didn't join until now because I never really had anything to offer myself.

I'm a hobbyist, a bit of a gem addict. I have a special interest in stones with inclusions.

I've been collecting for a couple of years and doing the best research I know how to do. I get *sooo excited* over this stuff, I wanna learn everything I can about everything to do with gems.

I would love to eventually get some gemology courses, but money and time are a factor for me at this stage, so in the meantime, I hope I don't drive you all crazy with questions ^_^

Cheers!

I'm glad you pulled up a chair and joined right in.

There are a lot of links on the left which can supply you with a good introduction to gemology and the price is reasonable: free.

Truth be told, all the links on the left are excellent sources for free information.
Welcome.

Hello Robin,

I'm also new here. I'm a gem lover too but not an expert like most of people here. It was my mom who introduced me to wear one. I was convinced that they're some kind of amulets for good fortunes and good health lol. I'm looking forward to learn a lot from here. The thread looks very interesting.
