Hi everyone! :D
Although I have already posted on this forum, I have never found the right time to introduce myself.
My name is Luca, I am 39 years old. I live next to Rome and I work in Hospital as doctor.
I use radioactive sources to detect and (when it is possible) to treat cancer (i.e. nuclear medicine). I love my job and I try to do my best for my patients.
In the last year, I started to study gems and gemology in my (too little) free time. I like microscopy and I do really enjoy observing gems' inclusions under magnification. I have so much to learn...
I think that this forum is a great place for learning, but also for sharing opinions.
Thank you all for your contributions!
=D>

Luca

ps: BTW recently I found an interesting "intersection" between my discipline and gemology... regarding the Raman spectroscopy
I your want to take a look:

Welcome! The gem world is a fun and friendly place--just look out for people trying to get friendly while clutching a bag of stones that they're hoping you'll irradiate :)
