Hi, i´ll travel to Jaipur next month to look for some rougth and cut stones.
All references (places, people, shops, tips.......)are wellcome.
I studied gemology many years ago but i have not praxis, so i want search first for practices course there and then adquire a good collection.
Lot of thanks. Miguel.

Hi Miguel
Lots of gem dealers and cutting workshops in Jaipur. In Chameliwala market alone said to be over 300 shops selling jewellery and gemstones.Still it is hard to find fine quality gemstones or good cutters. the labor is cheap and most buy low grade rough. Its your first time in Jaipur, so hard to know who you can trust. Check out
the Gem testing laboratory on MI road (Mirza Ismal road)
Jaipur as a history for emeralds The faceted emerald beads are a good buy
