I purchased a sapphire from a friend and the appraisal came from International GEMMOLOGICAL Institute. When I looked it up, it doesn’t exist. Has anyone ever heard of this organization or is it straight up fraudulent.

Interesting. The spelling on the web is Gemological, not Gemmological as in the report.

But the facebook page spells it with two m's.

I wonder if they are the same? Or is one a scam?
