Lotus has just officially released Hyperion, the worlds first gem inclusion search engine.
It is free online library, focusing on ruby, sapphire and spinel. There seems to be over 500 photos currently.

http://lotusgemology.com/index.php/libr ... on-gallery

Amazing piece of work freely given to gemological community. Each photo has been well described and the search works flawlessly. The photos are carefully chosen to be as informative as photos can be. There is even links to references. I've already spent hours there, pulling out a stone every now and then for checking in microscope. Well done Lotus folks \:D/ =D> =D> =D>

I have introduced our supplier to Lotus Gemology and they are very satisfied with Report's reliability and even price comparing to other labs,

and this library is indeed best contribution to gemology world, a Mobile App would also be great for this services
