Hi All! I just wanted to get started here and say hello to you all. I'm a geologist in Newfoundland, Canada and am ramping up to get started with the ODL Gem-A program in September. It's been awhile since I've had to hunker down to study mineralogy but I'm beginning to get the ol' youthful excitement back. I'm pleased to have found this forum and look forward to chatting with you all!

You will find that optical mineralogy will be a great help to you in the study of gemology, standard mineralogy methods can be a bit on the destructive side for gemstones. eg streak
