Hello I found this website digging for facts about Gemology and became really intrigued.
I plan on going to GIA here pretty soon. I wanted to get a head start on learning
I didn't expect how deep this rabbit hole goes but my god do I love it.
I just turned 29 and before I felt like I didn't know what I wanted to do.
At a young age I was always fascinated by gems and rocks I just never knew
you can get into actual career with this sort of thing.

It's nice to meet all of you!
I wanted to ask what and where should I study before I enroll in GIA?
I been learning a lot off youtube and but just ordered a book off amazon.
I feel like it takes me longer to understand things then most people so
I want to focus really hard and give it my all. Please feel free to recommend
any tips Thanks! : :mrgreen:

Hi Mizu810 and welcome.

There are no prerequisites for the GIA classes. Everything is explained clearly and fundamentally within their curriculum.
You do not need any outside preliminary instruction.
As a mater of fact, I don't recommend it.

You don't want to start off with misinformation.
