Hey there!

I'm Julia, the gemmologist behind The Gem Academy.

Aristotle famously wrote; "The more you know, the more you realise you don't know".  It can certainly feel that way with gemmology as it is a whole other world to explore. 

Learning one area of gemmology opens up many questions.  Can you relate?  If so  - I've built this platform for you.

My goal is to bring you comprehensive, accessible education that will make you an expert in the respective field.  How do I do this?  By breaking-down specialist gemmological topics and leaving no stone unturned.

Don't tell me knowledge isn't power.  Education changes everything.
