Why Choose Us?

The IGT courses were created with the student in mind. The thought of a day-long slideshow in a dark room isn’t that exciting for us, so we chose to let our students get hands on experience by directly handling these precious gemstones.
We utilize dozens of samples to show exactly what we want to teach, whether that be inclusions, flaws, treatment indicators, color windows on a cut stone, and more.
