    By Basil Anderson, James Payne, and Keith Mitchell, "The Spectroscope and Gemmology" is the first book devoted exclusively to the spectroscope and its use in gemstone identification. Indispensable for both students and professionals.   Gemmology is a text for students preparing for the Gemmological Association's Preliminary and Diploma examinations. The book is more expansive and up-to-date than the author's earlier book, Beginner's Guide to Gemmology. The book deals with the practical and theoretical sides of gemmology. Tracing the background and science of gemmology, the book covers the gem material, .

    The GL Gem Spectrometer is an advanced gem testing instrument for users who have a good understanding of spectroscopy and should be familiar with the use of a traditional gemmological spectroscope and the interpretation of spectra. My interest in spectroscopy goes back to Bill Hannemann’s book “Video-Spectroscopy: 21st Century Gemology.   The book is more expansive and up-to-date than the author's earlier book, Beginner's Guide to Gemmology. The book deals with the practical and theoretical sides of gemmology. Tracing the background and science of gemmology, the book covers the gem material, geological formation, and occurrence of gemstones on the Edition: 1.

The book deals with the practical and theoretical sides of gemmology. Gemmological Instruments deals with the developments in diamond grading equipment and gem testing instruments since the publication of the first edition in These developments include improvements in the versatility and styling of existing instruments such as the reflectivity meter, the composite spectroscope, and the refractometer.

The spectroscope is a tool for examining which parts of white light are absorbed by a gemstone (as well as by other materials). Materials can absorb parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, and when the absorbed parts fall within the visible range, that absorbed part will influence the color of the material.

Many gemologists have difficulty mastering the direct-vision spectroscope. This article eases the pain. Gem testing laboratories make use of a variety of instruments, both high-brow and low. Of primary importance are the microscope, refractometer, ultraviolet light, specific gravity equipment, Author: Richard W.

This post was originally named “My Five Favourite Gemmology Books”, but it was too hard to leave out excellent books. COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

So manifold was the enormous amount of material that has been accumulated in sixty years of spectroscopic research that it seemed at first beyond the possibility of disentanglement. An almost greater enlightenment has resulted from the seven years of Röntgen spectroscopy, inasmuch as it has attacked the problem.

Since the display is much darker than a prism spectroscope, lighting is a particular consideration. (See our review of the GL Spectroscope).

The spectroscope is one of the last gemology tools you’ll need to add to your lab.
