GSI Expands With New Lab in Jaipur, India
The facility will take advantage of its location in the colored stone hub with a division dedicated to geographic origin and identification.
The gemological organization has opened a new lab in Jaipur, India.
With its location in the colored stone hub, the lab will offer all GSI’s core services—like diamond grading and testing, laser inscription, diamond light analysis, and grading reports—as well as a division specializing in colored stone geographic origin determination and identification.
The facility has state-of-the-art equipment to help in these endeavors, GSI said, and a team of professionals led by industry expert Meenu Vyas, FGA.
The lab said colored stone origin and identification is not new for it; the service has been a part of its core offering.
Origin determination from the Jaipur lab is starting immediately.
The laboratory will also offer educational programs, including entry level and advanced colored stone identification courses, seminars, and lectures.
“We are thrilled to continue GSI’s global expansion and open another laboratory in India,” GSI President and Co-Founder Debbie Azar said. “The demand for GSI certification and origin testing for natural and lab-grown diamonds as well as colored gemstones continues to grow, and the Jaipur lab will help us meet that global need.”
The new lab is located on II Floor, Rajasthan Chamber Bhawan, Mirza Ismail Road.
