Gem Identification

Gem identification

The first step in the process of valuing your gems or jewellery is establishing exactly what it is.

Gem identification

Gemmological testing involves observation of the surface and internal characteristics of a gem material and other non-destructive optical and physical tests. If you just want to find out what that stone is that your Aunt gave you, or confirm the identity of something you have purchased, the cost is only $50 per item on our 2 week turnaround. Urgent service is $62.50, and While You Wait service is $75. Bookings can be made here

Gem identification

Some more complex identifications, especially for treated gems, may take longer and cost more but we will advise you first. No need for an appointment just call in to see one of our Gemmologists.


For our standard service there is no need to book, just call in to Constellation Drive at your convenience. We will give you a free quote.
