After months of procrastination, I finally took the first steps toward creating curriculum on gemmology. One of the trends I've noticed in Singapore is how niche jewellery and gemstone shopping is.
The Precious Four are, of course, well known, as are commonly encountered gems like amethyst, topaz, rose quartz, and opal.
Other than these, most people aren't familiar with the different varieties of gems.
With the future of the industry in mind, I thought of bringing gemmology to the younger crowd, including school-going students. Based on some feedback earlier in the year, students in school have some interest in learning about these colourful rocks.
Well, here's to a brighter, more sparkly future for Singapore's gemstone industry!
