Gemological Science International (GSI) has expanded its global footprint with the opening of a new laboratory, located in the hub of the coloured gemstone industry.
Led by industry expert Meenu Vyas, FGA, the facility in Jaipur, India, will offer all of GSI’s core services, as well as a dedicated division specializing in coloured gemstone geographical origin and identification.
