Description

Gemological Institute of Cambodia is an independent company that stocks a wide range of authentic gemstones from all over the world. Founded by Jean-Philippe Lepage, the laboratory is fitted with an exhibition room with over 150 varieties of gemstones from Cambodia, Myanmar, New Zealand, and Colombia. Gemological Institute of Cambodia also offers half-day (US$30) and hour-long (US$30) classes on gemmology in English and French, where visitors are introduced to gemstones found in Cambodia, such as zircon, rubies, sapphire, garnet, topaz, aquamarine, crystalline quartz, and chalcedony. If you are looking for precious stones in Siem Reap, this is a far more reliable source than the local markets.
