Students in the gemstone course were assigned a presentation, which for some was web-based. The final project topics were student decisions, with the only requirement that it be related to their new knowledge of gemstones and gemology. The webpages are submitted and peer-reviewed. Enjoy these creative and informative projects!

At our last class meeting each semester, we have a conference where students present their projects; because we meet at 6 pm we begin with a light meal!

To view past student projects, simply choose a semester to find a specific person or visit a topic of interest from the tables below.
