Advanced scientific coloured gem Identification and grading reports

A gemstone is one of nature’s purest and most precious creations. A genuine stone can be extremely valuable. A clever imitation or treated gem can be worth very little and can be hard to detect. At Spectra we have one of the most highly equipped gemmological laboratories in Australia. It allows us to see what others miss.

Unbiased advice
