The education in Gemstone technology is a cooperation between Kristallen and Luleå Technical University. It is a two year long education wich covers both teoretical and practical aspects of the gemstone and jewellery business. The students gets to learn basic geology together with a special course in the geology of gemstones, how to practically cut stones, cabochones, fasettstones and stones with optical effects. Jewellrymaking and stonesetting is also an important part as well as several courses in gemmology, chemistry, mineralogy and metallurgy.

 

Currently the course is mainly in swedish but as we see a growing international interrest for this education we hope to offer the whole course in English shortly.
