We are a family of four and scheduled a 1/2 day workshop. Alice presented the museum, categories of gems, then explained how to identify the various gems with different techniques that we got to experiment.
We also bought some very nice jewelry and raw gems in the store. The workshop is a bit expensive for a family of four but worth it as it is quite unique. The jewelry is affordable and beautiful and we are very happy with our purchases.
Overall a great experience that i highly recommend ... we were very happy with the quality of the services, which is not always guaranteed in Siem Reap.

My wife and I took a 3 hour session with Jean-Philippe which was very beneficial and informative. For us it was very good learning relating to basic gemoligical identification and classification. For anyone with an interest, Jean- Philippe has the skills and knowledge to address your level of increased knowledge. I would highly recommend.

I got a very interesting visit and learn a lot about the different varieties of gems.
I did not know about the different stones and gems in Cambodia. Nice things to do besides the temple.

Dear Benji, Thank you very much for your review. Indeed, few people know that Cambodia is one of the Asian countries with the most variety of precious and semi-precious stones. We are glad to be able to show the hidden treasures of Cambodia to all our visitors. We hope you will come to visit us again. We always have new gemstones and our collection is growing every day.

My husband and son spent 3 hours in the company of the highly knowledgeable but very interesting Professor Jean-Philippe Lepage who introduced them to the world of gemstones and the science behind their identification and grading and classification.How to identify synthetic,treated and natural gemstones.He made the session a highly enjoyable time and as a result for anyone who wants to build their basic knowlege of gemstones and have a break from the touring AngkorWat to try something different. Highly recommend.

I learned so much from this workshop and would highly recommend this to those who are interested in jewelry and knowing more about gems and the science behind the types of gems. I was taught how to distinguish natural VS synthetic stones with my naked eye and using tools like a UV light pen, eye magnifying glass and a microscope. Philippe was very knowledgeable about all stones and answered so many of my questions! He explains technical things simply using paper and pen to illustrate and lets you experience first-hand how to evaluate a strone using lab tools. In the end of the course, they will give you a certificate too. I had an awesome time and will definitely carry this knowledge with me next time I shop for gems and jewelry!
