Gemological Science International (GSI) has launched a laboratory in Jaipur, aiming to tap into the Indian city’s rich heritage as a center for gemstones.

The new location will offer all of GSI’s core services, as well as a dedicated division specializing in the origins and identification of colored stones, the organization said Monday. The laboratory will feature advanced equipment and a team of professionals under the leadership of industry expert Meenu Vyas. It will also host educational programs.

“We are thrilled to continue GSI’s global expansion and open another laboratory in India,” said president and cofounder Debbie Azar. “The demand for GSI certification and origin testing for natural and lab-grown diamonds, as well as colored gemstones, continues to grow, and the Jaipur lab will help us meet that global need.”

GSI, founded in New York, already operates several laboratories in the Indian cities of Mumbai, Surat and Thrissur.
