The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has its world headquarters in Carlsbad, California. Established in 1931, it is the largest and most respected nonprofit institute of gemological research and learning in the world. With over 2,000 employees on 11 campuses and nine laboratories worldwide, the Institute’s scientists, diamond graders and educators are regarded, collectively, as the world’s foremost authority in gemology.

GIA is committed to teaching gemology to students of all ages of who discover a love of earth science and a desire to learn more about gemology. In 2002, in response to a growing need for quality science courses, GIA created a program to teach gemology, mineralogy and geology to students and youth groups across the country. It was designed to meet the needs of school districts and youth groups that want to augment their existing earth science programs.
