Gübelin Gemological Laboratory
Edward Gübelin was the pioneer of inclusion studies, a field which changed modern gemology completely. Gübelin’s son, Eduard J. Gübelin became a leading figure in the world of gemology, pioneering this new field of gemology as one of the world’s most renowned gemological specialists. Gübelin’s devotion to the study of gemstones and his work in gemstone inclusions resulted in great advances in the world of gemology. He traveled to many mine localities, created new gemological instruments, published continually and endeavored to promote gemology whenever possible.
