Centre de Recherche Gemmologique

Le CRG est une association domiciliée à l'université de Nantes. Essentiellement, le CRG regroupe des anciens étudiants du programme de DUG. Cependant toute personne souhaitant soutenir les activités gemmologiques à Nantes est bienvenue dans notre association.

Le CRG a une vocation de carnet d'adresse pour faciliter la rencontre entre gemmologues ; il a aussi pour vocation de pallier à certaines lourdeurs administratives de l'université, en particulier pour l'achat de pierres ou de livres. Ces pierres servent soit à l'enseignement en DUG, soit à la recherche. On retrouve donc souvent des pierres CRG dans nos publications...
