This building becomes available after you have learned the Chemistry 0 (Skill) skill.
Note: If a lab will be used for making explosives it should be built in a separate compound far from other buildings. The Explosives page has further details.

Install one each of the following:
Chemistry Labs require a level 1 upgrade to be able to install glassware.
Labs used to make Explosives do not need high quality glassware. A quality of 1 is sufficient.
Glassware of specific quality will allow for the lab to be calibrated. Calibrated labs give increased powdered gem yield, increased litmus strip solution, and require fewer essences per essential compound.
Calibration level 1 requires the glassware to have an average quality exactly divisible by 100 (rounded down), and an average quality above 7000.
For calibration level 2 the average quality of the glassware must be exactly 7000, rounded down. (The sum of the glassware quality must be between 35000 and 35004). It reduces the cost of an essential compound from 70 debens to 40 debens.
For calibration level 3 the average quality of the glassware must be exactly 8000 or 9000, rounded down. (The sum of the glassware quality must be between 40000 and 40004, or 45000 and 45004). It reduces the cost of an essential compound from 70 debens to 35 debens
It is STRONGLY recommended that if you are going to calibrate a lab, you calibrate it to level 3. The amount of time and resources saved for a level 3 lab vs a level 2 or level 1 lab is well worth the potential extra outlay costs.
You will not get any upgrade stuff back when you salvage an upgraded Chem Lab at salvage level 7.

You must have the gems in your inventory in order to see the option on the lab.
Powdered gem yield (and experience) is multiplied by (1 + the precise calibration level of the lab). At calibration 3 (maximum known), yields are multiplied by 4.
|Gem Size||Quantity Made|
|Cut Gem (Any Cut)||1|
The wooden pestle breaks after some number of powderings (around 25) and has to be replaced.
Note: A Gem Cutting Table installed with a Gem Shearing Chisel can turn any gem into an average of 3.5 (1-7) gems of the next smaller size. Breaking down bigger gems into small will yield more powder than powdering them directly. Be aware that fracturing and pulverizing only a single gem increases the probability of a lower (or higher) than average yield
For example, using 1 huge gem in a lab with calibration 3:
- 1 Huge * 7 * 4 = 28 gem powder
After fracturing and pulverizing (average yield):
- 1 huge * 3.5 = 3.5 large gems
- 3.5 * 3.5 = 12.25 med gems
- 12.25 * 3.5 = 42.87 small gems
- 42.87 * 4 = 171.5 gem powder
