GIA Symposium Poster: for Gem Dealers who want to sell Mineral Specimens.

Last week I attended the 6th GIA Symposium, which was about research and business of gem materials. I mainly attended the research track, especially colored stone and pearl research. I also was able to attend the field trip to some Pala mines prior to the Symposium.

My poster, intended for gem dealers, explains what mineral collectors are looking for in a specimen. Some gem rough can be sold as mineral specimens, but the proper material must be recognized and marketed appropriately.

The images are from Rock Currier, and are copyrighted by him. These can also be found on the website.

Email me at if you would like a copy of the PDF file.
