Gem-A Conference 2015 boasts top international gemmologists


The Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A) has announced the programme of speakers for its upcoming annual international gemmological Conference 2015 incorporating the Federation of European Education in Gemmology’s (FEEG) International Symposium of Gemmology, taking place from 21-22 November at RIBA Venues, 66 Portland Place, in Marylebone, London.

Following the success of its Conference 2014, Gem-A has once again confirmed a raft of international gemmology experts tackling some of the most topical and contemporary gem related subjects – and promises to introduce attendees to the most current gemmological discussions, led by world experts in the field.

The programme currently includes names such as: Bill Larson, Jean Pierre Chalain, Ilario Adamo, Adolf Peretti, Paul Rustemeyer, Jorg Gellner, Andrew Cody, Grant Hamid, Martin Steinbach, Fabian Schmitz and Shane McClure – who will discuss topics ranging from gemstones and gem mining in San Diego County California, colour zones in tourmaline crystals, to the identification and provenance of demantoid garnet and natural and synthetic quartz.

Gem-A will be releasing a full timetabled programme of events in the coming weeks. For more information on what’s happening and when, download a copy of the Gem-A Conference Leaflet or visit the Gem-A Conference pages on the Gem-A website.
