Just Gems : Talk on Monday 18th September

  • Talks

Would you like to get your hands on some sparklers? Then come and join us at Knowle Village Hall at 7.30pm on Monday 18th September when our speaker, renowned gemologist, Helen Plumb, will bring along some examples of precious stones and give an expert talk on the subject.
This talk will explain what it takes for minerals to form desirable gemstones. and introduce around 90 gemstone varieties of which many are far more valuable than the traditionally ‘precious’ ones, e.g. ruby, sapphire, diamond and emerald.
We are promised facts about gems which will intrigue and surprise from someone at the heart of the jewellery business. 
Helen will bring her gems but you can too, if you have some that could do with  identification. All are welcome.
