    Dear forum members & pearl family:
    After 2020 and the intense world of Zoom/Skype/Teams/Meet meetings and webinars, I believe it is only fair if we have a place to SHARE news about such digital events.

    So, if you hear of an interesting pearl, jewelry, or gem related event, this is the thread to use. Please feel totally free to share here

      Hello again! Just got informed about another GIA Webinar...this one is about X-RAYS:
      X-Rays and Their Use in Gemology
      Thursday, April 15 at 10:00 a.m. PDT

      Did you know that X-rays not only reveal bones but have applications in gemology as well? X-rays are used to separate natural pearls from cultured ones and to assist in the origin determination of some gems. This technique is unique in that it can be used on opaque as well as transparent gems and is crucial to some aspects of gem identification. Find out more about X-rays with Nick Sturman, Consultant to GIA, in this latest GIA Knowledge Session.

      Speaker: Nick Sturman, Consultant to GIA

        And it is July and GIA has another interesting webinar coming up this week!
        Gemstones from the Sea
        Thursday, July 8 at 10:00 a.m. PDT



        Marine treasures such as shells, pearls, and corals have been valued by humankind since antiquity. These biogenic gems are produced by marine organisms and possess mineral compositions similar to one another. What is the earliest evidence of human use of these materials? What mollusk species commonly produce pearls? What is precious coral and what are its major sources? What other biogenic gem materials can be found in our oceans? Dive deep into the source and science of these gemstones with GIA Senior Manager of Pearl Identification Dr. Chunhui Zhou.

        UPDATE: Well, the webinar took place and the video is now available for all to see.
