Our dear friend, Gary Bowersox, will be visiting us this week!
His work for the past 45+ years with miners, cutters, and designers has allowed him to create a stunning collection of rough and polished gemstones, mineral specimens, and finished pieces that can be described as nothing less than works of art.
His time in all aspects of the gem and jewelry industry has given him an intimate knowledge of gemstones and the people who love and work with them. These precious insights are shared in his two books, The Gem Hunter and Gemstones of Afghanistan (which can be autographed at our event!). He has also shared his wealth of knowledge in lectures around the world, and soon will be joining us to answer your questions and curiosities, sharing tales of his adventures.
Gary has also done extensive philanthropic work including giving free eyeglasses and school supplies to the people of Afghanistan. His collection is all fair trade, and supports the local people of Afghanistan, Vietnam, Tajikistan, Bolivia, Brazil, Madagascar, Zambia, Thailand, Burma, and more!
