Learn more about how to choose the right gem during the ‘Thailand: Gemstones Heaven—Introduction to Gemology’ conference at Alliance Francaise Bangkok on Thursday at 7.30pm.
From pigeon-blood rubies to Kashmir sapphires, gems stimulate fantasy and evoke mystery. But there are traps to avoid and tips to learn when purchasing gemstones.
To help you out, Alliance Francaise Bangkok is holding a conference called ``Thailand: Gemstones Heaven _ Introduction to Gemology''. It will be conducted in English by Dr Laurent Massi, a physicist, gemologist and director of the GIA Thailand Gemological School (Gemological Institute of America) in Bangkok.
Dr Massi has taught gemology and given conferences on precious stones throughout the world. Besides his many publications, he has travelled to several mining areas to collect samples and data for his teaching activities.
The lecture will take place at the auditorium of Alliance Francaise Bangkok on Sathon Road on Thursday at 7.30pm. Tickets cost 200 baht (150 baht for members and students) and are available from its Media Library.
