The Secret World of Ruby & Sapphire by Lotus Gemology's Richard Hughes
In the world of mineral collecting, among the most difficult species to collect are ruby & sapphire, because most of the promising specimens are cut for use in jewelry. Richard Hughes will take the audience around the world to the major sources of ruby and sapphire. From Myanmar to Sri Lanka and elsewhere, he will draw back the cloak that shrouds collecting fine corundum specimens, showing the links between this mineral and human history and the links between ruby & sapphire and life itself.
