People & Places: New Directions in East African Gemology with Richard Hughes

While the traditional mines of Burma and Sri Lanka continue to produce, much of the action in today's ruby and sapphire market is taking place in East Africa. In 2007, Richard Hughes completed a survey of corundum mines in Tanzania and will detail that country's mines and markets in this unique multimedia presentation.
