The brand new edition of Gemology has now started shipping with orders. Our quarterly customer magazine is bursting with interviews and features on gemstones, jewelry and more. The Spring 2018 edition (yay - it's almost spring!) features a long overdue catch-up with our co-founder Steve Bennett. We also chat with the wonderful Lynn Jinks as she returns to Gemporia after her maternity leave, and find out how she and husband Rod have been taking to parenthood. We take a look at some famous - or should that be infamous - gemstones that are purported to be cursed, and the intriguing events they've been linked with down the years. Also, we explored which gemstone can be sourced in the UK, and where you can find them for yourself. Hidden treasure may just be round the corner from your home! We're also throwing the doors open on our fabulous Jewelry Design competition, so if you've always wanted to create your own piece and see it made, get thinking and get drawing. All this and a discount code too, just to say thank you for collecting gemstones and jewelry with Gemporia. You'll receive your free copy with your first order this quarter (during February, March and April, while stocks last) but if you'd like to order more copies, just click here.
