Presented by Timothy Morgan

Thursday, June 23 , 2022 ; 7:00P.M. (EST)

DCGIA May Meeting is IN-Person ONLY
Location: Woodrow Wilson Library; 6101 Knollwood Dr, Falls Church, VA 22041

Spinels have been mined, worked, and worn by humans for 1000s of years. Long confused with rubies and sapphires, they are now coming into their own. At our in-person regular June GIA meeting, Tim Morgan will talk about the stone-its gemological properties, its history, its lore, its value today. He will have show-and-tell examples to fondle & examine.

No Cover Charge for Attendees the meeting starts at 7:00 PM.

NOTE: While there will be no ZOOM connection we will post a video after the event.

    I am in need of help to sell my gemstone collection (collected over 25 plus years) most are faceted and I have original invoices with proof of origin.(As well as a wide variety of seclections) I must do this for medical reasons- as well as not one my 7 grand daughters share my passion. I also have a complete set of tools for identification (& proof therein). 2 microscopes, spectroscopes, et al) I know I’ve spent a fortune, yet I do not expect to get any where near the value. I have stones from A-Z precious & non-precious (all are precious to me). I also have premade settings…I had a business plan for home showings and it was profitable…until I could no longer control the slight tremors & other problems). I had to go on disability 1998 from my regular profession of consultant & broker for recyclables. I worked with both industrial companies as well as local & federal government setting guidelines for recycling. I worked both nationally & internationally throught marketing & advising certain Ambassadors . I also sat of several associations, as board member) I want to sell my entire collection as my family has no idea of value and would most likely throw them away/ WIth almost 1,000 stones that would be. such a waste ..Any advice (other than EBAY) is appreciated
