It will offer it's customers knowledge of the gem and mineral industry along with educational and entertaining film clips and short videos. Our goal is to have one of the largest and widest variety of inventory items on the internet with a continual supply of new items and news updates.

Gary Bowersox has been called "a modern-day Indiana Jones," but his adventures in Afghan cave-mining have posed real-life dangers.
....During his expeditions, Bowersox traveled for a month at a time by horseback, climbing narrow paths to mountain caves, at altitudes as high as 14,000 feet. Using grenades, dynamite, and even crowbars, he and his team of local miners uncovered more than $2 million in precious stones — emeralds, rubies and sapphires.- ABC Good Morning America: Fighting with Precious Stones 2011
