Tired of being stuck at home? Pack your bags and come with us on a whistle-stop tour around the world.
After two years of travel and writing, Kim Rix (a.k.a. the Gemstone Detective) has built up quite an expertise on how tourists encounter the gem trade.
She has published six books: Sri Lanka, Thailand, Australia, Worldwide, India and USA, with a seventh on Myanmar (Burma) going to press soon and the eighth (Great Britain) already in progress.
Kim will share her travel experiences, highlighting the fascinating gemstones she has encountered, the people she has met along the way and some of the sneaky tricks some unscrupulous dealers play on tourists, as well as teaching us how to educate ourselves with first-hand knowledge in the field.
