Handbook of Gemmology

Handbook of Gemmology

Handbook of Gemmology

I recall the day I first spoke to Geoffrey Dominy.

It was about 18 months ago.

If my memory serves me right, my initial call was an introductory call, so yes, I was talking about Sirius Star®…the world’s brightest diamond®. Needless to say, after a very brief chat we dove right into diamond cutting, polishing, photography and gemmology. What really impressed me first and foremost was his incredible knowledge and immediately placed him in the Crystallized Carbon League (the company of individuals such as my father, Peter Yantzer, Jason Quick, Mel Moss etc)

What impresses me most is his passion.

Every call, every email.

Passion. Infectious passion.

Geoff shared a little about his exciting new project “The Handbook of Gemmology”, and the identified need for a complete mobile resource for gemmologists, appraisers, students and any jewellery sales professional. I was intrigued and we were honored when Geoff asked us to edit his section on diamond cutting and polishing. Judging be the detail submitted we quickly realized that this would become the new reference standard for gemmology, and identified the unique opportunity for ourselves to support this uniquely Canadian initiative.

Earlier this week I received a box from Geoff with some of the first copies. The installation on my Windows PC took to less than a minute. The ePub version on my iPad took a little longer but I’ll admit that this was my first ePub install and once I’d figured out to sync it via iTunes I was set.

The “Handbook of Gemmology” has exceeded all our expectations and drags the dusty manuals into the 21st Century.

In weeks to come, we will feature insights from the rest of the team here at Master Diamond Cutters and some feedback from our fellow AGS members.
