A listing of some of the venues/groups where Lotus Gemology's expert gemologists have delivered lectures in the past…

Traveling to scores of countries in search of precious stones, Lotus Gemology gemologists have authored a number of books and more than 160 articles on all aspects of the gem and jewelry trades. As a result, they are in great demand as speakers. Over the past forty years, Lotus Gemology gemologists have given more than 100 presentations around the world.
