IAC22 GJ - Appraising Nature’s Artwork: Minerals and Gems

Back to Package

Session Description

Mineral collecting is an age-old practice and requires understanding of geology as a science. Until the end of 20th century it was exclusively done for research and curiosity. Globalization and broadened interest for unusual items have led to an increase in the number of serious mineral collectors. Natural mineral and gem materials are highly collectable, yet their value determinants can be complicated to understand. Considering these materials are also too frequently encountered in the context of investment fraud, an independent specialist should be consulted for them, especially for large and rare examples. The speaker will probe the subject from the appraisal perspective.
