                        Purple Diamonds:

A Deep Dive

presented by


Tom Gelb, Gelb Gemological Consulting

Join Tom Gelb G.G. (GIA), MBA (Columbia) for a thorough tour into one of the rarest and least understood fancy color diamonds. Purple diamonds are in a class all their own, with unique properties that make them true gemological oddities. There is much confusion about these gems, from the mines that produce them, their cause of color, the range of color appearance, and their difference from violet diamonds. Let Tom guide you through all of these issues and lead you to a greater appreciation for the fantastic gems.
