Want to immerse yourself in a new culture?
Thirsty for gemstone knowledge and experience of the local gem trade from mine to market?

Gemstone Tours with Gemstone Detective are escorted group tours to destinations where gemstones originate. We visit the leading sources of colour gemstones, in search of ruby, sapphire, emerald, jade, opal
