You are probably familiar with the ‘925’ stamp on your silver jewellery, and what ‘14k’ or ‘18k’ means on your gold. 
Today I will tell you about who can make those marks and what else might be stamped on jewellery,
such as the ‘Fairmined ECO’ mark on the most ethically sourced gold I could find, which assures

• Guaranteed minimum price for workers
• Better trade relationships
• Safe working conditions
• Small-scale operations with minimal
environmental impact
• No use of toxic chemicals such
as mercury
• Purely mechanical extraction
• No link to conflict zones
• Rehabilitation of native ecosystem

It is truly #GoldToBeProudOf 
If you are a goldsmith, consider getting a Fairmined License and joining the fight for better gold ✨

Coming to you from my studio today, I go over some very basics about garnets: how these closely-related minerals form a family of gems.

Garnets come in all kinds of colours, and have a various hardnesses and Refractive Indices. 

The basic garnet families are, 
for the orange to red ones (the aluminum family of garnets)
 - Almandine
 - Pyrope
 - Spessartine/Spessartite

and for the yellow to green ones
(the calcium family of garnets)
 - Grossular (i.e. Tsavorite)
 - Andradite (i.e. Demantoid)
