We are thrilled to announce that Dr. George Rossman has invited the Gem & Mineral Council for a very special visit to Caltech. The event will be on July 18 from 2-4 pm. It will feature tours of Caltech’s wonderful mineral and gem exhibit and George’s state-of-the-art laboratories, where he conducts cutting-edge research on the causes of color in minerals and gems. Of course, the highlight of the afternoon will be a fascinating presentation by George on his latest research on “Color of Minerals”.
We will have light refreshments. No alcohol is permitted on the campus.
For any additional information about these events, please contact the Gem & Mineral Council at firstname.lastname@example.org or (213) 763-3326.
