The Identifying Gemstone Treatments Seminar and the Identifying Diamond Treatments Seminar will both be presentations and hands-on lab led by GIA instructors.

GIA Museum Exhibits on “Striking Gold!” will unfold at AGTA GemFair, and GIA Library Exhibit will feature some of its most venerated books in mineralogy and gemology at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. “Providing Access in a Digital World” will give insights into the library’s recent digitization project.
