Gems from Life from flies of elephants by Maggie Campbell Pedersen

Wednesday, 18 September 2019 - 10:30am

Gems from Life from flies of elephants by Maggie Campbell Pedersen

A richly illustrated lecture introducing you to organic gem materials their uses and origins. Amber, horn, tortoiseshell, ivory, pearl, shell and coral, have all been used for many thousands of years as adornment – in the form of jewellery, and for decorating our surroundings as carvings and furniture inlay. From current trade bans to spotting fakes, this talk is an absolute gem!

Non-Members welcome, £6.00.  The lectures are one hour long, but leave extra time for announcements etc. Lectures are at 10.30 am and 2pm
