During this meeting there will be a symposium on Gems and industrial minerals

Session 12. Gems and industrial minerals

Understanding where, when, how and why gem and industrial mineral deposits are formed is very important from more than a purely academic perspective. The genetic models provide guidelines for exploration, contribute to a conceptual understanding of the processes involved, and help forecast the location of undiscovered gem and mineral deposits and to develop new mineral processing theories. This session groups together presentations highlighting the geology, mineralogy and crystallography, geochemistry, tectonic and structural setting of gem deposits, including archaeogemmology, and industrial minerals (natural or synthetic) in order to respond to the new challenges in the industry and gemstone markets.

You are invited to submit an extended abstract (4 pages) by Saturday 28th February 2015
