It is with great sadness I'd like to announce Dr. Hanneman passed away on December 12, 2020. His legacy will live on forever!

THERE'S A SECOND FLOOR?!?!?!?


Curse you Roger! Arya is years away from getting the secret of the 2nd Floor!
Well I've never been known to let a quick moment of comedy slip away just because it's a newbie asking the question :lol: :lol:

Roger, why are the dates so late into the show? Most of the shows that are selling rough start the weekend before. So unless one plans on spending 7 days in Tucson, it's either come early for the rough, or late for these gatherings.
Hi Gene,
Thank you for the question and suggestions. I've only been around the trade for a few years, so my aim may be off a little... but it has been my experience that most gem cutters take their rough buying very seriously. So, if we introduce the seminars earlier, when the optimum time to acquire the finest rough is available, it may create another conflict. The conflict of - do I buy rough now since I know the Afghani in Pueblo room 201 still has a few really fine pieces or Tourmaline, or, rush over to the seminar and pick up a new technique.

It is my contention the rough will win over every time.

*I am open to anyone taking over the seminar program. It is a volunteer position with no particular benefits that I know of. And then they could adjust or change it into anything they want, and whenever they want.


I wouldn't want to stop on your toes by taking this over Roger. Winston may have a different thought about stepping on toes however!

Hi all,
For those interested in knowing a little about the 2014 Tucson seminars, yes, it is happening, and there are some plans in the works. I will be more forthcoming mid-summer.

I believe the concave or fantasy cutters should be very pleased!
