We have plenty of experience in buying and selling of faceting rough and fine cut stones and understand the quality, appeal factors, the importance of good cutting on a stone and how it adds value to the stone. All stones are ethically sourced. We set the standard in facet rough grading of gemstones. We are very well known by the miners in East Africa and get to see first hand, material, as it comes out of the mines in some cases within hours of it being mined. We speak local languages and work very well with local miners and understand their needs. We know almost all miners in East Africa and they know us. We have built relationships with them of trust and long-term supply and in many cases guide them in their mining activities. Since most are small aritisanal, community-based mining activities, most of the nearby villages and communities are involved in the mining and share in the profit for their communities upliftment and well being.
