Hunting for sapphires in Tasmania


With this new short GIA field expedition video you will discover some aspects of the GIA Field Expedition FE59 that took place in Dec 2014 and Jan 2015 in Tasmania (Australia) in order to mine some sapphires to be added to the GIA reference collection. It was a great occasion to practice our fossicking skills and get some practical knowledge about secondary sapphire deposits. Enjoy!.
