Dear friends

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new web site with support  
from the Tiffany &Co. Foundation on gems and the environment.

The web site address is: http://www.gemecology.org

or http://www.uvm.edu/envnr/gemecology/index.html

Our team has also prepared three reports on gemstone mining in  
Burma/Myanmar, Brazil and Madagascar which are available for download  
from the site as well as our video on emerald mining in Brazil.

Comments and new content welcome. We would like this to be a widely  
accessible resource for researchers and practitioners.

Warm regards
