GIA Shares Latest Research in New Lecture Series

GIA presents a dynamic and informative series of talks, “GIA New YorkScience Talks Series,” where GIA researchers will share ground-breaking discoveries related to gemology – including natural diamond formation, what diamonds tell us about Earth’s deep mantle, laboratory-grown diamonds and more. The quarterly talks are free and open to the public.

“GIA New York Science Talks Series” gives guests the opportunity to learn about cutting edge developments in gemological research and ask questions of leading researchers. The hour-long evening sessions begin at 5:00 p.m. at GIA’s education campus on the 8th floor of the International Gem Tower at 50 W 47th Street, New York, NY 10036. Refreshments will be served.

Four initial sessions are planned. The dates and topics are subject to change:
· October 30, 2019: GIA Research Scientist Dr. Evan Smith shares his breakthrough research on remarkably large, high-clarity diamonds and what they reveal about Earth’s geology.
· February 19, 2020: GIA Research Scientist Dr. Karen Smit will present research on what natural diamonds indicate about continent formation.
· May 2020: GIA Research Scientist Dr. Chunhui Zhou uncovers what oxygen isotopes in pearls tell us about paleoclimate.
· August 2020: GIA Postdoctoral Research Associate Dr. Chloe Peaker talks about transition metals causing gemstone and diamond color.

“With research being the foundation of GIA’s expertise and activities – including laboratory services, education and instrumentation – we are delighted to offer these informal and informative talks at our campus on 47th Street to give the public, students and members of the trade a chance to hear first-hand about GIA’s discoveries and the mission of our research,” said Tom Moses, GIA executive vice president and chief laboratory and research officer.

GIA leads the industry in gemological research by coupling advanced research with the detailed examination of tens of thousands of diamonds and colored stones that come through the laboratory each year. GIA research aims at responding to rapidly changing gem treatments and new gem materials, as well as deepening the world’s understanding of gemology.
