The Certified gemologist.
Muhammd Ali Aqeel Abbas
Stones have been a center of attraction for me since my childhood;rings,pendants,braclets etc were more attractive for me than a choclates than after Inter I got to know a facetter in my area and I got there to learn facetting. It was a turning point of my life.I got what I was searching for,Gradually I started my online business on Facebook with cash on delivery service nation wide and got a warm welcome. Then I started attending gems exhibitions regularly,went to several mines in northern areas of Pakistan After 1 year of work I decided to visit Thailand to meet my hunger of Gems. There I went to GTC and Chantaburi market and bought gems in bulk. In Thailand I also visited Kachnaburi Sapphire mine and meet a GIA gemologist CHRISTINA herden(a very close friend of mine) She told me about her journey from a pharmaceutical employee to GEMOLOGIST. I got a click right there I want the Word GEMOLOGIST as a prefix to my name. I came back to Pakistan and Paid a visit Gilgit,hunza,skardu,chilass for whole selling of the stuff I bought from Thailand but that was not a good experience for me as shop keepers were mostly asking for debit and that was against my polices but the good thing was "I got to visit alot of new places and mines,got direct links with miners of peridot,spinel,ruby,tourmaline etc. Then I got back to the dream of GEMOLOGIST and Got myself enrolled in PGJDC Lahore for Gemology,I moved to Lahore and spent 6 months there learning the art of gems identification through proper scientific methodologies,I converted my Information to knowledge as I purified and separated the myths from realities. Going to class was the most fun thing for me and i was the guy with the highest marks in the class and boom atlast I became GEMOLOGIST.
