Bill Larson, Pala Gems to Speak at Tucson

Pala International President Bill Larson will present a free seminar at next week’s AGTA GemFair in Tucson, entitled “Collectors of Gems and Minerals: How and Why.”

The presentation is targeted at the basic-to-intermediate level:
Collector Bill Larson follows a fine tradition of a few noteworthy gem and mineral collectors such as Dr. Edward Gubelin, Dr. Peter Bancroft, and John Sinkankas whose collections have informed the industry and who were themselves inspiration for, and mentors to, Larson. In this session Larson discusses the collector’s impulse, how to build your own gem and mineral collection, and reveals some of his holdings while appreciating the import of other gem and mineral collectors.

This presentation will make a great companion piece to Jason Stephenson’s “Collecting and Investing in World Class Gemstones” featured previously in Pala’s Gem News.

When: Saturday, February 7, 2009

Time: 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.

Where: AGTA GemFair, Maricopa Room, Tucson Convention Center
