“Diamonds : Myths and Misconceptions”
Open to the public, all are welcome
This program was originally given at the Rochester Symposium by the well known mineral dealer, John Betts. The talk covers many topics: the structure of diamonds, the geology of their formation and their many crystal forms. He also talks about uncut diamonds as mineral specimens and their use in jewelry, the diamond mining industry and the diamond cutting business.
