Welcome to My Non-Commercial Website

I am running WildFishGems.com for a couple of years now; and I have always thought that writing about mining countries and the wildly unregulated gem trade is great fun.

However, my commercial site was getting too small for all those topics, and I didn’t want to distract my clients from buying gems in the first place. So, with the aid of Audra, my online editor & angel in the US, we started this site. 

How to judge sapphires or rubies and other practical issues around the gem business will continue to be published on WildFishGems.com.


Here, I will share the stuff a gem trader gets to see in the remote parts of this world, I will foul my own trade and also bash east and west for ignorance and laziness wherever I can.


This said, I do think we live in a wonderful world.
