November 1, 2017 - Optical Phenomena in Gemstones

This November - David Horste Blinded by the Light Optical Phenomena in Gemstones


Presenting David Horste
Pearl Update: New Types, Fakes, Treatments & Jewelry Styles

Wednesday November 1, 2017 - 7PM until 9:30PM
in the Rotunda Room at the Veterans Memorial Building

From opals to sunstones, and labradorite to pearls, the light that makes our world visible can play all sorts of beautiful magic tricks when it interacts with certain gemstones in phenomenal ways. In this lecture David Horste will cover the wide variety of optical phenomena that make some gemstone jump out at us in flashy, glittery, lustrous, shimmering, and mysterious ways. If you ever wanted to know why certain gems will show a star or cats eye and why others flash with different colors, this lecture will cover it all! In addition to his fun-filled informational presentation, David will have many physical samples of gemstones that exhibit optical phenomena available for examination...

The Bead Society monthly meetings feature illustrated lectures by an authority on beads or related subjects. Meetings start with a social hour and refreshments.

This is a great opportunity to meet with like-minded bead enthusiasts, collectors, bead-makers and share their knowledge. This is your bead society and everyone has the opportunity to learn something from others.
