A New Representative...
Welcome Daniil Gorbushin
- a very young 46 year-old grandfather - was born and lives in Cheliabinsk,
Russia - in the southern Ural Mountains. He loves mining
expeditions into the nearby Potaninmountains, where he
finds sapphire crystals (see the pictures - findings of a recent
expedition - Daniil writes that when the snows beak up, allowing
a return, he is headed back). Over the years, Daniil has
amassed a good collection of rough sapphires, ready for
faceting. He reports that he shares his love of gems- and
shares his gem findings - with a wide circle of friends.
Daniil says: 'My dream is to
remainder of my life
to gems and gem-cutting.'
