Join Scott as he spends an entire day taking you to his favorite gem rough buying haunts. This tour is for both new and experienced faceters looking to broaden their supplier base. Get introduced to his suppliers, learn what to look for and how to look for it, and get answers (maybe!) to any questions you may have. You will have an opportunity to purchase rough from the dealers during the tour. If you are interested in both low- and high-end rough this is for you. And it doesn’t matter if you bring $100 or $100,000 to spend, you could be broke by the end of the day!
