In 2000, Marc and Lily Sarosi generously gifted to the National Gem Collection a suite of 25 gemstones from Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia,Tanzania and Zambia, six of which are pictured here. This suite that included tourmalines, garnets, and an aquamarine provided an important upgrade to our holdings of African gems in the National Gem Collection.
