ICA's Gemstone Industry & Laboratory Conference (GILC) was to take place on Monday January 31st, 2021 in Tucson Arizona during the largest gathering of gem & minerals shows in the world - the Tucson gem and minerals shows.
The topic of the conference was to be Low Temperature Heat Treatment of Corundum.
But due to pandemic related concerns, the GILC Tucson 2022 has been cancelled. We will look forward to seeing you all in 2023.
For over two decades, the GILC, organized by the International Colored Gemstone Association, and supported by AGTA, has provided a space for industry peers to discuss worldwide gemstone issues like ethical practices, nomenclature, consumer confidence, terminology and accurate use of professional gem laboratories.
The GILC is an invitation only event. All active ICA members are invited but must RSVP as space is very limited.
