hi, i have received an e-mail from one of my overseas gem
supplieres and he stated their is a change in us policy on blue
topaz due to the process by which they are radiated. i don’t deal
much in blue topaz but i am interested if any body else has any
on this policy shift.



I’m going to have to search, but I recently saw an article that
dealt with irradiated gem material. I’m sorry I don’t remember
exactly what it was about, but maybe someone else has seen it.
If I find it I’ll post back the info.
