Garnets can be confusing, complex and the science behind isomorphous series is confounding for many. How can we make it easier to understand? Why by drinking 6 different wines of course! 

Starting with the sparkling Grossular Garnets and a pleasing glass of Crémant, and working our way through to the rich Purple Almandine paired with a robust and jammy Malbec, we’ll explain why both the Garnets and the Wines come in different varieties and what their features are. 

Join Sam Lloyd; fellow Oenophile (fancy name for wine lover) and all round fantastic gemmologist , and me, Kerry Gregory; Head of Shiny Stuff at Gemmology Rocks and for an afternoon of wine and gemmology.

A range of Garnets will be available for you to handle and observe, bread and cheese will be provided to mop up some of the wine (we don’t want anyone falling of their chair!). As well as witty banter, excellent education, amazing French Patisseries, decent tea and coffee and soft drinks should you so desire, all part of your ticket cost. We suggest you get public transport or a lift for this one!.

These afternoons, are informal, fun, educational and a brilliant way to meet new people in the industry.
