Welcome [back] to the Roskin Gem News Report
7 Years Later

It has been seven years since the last Roskin Gem News Report (RGNR) was sent, and it feels good to be back!

One of the pleasures of publishing the Roskin Gem News was being able to share with you all of the gem news from around the globe!

This new edition of the RGNR has an upgrade worth noting. We have a Constant Contact Newsletter, which you are reading right now, that links directly to the RGNR online magazine website. Within the website are numerous menu items where you can choose what you want to read, everything newsworthy, or specific topics. The new RGNR has all the same subject matters as before, just in drop down tabs, with both original content as well as curated news, all designated and credited.

So here it is, the NEW Roskin Gem News Report Newsletter... and the Magazine (links provided)!
