In  this article I am not talking about religion, whether you are a  Christian or a Muslim or a Hindu or any other religion. All I want you  to know is, is there any relationship between gemstones and powers of  darkness? and I will use one religious book for clarification.


The  people that I want to address including Gem dealers, Gem brokers and  Miners, is it a must to do some rituals before start your business?


Most  of them have been taught or instructed to do some rituals in order to  get gemstones from the mine. If you ask them this is what they will tell  “sometimes the mine collapses so we need to do these rituals so that  the mine will not collapse during the mining operations. With such a  case what is needed is to observe all the safety requirements for the  mine not to collapse.

Some  will say “we must do the rituals so that we get the gemstones early  enough without taking much time and much digging.” Some have been made  to believe because gemstones come from the ground they are demonic. This  one too needs a technical procedure with proper instruments to where to  actually go. But let me ask you a question, how come fuel that is  petrol or diesel is also extracted from the ground are they also  demonic?


   If you  can look for a bible and read the below verse of scripture you will  notice different types of gemstones have been mentioned. 

Ezek  28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone  [was] thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the  onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and  gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in  thee in the day that thou wast created. (KJV)

   Remember  gemstones have nothing to do with the powers of darkness, but all you  need is proper mining equipment and follow safety procedures.

Is it possible to do gem business with integrity?

The  answer is yes. Let us start by looking what does the word integrity  means? Integrity means, to do business in honest, loyalty, truth, and  transparency without cheating or lying. Today there is a lot of cheating  in gem business especially in Africa, and causing the gem business to  be difficult especially when you do “on line business”.

   Many  have the money and they want to buy gemstones, but the problem is a  trustworthy person on the selling side. Will they be able to sell what  the display on the website? This is where the issue of integrity comes  in. if you are doing online gem business you must operate on integrity  for your business to grow. If you are loyal once you get an order, make  sure your customer gets the correct material on time, this will make the  customer to trust you and order more gemstones.

Avoid the following

1. Do not cheat your customer through falsehood

Make  sure you tell the customer the truth about your products, if you are  selling synthetic gems say so. If you are selling a pink tourmaline say  it is a pink tourmaline and not pink spinel or sapphire simply because  are sold easily.

2. Do not change figures

The problem of changing figures is  sometimes end to end problem, both the seller and the buyer.  Both  parties can agree to change figures for the sake of dodging taxes, the  one that is being cheated here is called the Government. Let me give you  a little illustration, in your website you are displaying item MGE 7 is  US$ 10,000/=. After the bargaining you agree to sell for US$ 8,000/=,  and the buyer asks you to write an invoice of US$ 2,000/= for him to pay  little import duty.

Both  the seller and the buyer have cheated your governments by reducing the  actual price to dodge tax, the seller loyalty fee of US$ 8000 not US$  2000 and the buyer the import duty of US$ 2000 instead of US$ 8000/.   

It  is possible some Government Mine Officer can overcharge you instead of  US$ 8,000/ you are charged US$12,000/ as loyalties, all I can say is  make sure you are clean on your side.

3. Do not cheat the Government

Make sure you run your business in a  correct and transparent way. If you are doing any kind of cheating, stop  it. Note that the government is a silent partner in your business, if  the government will not offer you the export permit you won’t export  your goods.

4. Do not cheat your shareholders and stakeholders

Make sure you give a correct information to revenue authorities, gem laboratory, courier. Please provide a correct “Gem Report”.

The  issue of integrity does not need over emphasizing, but with it you can  make your gem business run in loyalty and eventually grow to billions.
