Misconception about gemstones

 There  is a wrong belief about gemstones, to the point that many people are  afraid to do gemstone business or learn about gemstone. We will be  looking for some reasons why is it so.   

Powers of darkness

Many  have connected the gemstone business with the powers of darkness. Many  have been forced to believe that for one to do the gemstone business  successfully, one must do some rituals to appease some spirits. Some who  own mines have been made to believe that, for the mine to produce they  must sacrifice to some spirits. And if you take a closer look, you will  discover these rituals and sacrifices are not that fundamental. Just  follow the principals to get the business done profitably


If  a mine collapse, check if the safety regulatory protocol was followed  during the mining process. If you use equipment either of poor quality  or less effective, be rest assured the digging will take a long time  before you get any minerals, or the tunnel has gone a long distance.


Also  if you dig for a long time without getting anything, it is very  possible you have missed the rock targeted. We have discovered that,  here in Tanzania foreigners come to do mining business and getting  gemstones without even using the powers of darkness (rituals and  sacrifices) one thing you will note about these foreign miners is, they  come with modern equipment and good experts in the mining industry. 


Simply  because gemstones are mined from underground, so some people conclude  that they are demonic. Let me ask about petroleum products such as  diesel or petrol we use in our cars, are they demonic? because they  extract petrol under the sea thousands of meters below sea level, yet we  use it in our cars unquestionable. Therefore gemstone is just as good  as any other product; the best we can do is to learn about it.

Fear of Frauds & Swindling

Many believe that gemstone business is full of Fraud and Swindling, in either selling or buying. Now the issue of Fraud & Swindling  is found in many areas of business not in gemstones only, and I can’t  deny the fact that it does exist. What is important is that get enough  information about the gemstone business, as well as the gemstones  products. 

Not every red stone is a ruby, not every blue stone from Umba  is a blue sapphire. It could be a blue scapolite or lolite.    Get the  knowledge of gemstone and the use of proper tools for identification or  you can use a professional to help you, they could be a dealers, lab  technicians, and gemologists.

Fear of Robbery

Some  have been made to believe that once you have the gemstones at home, you  can be invaded with armed robbers. These concepts are irrelevant when  it comes to business. What you are supposed to do is to take necessary  security measures in order to avoid attracting thieves and robbers. And  during business transactions just take all the precautions necessary.


In finishing, I  would like to say that the three misconceptions I have mentioned are  irrelevant. These gemstones are the same that God created in the times  of Adam, they have not changed. Look around you, are there gemstones? go  and learn from those who have succeeded in this business, how did they  do it to reach where they are today.
