Join the Responsible Gemstone Buyer's Group

Zambia Initiative

Contact us to join the Responsible Gemstone Buyers Group (RGBG) and purchase rough gemstones directly from the Federation of Small Scale Mining Associations of Zambia (FESSMAZ).

Twenty percent (20%) of the proceeds are given back to the mining community through food drives that the Federation members will carry out. The Gemstones can be custom cut in Zambia by Inonge Zita, which employs women gem cutters. The image shown illustrates the quality material and cutting from this project. Citrine, Tourmaline, Garnet, Amethyst and Aquamarine are just some of the gems being offered.

We will be posting pictures of our first food drive soon. Every time the proceeds reach $300 or more we make a food drive happen!

The project is a collaboration between FESSMAZ, Agec Africa, The Nomad Jeweler, The Responsible Jewelry Transformative and Inonge Zita.
