Press Release: Panjikar Gem Research & Tech Institute (PANGEMTECH), in Pune, held its second annual convocation on December 1, 2012. The chief guest at this occasion was a prominent consultant from Germany, Guenter Lorenz, owner of a company called “So!lutions,” which provides technical advice and consultancy services in various fields.

There were 11 students who received Basic Gemmology certificates, 10 students earned Advanced Gemmology, while 12 students qualified in Diamond Grading and eight students received the diploma certificate of Professional Gemmologist.

Speaking at the occasion, Lorenz told the graduating students that India has a rich culture and students should take advantage of this and create designs that showcase  India's culture.

“Blindly copying the western designs is like having mass produced item available in any mall or supermarket. Make use of the variety of colors and color combinations available in India that are rarely seen elsewhere,” Lorenz said. He stressed  the importance of time schedule. Do not work under time pressure, but once promised, deliver on time and as per design. Consistently recheck quality so that the client is more than satisfied, he advised.

The program began with a seminar organized by PAN-GEMS (Alumni Association) on Crystal Healing by Meghana Thite, an expert on crystal therapy. She enthralled the audience with simple techniques to relieve stress and to empower oneself. Using crystals such as rock crystal, rose quartz, amethyst and thite demonstrated how one can obtain energy from crystals and gemstones. Ailments can be cured much faster if the proper gemstone is used side by side with the prescribed medicine, as gemstones continuously emit positive radiation, which has an effect on the human body. Among the gemstones used for the healing were red garnet, aquamarine, citrine, carnelian, aventurine, lapis lazuli, rose- quartz, amethyst and clear rock crystal.

The crystal healing seminar was followed a detailed presentation by Jayshree Panjikar on synthetic chemical vapor deposition (CVD) diamonds. Students were shown synthetic CVD diamonds. It is now established that CVD synthetic diamonds are slowly flooding the market as the technology to produce the synthetic diamond has developed in leaps and bounds. Methane gas can be converted into synthetic diamond within few hours. One must remember that methane gas is a regular by-product of biogas plants and if the know-how is made available CVD synthetic diamonds could be produced in large quantity in India as well. Therefore gemologists have a challenging future ahead.
