The long standing discussions on disclosure of lead glass-filled ruby that emerged after the Gemstone Industry & Laboratory Conference (GILC) held in Tucson earlier this year, members of GILC Ruby Committee have finally reached an agreement on the same.

The vote from GILC Ruby Committee members resulted in acceptance of disclosure for lead glass-filled ruby as, "Composite-Ruby, Glass-Filled, Requires Special Care". The aim of the Ruby Committee is to recommend disclosure language at the retail level which might not be the same disclosure standards required of gemstone traders. While composite ruby and glass-filled is properly used for disclosure language, the committee feels ‘special care required’ should be included when selling this material.

The subject of disclosure has been dealt with specific GILC committees and within GILC Inter-Committee; each has a discussion area on the recently launched GILC Forum at GILGForum.org. The GILC Ruby Committee is built of gemstone traders, laboratory experts, jewellery manufacturers and major retailers dedicated to creating common disclosure language for all levels of the trade. In another development at GILC, GILC Chairman Sushil Goyal announced the appointment of Bear Williams of Stone Group Labs as GILC Co-Chairman. Williams has been moderating the GILC Forum committee ruby discussions and will continue to cooperate with Goyal on directing GILC activities.
