The International Colored Gemstone Association's magazine, INColor, has an online edition. Interestingly, they seem to do an "Ethical Mining and Fair Trade" feature article every month - each on different subjects.  You can read the online editions here: http://gemstone.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&...

This week's issue of NOW had a really interesting article on the "environmental focus" of last meeting of the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada.  I thought it was especially interesting that the current vice-president of the org (and president-to-be) is also the chief of the Missanabie Cree First Nation and an executive with Noront Resources, a company active in the Ring of Fire in northern Ontario.  Read the entire story here:

I wanted to add K. Jill Peters' message to the public board! Here it is:

A message from K. Jill Peters to all members of Ethical Metalsmiths Group on Metal Arts Guild of Canada!

hi there!
i wonder if you've heard of wild fish gems? they're an ethically run company based out of sri lanka. another big plus is that all their gemstones are certified untreated - no heat, no radiation, etc... to date i have ordered two stones from them and have been very happy with both :) you can check them out at
thanks for starting this great group!

I watched this just the other day, it really is incredible what they were able to document.
Comment by Shoshana Farber on March 1, 2010 at 2:18pm
I am adding a link (see under Links, top category) to Ryan Taylor's documentary. Ryan recently opened the Fair Trade Jewellery company in Toronto. The documentary is a must-see and is truly inspiring.
