12 June 2009: Over the past year, I have been having extended discussions with AGL clients in the wholesale and retail sectors of the trade, as well as industry organizations to evaluate the services of our laboratory. Some of these discussions have led to refinements in our reporting procedures (already implemented) and contributed to the complete redesign of our Prestige report, which was launched this past February during the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show.
With the recent independence and re-privatization of AGL, this process has continued and resulted in the publication of our first official price list. In it, we have refined and simplified our pricing structure to offer highly competitive rates for top-quality gemological reporting. We are also maintaining the innovative and very popular FastTrack services of GemBriefs, our lower cost alternative in a convenient credit card sized format.
