The world of colored gemstones is dominated by individual miners and artisans, each with a unique and powerful story to tell. Sharing the Rough is an award-winning film that explores the artisanal world of colored gemstones: from the hands of the East African miners who bring these treasures to the surface and the gem cutters who breathe life into the rough stone to the designers who accentuate the beauty of each gem through precious metals and innovative design. The film also documents the challenges of East Africa’s growing mining economy

Presented in collaboration with the American Gem Society and ALCHEMY 9•2•5
