On the heels of our report on the Lab Report Fantasy, I will tell you that the ISG was once again vilified for not following what is referred to as “proper scientific procedure” recently by a small group of “jewelry-scientists” on the industry’s largest commercial internet destination. What was most interesting about this episode is that the group was more concerned about the proper use of terms like, “procedures” rather than “protocols,” than they were with the issue of multi-million dollar fraud schemes perpetrated on consumers by certain members of the colored gemstone industry. The bottom line, however, was that while the ISG was correct in our research findings on a number of undisclosed gemstone treatments, we needed to once again be publicly spanked for not using what was termed as “proper scientific procedure”.
