About My Work
Founded in 2011, Thamani Gems works with artisanal and small scale miners to address the inequity of value within the gemstone industry in Kenya and East Africa through access to fair value markets and mineral knowledge.

Our objectives are to provide educational workshops on mineral knowledge (geology and gemmology), mineral rights policy and regulatory frameworks, sustainable mining practices and value addition. Provide a global online platform for marketing and selling gemstones and minerals as well as organising local events to provide fair value markets.
