Special note: to see a selection of my gem photos,

 go to Google images, type Roger Weller then any gemstone
name.   (Example: Roger Weller emerald)


Special thanks goes to
Gem and Lapidary Wholesalers, Inc. (G&LW)
and their associated gem dealers for allowing photography of
their gemstones. Without the assistance of G&LW, this collection
of gem photographs would have not been possible.
