About me

My name is Mauro Pantò, I began in 1972 starting as a fossil amateur, studying Paleontology, Mineralogy and Geology, and finally Gemology.

I travelled in many countries, especially Asia and particularly Thailand. I have been living 4 years in Bangkok where I studied Gemology at AIGS ( Asian Institute of Gemological Science). I had a cutting factory and designed jewelry and cut stones for several years.

At the moment I cooperate with Rivista Gemmologica Italiana, where I write sometimes some articles and shoot some photos.

I live and work in Perugia, Italy.
