Our Supporter & Sponsors

Companies and individuals have generously donated to the Department of Biological Sciences and Geology.  Direct donations have helped our Gems and Semiprecious Stones course to get off to a good start.

We are particularly grateful to:

Tairus Created Gemstones and Walter Barshai


Bruce Naples, Director of the Academic Computing Center, Queensborough Community College


Mel Belsky of Howard Minerals
Mr. Belsky donated a beautiful example of native gold and gave us a discount on cubic zirconium and zoisite with ruby.  Mel and his wife, Charlotte, have also made a wonderful contribution to Brooklyn College's Geology Department (if you're in the neighborhood, it is well worth a trip over to see this collection displayed in their main office).  Thank you, Mel and Charlotte!
