And if they are unfamiliar with the organization, you can add that the AGTA is an association of United States and Canadian natural and colored gemstone and cultured freshwater pearl industry professionals dedicated to promoting the natural colored gemstone trade.
As a member of the AGTA, Fire Mountain Gems and Beads abides by the AGTA's Code of Ethics, which is an even higher standard than the Federal Trade Commission's Guides for the Jewelry Industry on disclosing colored gemstone enhancements.
It may also help to have a copy of "The Gemstone Information Manual by the American Gem Trade Association" written by the AGTA handy.
