Federico Barlocher was born to be a gem-mineral collector and dealer.
From the age of 12 his interest and subsequent passion pushed him to travel to the more remote areas of our planet (Manmar,Pakistan Afghanistan, Vietnam, Tanzania etc…). His arrival in Myanmar 35 years ago increased a lot his interest and passion for minerals specimens, where his enthusiasm and passion, not to mention a great deal of effort, permitted him to establish himself as a crystal dealer.
Mogok, the gem mecca known to every gem collector around the world, quickly became one of his favorite place. Federico spent most of his time in this fabled source and got to experience many special moments in such a unique environment. This familiarity with the source has attracted the attention of the media, amongst countless other organizations/people globally, who have requested information about this surprisingly still relatively undiscovered place that is in fact the most famous and important source for gems and in the last years also for crystals .
Every year gem associations invite Federico to give presentations about his experiences in his quest for the gems and crystal he seeks around the world, especially those Myanmar,Pakistan,Afghanistan,Vietnam and all east Asia. This has resulted in him traveling to numerous countries in order to share his experiences at presentations via video and slides with gemologists and the trade of all nationalities. These are experiences he takes pleasure in practicing as they allow him to meet new people of all cultures and share the common bond that joins them altogether; gems and human emotions.
Federico’s experiences and travels have established him as a gem and crystal dealer who mainly specializes in the finest and most exclusive untreated Mogok Myanmar gems such as ruby, sapphire, spinel, peridot, and moonstone. He also deals in mineral specimens (gemstone crystals within/on matrix) from Myanmar,Pakistan ,Afghanistan and east Asia, as well as the famous and rare natural melo melo pearls from Southeast Asia.
