A Faberge amethyst ring is to be raffled in London with the aim of raising £5,000 as part of a wider initiative to encourage more women to enter the mining profession. The special raffle will be held on December 2 and is organized by Women in Mining (UK), an organization dedicated to promoting and progressing the career development of women in mining and minerals. Money raised from the sale of the ring, which was donated by gemstone supplier Gemfields plc, will finance a scholarship for a female student on the MSc Mining Engineering course at the University of Exeter’s Penryn Campus, Cornwall, starting in September.
