    Dear Allan,

    I have just finished writing ‘The Handbook of Gemmology’ which will feature the photographs of Tino Hammid. I would love to use your photograph that shows the 6.40ct Strontium Titanate and I was wondering if you would grant me permission. If so, do you have a high res image of the grouping that shows the Strontium Titanate in at least 300Dpi.

    I will be happy to include your name and/or company in the acknowledgements section of the book.

    I am in Peru at the moment but I also live in Vancouver, B.C.

    I hope to hear from you.

    Hi Geoff – I’m just about to head away on vacation for a couple of weeks. I’d be pleased to give you permission to publish the photo with credits.

    I will get back to you in early March when I’m back.
