(‘A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File’ (p. 5) In 1975 an extraordinary document surfaced called “A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File.” Distributed hand-to-hand long before the advent of computer-based social media, the 22-page typed copy I received in 1976 had been reproduced so many times that several words and letters were unclear or missing.

Bruce Roberts and Carmen Miranda from magazine photo, ca. 1952:

Note: Author Gerald Carroll discovered this photo in the archives of the San Francisco Examiner in 1989. Stephanie Caruana assured me this was the same Bruce Roberts she knew in San Francisco. It shows not only that Bruce Roberts existed but that he had knowledge and interest concerning artificial gems. SH
