Introducing.... A New Representative...

Sayed Adelshah Alawi

 We Welcome....Sayed Adelshah Alawi 


 ... Afghanistan


Sayed Adelshah Alawi is Ultra Tec's new representative in Afghanistan.  He is located in the capital city, Kabul.  Sayed is a businessman in Afghanistan, and an experienced Ultra Tec user himself.  With this interest, Sayed has been aware of the attention that the gem community has focused on Afghanistan, a result of the extensive gemstone  findings there. The very significant deposits of emerald, ruby, kunzite, tourmaline and aquamarine - and other gemstone materials - which in the past were smuggled into neighboring countries and sold as rough - now represent an outstanding opportunity for domestic development in Afghanistan, and, of course, a source of employment and livelihood for its people.    We welcome Sayed to the Ultra Tec team - and join him in supporting Afghanistan's rise in the gem world.
