A “Source to Sink” geological model guides exploration to locate deposits of Gemstones.
Gemstones from primary sources discovered in some volcanic bodies within the Kishon catchment, notably Diamond (D), Sapphire (C), Carmel Sapphire™ (C), Ruby (C), Moissanite (M) and Hibonite (H).
Gemstones are transported via the Kishon River from sources to a sink in the Mediterranean Sea.
The placer deposits in the sink are deeply buried and difficult to access.
The most accessible natural trap for the gemstones is in the Mid-Reach area of the Kishon Valley where the river is confined through the “Kishon Gap” to form a transient placer.
