The company also markets gemstones and owns a state-of-the-art Lapidary in Abuja, Nigeria, equipped with the capacity to handle any gemstone faceting and polishing work for operators in the gemstones and jewellery market. Piramed Ventures is believed to be Africa’s largest and leading market place for gemstones.
