An array of first-hand experiences of Bahrain’s rich pearling heritage will be on display at the Bahrain Institute for Pearls and Gemstones (DANAT) exhibition at the Kingdom of Bahrain Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai from 1st October to 30th November, 2021.
The interactive DANAT exhibition at Expo 2020 Dubai will host experiences including examining a variety of Bahraini natural pearls. DANAT’s gemmologists will demonstrate the latest, state-of-the-art machinery and techniques used for testing such as high-grade laboratory X-ray microradiography and X-ray fluorescence.
Visitors will be taken through the pearl testing journey with a pioneering video visualisation experience. The viewer will follow a pearl’s journey from the seabed to the laboratory.
“Our stand at Expo 2020 Dubai will emphasise DANAT’s position as the world’s most prominent laboratory for pearl testing,” said DANAT Chief Executive Officer, Mrs. Noora Jamsheer.
“DANAT has an expert team of highly qualified staff, some of whom will be present at the exhibition to explain how we test natural pearls and to demonstrate how we use our equipment using the latest technologies.”
