The Brazilian Connection was established in 1991. The proprietor, Dennis Snyder, specializes in the importation of precious gemstones from Brazil and other corners of the world. Some of our acquired inside information is invaluable on our gemstone acquisition trips to the interior of Minas Gerais. Although Brazil is the source of the majority of the gems that we sell, many come from other remote locations of the world, Tanzania, India, Australia, Russia, Pakistan and Madagascar are locations worthy of mention.
