This sad news comes by way of an email issued by Gary Roskin’s Roskin Gem News Report:
In a recent conversation with David Federman, Colored Stone Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, the magazine will soon be no more. David says this includes the print version, the on-line magazine, and the e-mail newsletters. It appeared as if the bi-weekly e-newsletter and on-line magazine were going to replace the print version, but obviously that was a wrong assumption on our part.
More on this as it becomes available. I was also saddened to hear about the death of colored stone mainstay Maurice Shire.
UPDATE: Colored Stone editor in chief David Federman, considered one of the best journalists in the field, talks about the magazine’s folding and his future plans here.
