Sadly, David Gibson died last week.

He was an enthusiastic gemologist and Forum participant with a passion for amber.
He had the insect Tonacatecutlius gibsoni named after his discovery of it in amber.
His personal site is still available here

Oh no, I'm really sorry to hear that. I didn't know him, but his posts were always a lot of fun and very informative. I will really miss him.

It would have been a shame to loose the information he has compiled over the years.
I've been given permission to take his site and host it through GemologyOnline.
Working on it now.
