Just back from the first day. Utterly exhausted but happy - spent the whole day in my favourite Aladdins's cave ( apart from Crystal Heart ) Just a tempting foretaste now as they won't be landed and uploaded for a few weeks. But - STAR GARNET ! Wow Such a rare stone I bought as much as I could. Watermelon Tourmalines - perfect ! Green outside and pinky red inside. So hard to get these for the last 5 or 6 years. Raw Rubellite - yum ! Really gemmy pink Tourmaline clusters. The list goes on but these are the absolute stand outs. I almost feel I want to cancel my holiday so I can get back and play with them ASAP :-)

    Hi Barbara ! Not even Easter but you did buy the best 2 spectrolites. Russians don’t get good press lately but I bought the stones from the Archetypal Russian Bear – big hearted, had travelled to Finland and fallen in love with a Finnish woman and spectrolite though I don’t know in which order ! he has the best though, I chose the best of his best, now you’ve chosen the best of that – worth a pre Easter purchase methinks :-)

    Hi Marc, Sounds like you had a great time! Love the sound of all the goodies you bought. Thanks for the invitation to preview these treasures but I am on a buying ban until after Easter. It is hard going. Would love to see your collection but dare not as I can resist everything, except temptation. Hope there are some left to go on line after Easter. Love sound of Star Garnets and Watermelon Tourmaline. Yum. Hope all goes well. Best Regards, Barbara Duffin
