Post holiday updates

Faceting related activity got prempted by the holidays. Finally got to posting the last of 2017 gems on the website.

These stones included several prasiolites (a light green variety of quartz) and even more garnets. Of course, the birthstone for January being garnet, that does seem an appropriate way to start the year. And if you need a garnet, but don't like red stones (or even better, have many red garnets already), be away that garnets come in just about every color. There has even been a recent finding of BLUE garnets! Browse some of the other pages on the site to see some other shades of garnet.

Pictured here is a purplish pink garnet from the Mahenge region of Tanzania.
