When I gather it all together like this, it doesn't seem like a whole lot does it? But it sure is lovely. I want to eat those two gemmy candies in the middle. Mmmm! And I'm particularly stoked about that piece of petrified coral. I'm sort of seeing it as a wedding necklace for myself? Maybe? With some 18kt gold and diamonds? That is a pink rough cut sapphire, a rose cut tourmaline, green diamonds, faceted white agate, and I can't remember what that seafoam green one is called...I'll have to look for the name. And I totally forgot to write down the name of the two middle ones, so I haven't any clue. Note to self: next year remember to WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING.

Now, I know I'm a little late to the druzy lovefest, but I couldn't get enough of it. I really couldn't. There is just something so velvety about them. Of course, they don't look as sparkly in this lighting as they do under some direct light, but I think you can get the idea. Now I just need to figure out what to make with them. Definitely want to make some earrings.

All right kids, that is it for my gem show treasure show and tell. I didn't get much, but I did get a few good contacts. I have some natural champagney rose cut diamonds on their way to me right now!

Let's looks like the greenies from left or right might be Green Amethyst, Prehnite or Prehnite and Lemon Quartz?? The one is the back kinda looks like Amazonite or light Chrysoprase. Maybe. Really jealous you got to go! Love the drusy too...

Ooh! I think you might be right with the prehnite! But I'm positive I would have remembered lemon quartz or green was something weirdly named, that is why I am having trouble remembering. :-)
