    Have You Watched The House Impeachment Hearings? If So, What Do You Think?

    Does anyone wonder if Trump will resign stating health reasons? He spent this afternoon at Walter Reed supposedly having a portion of his annual exam. He just had his annual exam in February of this year. We all saw a true patriot yesterday and a President who tried to bully and...

    I have a 13" necklace with a pendant. The pendant is marked on the back 10k. There are no jewelers marks on it I can see. It is in a box that has Walter Sperling Jeweler & Opticians, Seneca, Kan.

    Donald Trump Lost Money and Paid No Taxes. How Do You Feel?

    I have heard that most of his debt is held by foreign entities (think Russia, Saudi). I feel that this makes him vulnerable to being manipulated, especially as unlike any recent president, he refused to divest from businesses before he became president. As you may have recalled, Trump broke many...

    Opal ring with a surprise under the setting...

    In the Middle Ages, opal was considered a stone that could provide great luck because it was believed to possess all the virtues of each gemstone whose color was represented in the color spectrum of the opal. Unfortunately following the publication of Sir Walter Scott's “Anne of Geierstein” in...

    Donald Trump Lost Money and Paid No Taxes. How Do You Feel?

    I can say, as someone with some past experience with security clearances, that having debt held by foreign entities would almost certainly have knocked any of us "commoners" from getting a clearance, let alone being in that kind of position. Would have been considered way too much of a security...

    Opal ring with a surprise under the setting...

    Well that does explain it.....that something written in a book (fiction) would make people think it was bad luck...and people just went wayyyy too far with it. The comment from the saleslady: "All the holy water in the world can't get rid of the bad luck from an opal." Maybe she read the same...

    My Weird Little Dog...

    My dog is definitely quirky. My favorite story happened when we were dog sitting my brother’s Basset Hound (Walter). Our dog rings a bell to go outside. Over the course of our week dog sitting Walter, he began to annoy Hollis. He took over the dog bed and we had to feed them separately bc Walter...

    Natural Sapphire Co. CEO, Michael Arnstein, sentenced to prison

    Doubt Michael Arnstein is worried about employment. I'm willing to bet my own next paycheck that he is going to continue as President-CEO of the Natural Sapphire Company. It's a 3rd-generation family business https://www.thenaturalsapphirecompany.com/t-our_company/ that's actually formally...

    Opinion on possible small Emeralds

    Ok, thank you, probably I used the wrong source of information. There is a fragment of book on Google called Gemstones of the World by Walter Schumann. He says that Andradite (includes Demantoid) has the density 3.7 - 4.1. But probably Demantoid itself has lower density.
  17. Seaglow

    Opinion on possible small Emeralds

    I used Liddicoat and GIA's Gem Identification Lab Manual. Andradite's SG is 3.84 (+/- 0.03).

    Dog sitting is harder than I thought!

    :wavey: We had a pretty bad thunderstorm last night at around 4am. Walter barked for a few minutes which somehow only woke me up. :rolleyes: Then Hollis broke through the baby gate intended to keep him downstairs and got into bed with us and was shaking like a leaf for an hour. So, we're...

    Dog sitting is harder than I thought!

    Dog sitting is harder than I thought!

    Oh my gosh puppmom, you didn't need an injury on top of everything else! So sorry to hear about Hollis, I can't imagine how he managed to that and I'm glad he's ok. Too funny about Hollis ringing the bell just to get rid of Walter, wow, he's pretty smart! :D They really do sound like two kids!

    50 Rep National Security Officials Send Out Open Letter
