Thanks for all the wonderful photos Burmesedaze.

It just amazes me the advances in technology that allow us to share your fabulous adventure in real time from thousands of miles away. When I was a kid a trip of less than fifty miles to the seaside took most of the day, and the visit was shared with Granny and Grandad via picture postcards that took days to be delivered!

Rest well and thank you for the pictures.

Can I ask why the yellow bangle is not for sale? For when you have time to respond.
We think they are not sure if it's really jadeite or other minerals. But it's unique alright! Not seen this yellow before.

I am amazed i managed to wake up early for work today.

I am equally at the access the traders have to the outside world and realtime buyers now because of technology too. It has changed the manner and tradition of trade alright.

Possibly jacked up prices too!

Sapphire mine auntie opened a small new shop at Gem Museum today. Basket of flowers from me and we had fun with gems on it.

Sapphires are from their mines and cut by their cutters.

They have also collected old stones and old goldsmith work over the years. The quality shows.

They have cute owls too. Pretty modern and better workmanship with moulds.

I purchased a lavender jadeite necklace. Beads are big at 12-13mm.

I found these 2 strands of darker blue jadeite beads at my jeweller's today. It's probably the same mine as the blue hulu and flowers from livestream.

Getting a strand for a bracelet.

Love this kind of interesting blue. That’s the color range I got in my darker blue bangle, though mine is not as toned. It’s so nice that you got a set. I didn’t think I’d ever find a set to go with the bangle but now I know that when the time comes, it is possible:) I especially like the carved earrings. So mysterious.

This material is scarce compared to other colours, not sure if the mine is still producing or just old rough being sold and cut right now :)

I hope I can find some eventually, as much as I love the color. You got some great pieces:) With that, I’m grateful to have one piece in this in This range.
