I was chatting with Freke about her stash and thought I would ask a cutter I knew if he had anything similar. So while his stones are not ones he has sat on for years with nowhere to put them (I am SO envious of Freke''s stones from the 80''s!), they are the ones he wouldn''t normally sell. Included, pale colors, etc. I personally don''t mind inclusions, since I think they add character

So I snapped them up while I could!

The heliodor is still my favorite, though.

I plan to eventually set them all, in pendants and rings. The only ones I might let go of are the amethysts - Freke is looking at them this weekend.

I''m wondering what sort of fun things I could do with them :D I actually considered a DBTY type necklace using the rounds! I''ll have to get the measurements out and see if they will work.

Lol. I think your stash outweighs mine (big time!), but mine certainly outnumber yours! (Not that that matters, it just means more pretties for ALL of us to oogle!!!)

I can''t wait for Saturday!!!!!!!!

(Mojito at lunch?
