Good idea Arcadian. I recorded the later showing tonight so I can watch it again. That was kind of interesting about the Apple guy being such a gem collector.

Thanks, Marcy! I really enjoyed it. Just short of an hour, and while kind of dramatic, pretty entertaining and informative.

Yeah I know. He had a 30ct Sapphire :shock: And I peeped a decent sized sphene too.

Marcy, I saw your post and the show came up for a second airing on my PBS station so I stayed up late to watch it. Totally worth it. Thank you!

Monarch I am glad you enjoyed it. I loved the gorgeous gems and diamonds and did enjoy the show. Gems are like astronomy - I could listen to anything that is talking about it.

Arcadian, he did have a fabulous collection. A variety of wonderful gems and colors.

Momhappy, I hope all of you enjoy watching it.

Rainwood, that is what I did too - found the later airing and recorded it. I hope staying up late to watch it means you dreamed of some gorgeous gems.
