- Nov 1, 2004
After much deliberation, I decided to lock up a large portion of my gemstone collection into my safe deposit box in the deep dark depths of my bank before moving overseas. I just didn't want the stress and uncertainty of moving them (concerns of theft or loss during the move), and not having a secure place to keep them in my new home. Has anyone ever separated themselves from their collection for a long period of time *years* (it will be a while). If I suddenly come back to them and am totally ambivelent, I hereby will a certain pink mahenge trillion from the gem trader (Brad) to Niel, and all others to NKOTB to hand out or keep for herself. I took some goodbye shots (in really awesome basement flourescent lighting) of some of them before sending them into gemstone purgatory (insert maniacal laugh here).
