What I do with unset coloured gems - a gemaquarium!

Over the years I've bought many a loose gem, from auctions mostly. Unlike the marvellous creations I've seen others design and wear, my little and not so little lovelies keep my "fish" company. True, not all are real gems and I also pop any broken crystal bibs and bobs in there was well but this fish tank of mine is very pretty as the sun catches it and best of all, the aquarium never needs cleaning and I haven't lost a single fish!

That is the cutest idea I've seen in a long time. What a conversation piece!

How very cool!
I love it.

... but I have to ask ... is dusting it an issue?

Love it, and I often thought of having a dry fish tank of my own!

Wow, what a great idea. Love the color and can only imagine the sparkle. I bet it's amazing to see in person.

Thanks everyone. It's a Lalique tank. All the Lalique fish have a LED light in the base of the Perspex column. And no dust, it has a lid over it. It took me many years to acquire all the fish (they aren't cheap) and I just had to buy the tank as well. It is my favourite thing in my house.
