Care to share some pics?
And do you collect facets or polished?
What's your favorite gemstone?

We have olivine(peridot) here on the island everywhere! I have picked probly a good half pound or more from crushed gravel they use on building sites. Most are tiny probably less then a. .10 ct. But they are heavlily included. Nice green stones none the less though. I will get a picture of them here in a minute.

you know what i did in english class? I came to class stoned out of my mind every day, i chugged vodka in the back of class, i put dead fish in the ceiling tiles. i put a gallon of old milk and orange juice in the file cabinet before winter vacation. i brought snakes in a tied up sweater and let them loose during class. i didnt go to school to learn, i went because i had to. i didnt care, and i didn't fucking listen to that stupid bitch. and i still don't fucking care. i tore the pages out of her books and burned them, and threw away all the books in the class, two books per day.  :twobooks:

Yes, the facets in the small containers are worth some loot. Not all. I have a couple sapphire that are worth the whole lot I paid from all them. I also have an alexandrite and a couple .20 ct diamonds that would fetch a fair bit of change too.

The hawaiian peridot and the polished stones I don't believe are worth much the way they are.

They have a gem show in the city near me I went to when I was a kid. Loved it.

I got a really cool (not clear) emerald cut stone from there for like $15. Wish I'da kept it, I have no idea where it is but it was cool.

I got into collecting and jewelry making as a hobby. And am now trying to make a business out of it. Me and the ole lady make gemstone jewelry and also have a bunch of semiprecious beads for that. But jewelry making is everywhere here so hard to find a nitch.

Neat. I'd like to buy a bunch of CZ's in various colors just to have a sack of really pretty realistic gems.

Leave it around places for people to see it accidentally and think I'm some kinda crazy drug czar with bags of gems laying around :lol:

IDK where to buy them loose for reasonable prices though. I found one in a park near my house and thought it was a legit diamond until I brought it in to the jewelery store and the lady laughed at me.

Yeah, ya know I am not even sure where to get cz from. Gonna have to do a seaarch and see what I come up with on that. Sworvski crystals have been cheap stones for most people lately.

But i like a lot of other stuff too.

See, that term pedo gets thrown around a lot.
Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

Tanzinite: "the one generation stone"

At the rate gold is climbing in price, silver is about all we can afford anymore. My wife is into silver while I lean more towards the gold. I like the color changing stones like alexandrite. Whilei also am in love with a natural yellow diamond. Super freakin clear! I could stare into it forever. Jadeite is nice and I really like the plum color aswell as the green.
