Around Christmas, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine
said"When I returned to my bench I couldn’t find the ruby, it
was then I realized that I had swallowed it"! I told him if he
waited a couple of days he could probably recover it, but he
prefered a new stone.
This same guy had a customers emerald and diamond ring for
months, He looked everywhere, after awhile he went back to
quench the flask,he then noticed something sparkling in the
crucible. There were diamonds and emeralds in the crucible, he
had melted the ring accidentaly!
The weirdest place I have found something that popped off my
bench was on the top of a window frame. The stupidest place was
when I left a stone in the pocket of a shirt I took to the
I wonder if anyone else has any interesting stories about where
something was lost or missplaced?
