Don’t feel too bad Ros. Lesson learned and a mistake you will never
repeat. If you’re like me you’ll move on to new mistakes.
It reminds me of when I was younger and I had an amber recut, it was
a faceted marquise. I set it, carefully polished the ring, quickly
dipped it in the sonic, still dirty so I turned off the sonic and
hung it on a hook in the sonic to soak for a couple of minutes. I
got a phone call, forgot about the amber, someone else turned on the
sonic while I continued my day blissfully ignoring the amber. A
couple of hours later I had a heart stopping, beads of sweat on my
forehead freak-out as the realization of the amber sitting in the
sonic hit me like a lightning bolt.
It was basically melted. It looked like a well used root beer jolly
rancher. All the facets were gone.
I had a new one cut and never did that again.
What a life!
