And for those who read my post in the “African Blue” thread, this
book isn’t a bad place to start if you want to begin to escape the
rip-off artists in the gem biz.

I didn’t get a signed copy…(SIGH)

Pricey, and worth every penny… It’s a “Way” as Eastern philosophy
might put it… Will change the way you look at most any stone…

Was recently at the “Pearl Exhibit” at the Milwaukee Public
Museum…

There was a pearl and amethyst necklace…

These were big (13X18+) amy faceted…nice lights… I knew what
they were, as I saw them…

Siberian amy…blue/red flash and all… Blue…!

I am now ruined in my life for most amethyst I will encounter…

And yeah…the card agreed with me…
