Lee, Thanks for leading us to a very nice site. I enjoyed looking at
the fire agates.
Having said that.....this site is indicative of the ridiculous hype
that some people put out to the public in an effort to make people
believe things that just aren't true!
Are they beautiful fire agates? Of course they are and some of the
best, as far as I can tell from the pictures, I have seen for some
time. Are they so fantastic that 'enthusiasts would not be able to
identify them as fire agates?' Not for a minute-fire agates are
still fire agates! Are they beautifully carved and prepared? Yep!
Could they be duplicated......well, there are probably dozens of
carvers and cutters out there who, if offered a reasonable sum and if
they had the time to do it, could cut and carve items just as nicely.
It really aggrevates me when people put out such drivel!
Cheers from Don at The Charles Belle Studio in SOFL where simple
elegance IS fine jewelry! @coralnut2
