Hi Sheridan, Our Orchid Guy in Sri Lanka is Ahmed Shareek. I met him
when he traveled to Tucson last year, he stayed at my house and I
gave him a tour of Dallas. He is an tremendous gentleman as well as
quite the expert in gems.
He also has a cutting operation to cut rough, and I gave him about 2
kilos of rough to take back with him. When I got the cut stones
back, I was very impressed with the quality of the cut and the
cost, especially the cost.
Most cutters cut for size instead of brilliance and leave windows in
the stones. His stones were beautifully cut for brilliance. As a
matter of fact, I’m gathering a package of rough to send to him some
time this month. Give him a hollar , I’m sure you won’t be
disappointed. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Love and God Bless
