and can be hard to replace.
Actually, it is not that difficult to replace gold stone these days.
I always thought as you that there was little of it around, etc, etc.
Then during a recent road trip west, we stopped at T-Rocks shop in
Quartzsite and found at least a ton or more. No only the
orange/golden variety but he also had green and blue. Of course, it
was made in China!! Not bad looking stuff though.
I got some of the green and blue as I still had the golden. Contact
Mike or Theresa Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org. They are probably
at home in MI at this time. If no joy, try Jim at the shop at
Cheers from Don at The Charles Belle Studio in SOFL where simple
elegance IS fine jewelry!
