I have been enjoying the Orchid list and hope to contribute whenever
possible. Here is an interesting note:
On the way home from the ACC show 2 weeks ago another gem dealer and
myself were pulled aside at the BWI security check point for a more
thorough search. Upon seeing all the beautiful items, one of the
security people promptly pulled out $50 for the purchase of a strand
of pearls from my friend.
He didn’t buy any briolettes though !
