Hello everyone! its been such a long time since I have posted, Its
like riding a bike!
I have a few question so if anyone has any pertaining to
any of them feel free to help me out, Thank you in advanced.
This project has been in the back of my mind for a very long time, I
originally went on this search over a year ago and the results came
up empty, the project has been eating away at me ever since. To start
I am looking for 3mm,4mm, 5mm, and 6mm round ball cut Peridot and
Blue Topaz, I need the stones cut without the holes for beading
because I do not bead and they are not going to be used for beading.
If someone has a source for the stones with the holes, that will
still help because I can use them as a last resort and fill the
cavity with something. I figure I might need to find a Lapidist to
cut the stones for me. The two sizes I need the most are 4mm and 5mm.
Natural stones would be better but I will settle for lab grown. Money
is a issue and is not one as well, I have been thinking about this
for a long time and its a personal project that has a lot of
sentimental value to me so if I have to save up for the natural
stones I will.
My second question is something almost everyone will probably have
an opinion on, Birthstones, the two birthrates for this object are
August 5th 1988 and December 10th 1983, August is commonly associated
with Peridot and December with Blue Topaz, what is everyones opinion
on such? I figure its mostly marketing but anyones input on
birthstones and such is greatly appreciated, I have found web pages
that go down into the day for the birthstone (maybe the year too?) I
find this interesting I am not a spiritual person myself but I have a
