I can now scientifically state that there are, in fact, stone eating
gremlins in jewelry workshops. Having just cleaned out my old store
from top to bottom, in which for 22 years we constantly lost small
stones throughout the store, I can state definitively that I was
unable to find anything other than one lonely tiny orange sapphire.
No other explanation can exist as I know for a fact that we have
lost at least 50-100 small diamonds over the years. Interestingly
enough however, it appears that the stone eating gremlins do not
like organic material as I did find a plethora of old pearls from
one end of the shop to the other.
