For those who don’t remember the initial post, I thought I would do a before and after collection to show the change the rough went through.

Just spent the afternoon chatting with the renowned Ted Themelis, it never a dull moment talking to him haha. He happened to have a parcel of small well formed (completely natural) Sri Lankan sapphire crystals. It too him the better part of a year to collect these guys so I was quite appreciative to be offered the parcel. The pieces range fro about 0.10ct to 1.10ct (ave around 0.30ct) #lawsongems #gem #gems #gemstone #gemstones #gemmology #gemology #jewelry #jewellery #pretty #beautiful #nofilter #sapphirecrystal #sapphire #crystal #natural (at www.lawsongems.com       _)

Haha I just got suckered into buying a big old bag of heated Madagascar sapphire rough for a “bargain price”. I just seem to be buying everyones waste material this time around :P (one man’s trash is another man’s treasure right?) Anyone interested in this type of material?  How does 50ct for $10AU sound? #lawsongems #gem #gems #gemstone #gemstones #gemmology #gemology #jewelry #jewellery #pretty #beautiful #nofilter #sapphires #sapphirecrystal #madagascar #africa (at www.lawsongems.com       _)

Just got my first lot of cutting back, what do you think? This is from rose quartz and rock crystal I brought out of Mozambique (I actually took the rock crystal out of the ground myself so quite happy to see it cut finally :) )

This huge piece of crystal opal has a unique inclusion at its center (it is about 600ct). The piece is actually quite rounded and not flat like it appears in the pic. Has anyone ever seen an opal like this before?

It is always a bit tragic seeing the stray dogs around Bangkok, but at least most of the street restaurants give them their leftovers and let them live in and around  the sheltered areas giving them somewhat of a semi- homeless existence. Though a bit dirty and disheveled in appearance the do seem fairly healthy and it is not uncommon to see them having good hearted games umongst themselves #beautiful #Bangkok #Thailand #travel #dogs #sad #animalwelfare #homeless  (at www.lawsongems.com       _)

Another good find, picked up a small parcel of natural blue zircon. These are extremely hard to find in natural blue, normally they are heated or irradiated to add intense colour. These guys are off to be cut as round brilliants, they should sparkle like diamonds once finished :) www.lawsongems.com #lawsongems #gem #gems #gemstone #gemstones #gemmology #gemology #jewelry #jewellery #pretty #beautiful #nofilter  #zircon #crystal #roughgems #roughgemstones  (at www.lawsongems.com       _)
