Hello, I'm wondering if anyone can give me any info. on crystal gold. I mostly want to know, what exactly is it (if it actually exists,that is.)?

is schwartzki crystal an actual crystal that is dug out of the ground or is it like my "crystal" decanter and just lead glass?

Was in a sandy bottomed creek bed next to some rather large rocks that formed a cliff face... Was digging out (by hand) huge (larger than human head size) chunks of bi-color tourmaline purple and clear. The large ones were heavily fractured and uncuttable - but who in their right mind would want to cut such large specimens?? Also found with these perfect bi-color up to 2 inch+ long peices for cutting! Some of the stones at the color change looked like two stones joined together the color change was very sharp and well defined! One guy had his lap machine with him and while stones were being pulled out (boot of car full) he was cutting! Finished products were up to 2 inches long! Sorry no photos... twas only a dream I had last night!!  ;D

General Discussion / if your jewellery was lost/stolen...
« on: August 03, 2010, 12:58:19 AM »
I want to ask you all a question... If you were to be robbed and your jewellery was stolen... would you be able to describe each individual piece to the police??

Next question... would you be willing to pay a professional photographer to take photos of your jewellery should the unlikely event actually occur??

and one last thing... if you had accurate detailed photos of your jewellery and the jewels were stolen or lost - do you think you would have more chance of recovering the missing items by using the photos??

General Discussion / stones to photograph...
« on: July 28, 2010, 01:57:04 PM »

Having some thoughts... and wondering about where I can get my hands on cut or uncut stones and jewellery to photograph... I have already photographed all the stone the Captain has cut as well as all my jewellery and Onjahlikas jewellery! I kinda need the practice!I promise that if anyone sends anything to me for photos I will give it back including photos taken!!  ;D

Myself, the Capt. and the rest of the family (including the dog) are looking at going to Grawin around 4 - 6 weeks or so before Easter 2011!

Just wondering if anyone has ever camped out there and basically what we could expect? Last time we were out that way we camped at Lorne Station Lightning Ridge! Was great but a touch too far away from Grawin!

Tell you a bit about me?? Hmm... think I should start by saying that the lovely Capt. Mendoza be my husband or is that pirate?! I kinda figured that I couldn't allow him to have all the fun!

He does all the hard work at finding the stones and cutting them (and now starting to learn how to set them) And I do the easy part... photographing said stones and wearing them!! :)
