General Discussion / 925 Stirling silver pendant setting prices.
« Last post by cliffsearch on November 17, 2017, 04:48:41 PM »
I have noticed the difference in prices in the US compared to prices in Australia when it comes to buying solid silver pendant settings (925) for cut faceted gems. Yes, it will cost $20 postage if you buy one setting, but if you combine the postage buying multiple settings the savings are astronomical. A 15mm setting is half the price in the US compared to here. I was discussing this with another facetor and he said the same thing about the price discrepancy. I've always found US international mail better tracked than our own postal service, so that's no a issue. Most of us want to support Aussie business, but it's pretty hard to when the difference by half. Makes you wonder at times why prices appear out of balance with other countries.

I got a bucketful of moss opalite i think but also a translucent green stone. I have no idea what it is. Once the backlog of things at work settle(long service leave is good but it has created a bit of extra work) I'll post a few photos of some of the finds. The opalite was mainly the whitish material with oly a little gold coloured stuff found. I went to a hole already dug and just extended it a bit.

wallie, did you find anything on Hyden Rd? I was there around early August and found a few smallish pieces, still waiting for a nice piece of the tan or the white.

Gemstone Faceting / Re: Yin Yang for 64 Index
« Last post by Ghost on November 16, 2017, 09:08:17 AM »
The Ventilatore design by Marco Voltolini on the Gemology Project has four vanes instead of the two in the Yin Yang design.   It also has the single angle 32 facet pavilion I mentioned above.  Ventilatore instructions are for a 96 index but will convert to a 64 perfectly.
Just divide each index number by 3 and multiply by 2.
