Newbie questions
« on: April 29, 2019, 07:14:43 PM »
Hi everyone,

These are some sapphires I found at Billabong Blue over the weekend. We has a ball finding them, and like most people here, found the owners to be wonderful hosts.

I'm told I can send these to 'Lamberts' in Thailand to be cut, polished, faceted etc My question is are any of these worthwhile sending away? The biggest is over 30 carats a few over 20 and a bunch over 10.

None of them are see through in normal light but most have a beautiful blue/ blue green colour when held over an LED torch.

My other newbie question is once cut are they worth anything? I know this is a hard question to ask via a photo but any guesstimate would be great

Welcome Joel, I think you might need to do ten posts. So eight more and you should be able to upload pictures to the gallery.

Joel, you also might need the picture to be below a size limit(maybe it's about 1mb).CheersMB
