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.
