Re: Precious Colors

Hi Lyn,
thanks - and yes, I do like that shot too

Birthstone?!? I dare not to comment on that concept ... but,
be careful with the 'Golden Topaz' as they are most often Citrin (natural yellow Quartz) or heat treated Amethyst (also Quartz). Blue ones may be synthetic, and serve as substitute for Aquamarine. Lots of fakes out there, so ask questions befor you buy ...!

Topaz is sometimes found in crystalls of several meters in lenght. I can't believe it's worth while to fake this rather cheap gem stone - but they do it anyways.
