crystal mineral crystal mineral seller observations

Well Here’s 2020 – hope its a great one for everyone!

I have to confess, the festive period took its toll with my time line for adding posts and I concentrating on posting orders!

But heres a niggle of mine, crystals and minerals are found in varying qualities or grades, there’s not real standard until you start talking semi / precious gemstones. However i often see A, AA, AAA listed by sellers for labradorite, lapis, dolomite etc perhaps a bright and happy stone but which clearly isn’t the best grade you could find….Anyway before I continue my grumbles heres a clearly top grade lapis lazuli cut as a faceted stone, a gorgeous rich deep royal blue colour, just unfortunate that there a chip on the end, not sure I’m brave enough to repolish but perhaps it could be hidden in a claw type setting…
