Tucson Gem Show Purchases . Part III

The saga continues with more gemmy photos.  Are you drooling yet?  I know that I am indeed drooling and I can't wait to actually start working with some of these gorgeous gems.

Here are some tiny peridot brios, long marquis shaped smoky quartz (I have a serious weakness for this shape), chubby marquis shaped whisky quartz and rose quartz.



Now for some cardamom cut (at least that's what he called it!) fluorite, big fat deep blue sapphire brios and more cardamom cut green amethysts.



Last one for today: rose quartz and amethyst chubby, but shorter marquis cut brios.



I think I have one more day of photos.  I hope I haven't bored you!

Hmmm, cardamom to me is what I put in muffins.
You learn something new everyday.

Stunning stones.
and no, I am not bored.

There is NO WAY you could bore me with photos of gemmy goodness!! I'm particularly in love with the the smoky quartz marquis in the first photo - looks like you had a good time!!!
