Gemstones from Tucson - Part I

As promised here are some of my purchases from the recent Tucson gem shows.  We spent 5 days there, which was about 1 1/2 days too many for my budget.  I ended up buying the same exact cut of one stone twice, simply because we were there too long.  C'est la vie.

Chrysophrase (or is it chrysoprase?), rubies and lovely little glossy lapis briolettes.

Green Quartz (that's the one I bought twice -- love that marquis cut!), amethyst and rose quartz.

More to follow ... in another day or so.  Thanks for sticking with me!

Mmmm.... rose quartz promotes openness in love and loving feelings. Perfect for Valentine's! And those rubies are gorgeous!
