Tucson Gem Purchases III

And yes, there are more gems photos to share with you.

Here are some really pretty faceted garnets, intriguing moss amethyst (these brios are much smaller than any moss amethysts I've had in the past and I like this size much better) and gorgeous pear shaped emerald briolettes.

This next photo is of 3 strands of green rutilated quartz. It may have another name when it's green, but if so, I do not know it. This type of stone is so hard to "make pairs" with. That's why I bought all 3 strands that the vendor had. The chance of making pairs is much greater when you have more specimens to work with. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I have 3 more photos to share, but will save them for my next post. Thanks for tuning in!
