Hello cameo I’ve just seen your comment,glad you’re doing okay,I didn’t realise you was still around,I have been posting lots of stones from the collection I have but hadn’t heard from you for 2 years,
I have seen a spinel which looked identical in colour to this stone Tommy
Wow lit I have just checked pink tourmaline,and see what you mean, I also saw a loose stone for sale which cost a fortune.
Thanks myco I have never heard of them before so thanks I will do some looking online
Thanks prin I have seen blue moonstone with a hint of blue in a clear stone but never seen one like this which seems like pale blue with a hint of crystal clear stone
Thanks Rene I will look up what you said to try to learn about them
Hello cameo I don’t think you come on here anymore, but saw a girl in the new film aeronauts wearing a pendant what looks just like this one,

Thanks kJ great help and I didn’t see any that colour so glad you cleared that up,
Hi mj I looked at topaz and this one seems a different kind of blue, but i think I have a few stones that look like topaz and I may have posted them before, thanks for the help
Thanks mj, I will try and Get a better picture as the background is a bit blue , I will check the tests for topaz to see if it is
Thanks Ho2 I couldn’t remember the name of them
It’s only marked 925 on the inside, I think the H on top of G is part of the design, not sure as I did not see it till you said
Thanks anything it’s a man or big woman size, and is different sections each is a G I’ve also not seen one before but it’s old and has a feeling of quality about it,
Thanks Amy it’s over a 100 grams
Thanks watch good tip about the pin.
This is a very unusual bracelet truth, I have never seen one like it , the amount of work in the design is amazing and looks like it was done by hand,
Thanks truth I couldn’t see anything else but the numbers I thought I saw letters but think it’s just engraving, I will double check tomorrow in the day light
Great help bill I’ve not had one before I have only heard the name, looks totally different in sunlight which is the last picture
Thanks bill I will have a good look at the site
Thanks truth I thought it would hang from a chain
Just seen some Val amulet pendants,
Thanks for helping, would it be worn like a pendant
OMG fhrjr2 just followed your tip and unbelievably one end started turning, amazing I am posting the results for you to see now.
Thanks I have added a picture of the size 4 1/2 cm
Thanks kerra for helping
I did have the same thoughts of it being dyed but have never seen the inside of a coral bead, maybe dyed coral ?
Thanks kerra I have never heard of African trade beads before
Thanks I will measure it and weigh it
Thanks vet I can see you still have that sharp eye for quality. Hope you’re well and happy hunting
Thanks val I don’t expect I will ever get round to taking them somewhere as they have been sitting in a box for years , just trying to learn a bit about them,
Thanks wsk I need a ultraviolet light, I was told good jeweller can spot real gems from sight, I post pictures of these gemstone in the hope one may frequent this site.
Ie when a stone passes fog test, I think they might have a chance of being real, I think all the ones posted have at least passed, that test
Thanks welz I am going to buy a gemstone tester as it’s not possible to identify stones by pictures but it helps when collectors have a idea what a stone could be as i then can conduct home tests so i...
I didn’t think it would be worth much as it’s only small, I am amazed that they managed to cut it so neatly, stunning workmanship
Thanks for the help I have heard of spinels but hadn’t considered them but they sure do look similar, thanks great help
Thanks truth my interest in stones has grown since I bought a collection and started cleaning them, now I am trying to learn as much as I can
Thanks truth as I wasn’t sure as tigers eye I had seen before was different
Thanks truth could be amethyst but I have always seen amethyst a darker purple, but have read they come in many shades, not enough experience to tell tho
