Testimonials

Hi, I just happened across your site while getting ideas for my wire wrap gemstones and sea glass.

The fact that you give away information, don’t insist personal information, has bought my business already.

To add to the joy (yes, I’m prone to hyperbole but I’m absolutely enchanted with your business model), you add stone treatment information rather than burying it somewhere.

It’s very important to me to be able to tell my customers the what’s been done to their stones, the quality, source and composition of the gems they buy.

I believe I’m the only vendor to have the FCC and AGIA disclosure booklets available at any festival I’ve attended.

You have a customer now and, if OK, I will use your page on stone treatments, with proper attribution of course, as a handout at my next festival the end of this month.

Brightest blessings,

Liz

Birth, Anniversary, Planetary, Zodiac and Astrological Gemstones.

 

Birth StonesFollowing is a list of birth, anniversary, planet, zodiac and astrological gemstones.

 

 *Considerable research was conducted in order to prepare this chart. If you search information on this topic, you will quickly learn than there are variations, not only in the dates of the signs of the zodiac, but also in the stones listed. In order for a stone to appear on this chart, it was found in a minimum of two other research sources. While many other stones are listed in various sources, those listed here were most dominant.
