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,

Sapphire Gemstone Beads, Pendants and Cabochons

Premium quality wholesale Sapphire gemstone beads, pendants and cabochons for jewelry making and designing. Carefully selected gemstones help you create outstanding necklaces, bracelets and earrings. There are two gem varieties of Corundum. If this mineral is red, it is a Ruby and if it is another color, it is Sapphire. These colors include blue, pink, purple, orange or green, providing beautiful choices for jewelry designers. The pink-orange sapphire is generally called Padparadscha. This remarkably hard mineral may also be gray, black or colorless. The price paid for natural Sapphire depends on several factors including color, clarity, size, cut, overall quality and geographic origin. Sapphires are located in Afghanistan, Australia, Africa, Ceylon, China, India, Kenya, Madagascar, Myanmar, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand, Vietnam and the U.S.A. Sapphire, considered a stone of creative expression, intuition and meditation, may also help soothe depression and bring mental clarity. The gemstone is believed to help lower fevers and inflammation and to aid with hearing problems and burns. This gemstone is said to promote pure emotions such as serenity, joy and peace and some women select the blue sapphire for engagement rings since the color is related to permanence and reliability. There are many vendors selling "glassed" sapphires and rubies so be sure you buy from a trusted source. They are far less expensive for their clarity than they should be which will be your first hint that they maybe glassed.
