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,

Carefully selected gemstones help you create outstanding necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Tiger Eye is a type of quartz, with its golden luster has yellow and brown stripes and a strong chatoyance or sheen sometimes referred to as "eye". Thus the stone's name is based on its resemblance to the eye of the tiger. Jewelry makers find it easy to recognize. Red Tiger Eye is often heat treated. Dark blue Tiger Eye can be natural and is also known as Hawk's Eye. Many new bright blue or "peacock" Tiger Eyes are dyed. Tigereye is mined in Australia, Myanmar, Nambia, South Africa and the U.S.A. Some feel this stone can be effective for those who are stubborn since it is purported to pull one into a more positive and flexible attitude. Others wear Tigereye to give them courage and strengthen their convictions. It has also been said to be an appropriate stone for easing sexual tension between partners. It is maintained that Tigereye helps with heart disease, psoriasis, bronchial asthma and high blood pressure. Tiger Iron gemstone is chocolate or brown colored with yellow veins. Tiger Iron is composed of tiger's eye, red jasper, and black hematite and mainly found in Australia. It is said to promote self-confidence and self-assurance and to improve stamina.
