Atlanta Loot

 I picked up some faceted stone briolettes, mother of pearl rings, Gold engraved Czech glass coins, metal lentils, Red Creek Jasper rounds, blue and pink stone rounds (unidentified!)


 Turquoise,  and more stone rounds that weren't marked. I think they might be crazy lace agate, copper green opal, and the teal rounds- I'm really not sure!


These lovelies were a steal!! Faceted citrine, amethyst, faceted Chalcedony, and those pretty dark blue brios- again- I'm not too sure what they are. too dark to be kyanite.  maybe a fluorite of some sort? 



These are the beads that Kelley made for me while I was watching her melt glass- Olive green, metallic with raku nuggets, coral spacers with raku, purple opal lentils, and encased purple spacer, and a blue with lavender dots on dots round.

  3. Not sure... but it looks like the rounds might be dyed agate. You should bring one to the show in Philly and ask one of the stone dealers if they've got any more of it and if they know what kind of stone it is. Some of them are trained AIG Gemologists.

  7. The dark blue brios are iolite. Blue fluorite tends to be a little lighter (unless it's dyed).

    Nice haul!

  13. Serious yum going on there. What are you going to cook up next?
    I wonder if those blue ones aren't a blueberry quartz? I love those mottled colored ones and those silver and metallic ones in the first pic. Droolworthy all!
    Enjoy the day!

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
