I don't know where January went; I've been so busy cataloging, measuring, weighing and taking pictures the time just blew away. I've been restocking and will be for awhile, my stock was getting seriously low. the turquoise is almost gone. I'm trying to find something special but it isn't an easy task when you want to buy in volume, there is a lot of junk out there.
I have however, found some fabulous Malachite and Lapis; both all natural. If you take the time to check pricing I think you will be very happy with the pricing. The Lapis has a good amount of gold in it, from Afghanistan; as nice as it is I think it probably came from old stock.
Malachite now has it's own gallery and so does Lapis.
If you like druzy, I've got over 1000 cts on the way, in all kinds of stunning colors but it will be a bit before that gets listed.
Thanks for all the interest and purchases you made already in 2012!
