One of the things I love about gemstones is the fact that they are all so different and yet, have many things in common. They share colors and textures and places of origin. The stone I’m going to be talking about today comes from Africa, Iran and, a number of different areas in the United States.
I guess you could say, today’s blog is an interactive one because, I want you to participate.
