I have allways been fascinated by Opals and if you want to know more about this Kaleidoscope Stone why not read my article which you can find in the jewellers note book. Yes I still have the drawstring bag and all the milky white opals.
Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire, the choice is endless and I canít show them all here. If you want to know more about Gemstones and Birthstones why not go to the Jeweller Note Book above and browse through my articles which I hope you will find interesting.
