Hi Triabannana,

Nice peridot. You only seem to get them in the Ringarooma River. I've had a few cut and they come up great. Hold their colour even in low-light conditions.

Is that 6 carat sapphire a cutter? Love to see another close up photo of it. Might just be the lighting, but looks like it's NOT from the Weldborough-Derby river systems?

Yep both the peridot and sapphire are out of the Ringarooma down from the mutual road bridge. I had a go at cutting the sapphire but it's to dark and full of cracks.
