Yep Zeehan. Prob would like to look into doing some jewellery at some stage. Just need more time and im not really one for sitting indoors! Would rather be out doing the hard yards!
A couple more pics of some of the stones we got back from thailand and the next lot of stones up to around 8 carats that we have got over the winter months, going into the post today. Some really nice colours in this lot. Cant wait for the water to warm up a little! :roll:

Thanks for sharing those pics, there's certainly some nice colours amongst your stones - cornflower blues in the sapphires and some nice orange-red in the zircons. It's hard to know whether to cut, make some jewellery or go fossicking - or grudgingly do the more mundane business tasks if there's money involved.

Yep. I know what you mean. Time management! .....Stripey trumpeter season opens today and the cray season opens hopefully in a couple of weeks here so want to be on the water as well as working ...and then there's fossicking. Still... the water is warming a little and the rewards are ther for those who persivere. Almost no rain since last summer on the northeast so things havnt moved around much. Tazzies awesome.
