I also think that the gorgeous druzy freeform cabs make super gifts when wrapped in sterling wire. Actually, I've got a couple of friends who would be pleased just to receive the cab and then do their own things. Be sure to note the sparkle in the photos of these pieces.
The Pietersite cabs are perfect for someone who has everything. This stone is probably less familiar to most and don't we always want something different?
Cyber-wise, Magpie Gemstones continues to work on adding information to the website that will help all of us in our jewelry making. Be sure to check out the basic information about properties, treatment, hardness, etc. of gemstones. http://www.magpiegemstones.com/about_gemstones.html I refer to this page often when I'm trying to make a decision about a stone or want to describe it to someone.
Watch for new videos to be added to the website. I know that Szarka and her able young assistant, the little Magpie, worked on several things this weekend and I'm looking forward to seeing what they created for us. (Isn't Cyber Every Day great?)
By the way, Cyber Every Day isn't just during the day. Customers from all around the world shop at various times during their day or night and all those orders get prompt service.
Hoping you Cyber with us, we are Magpie Gemstones.
