Potion Master Posted November 28, 2016 Share Posted November 28, 2016 Thought you'd like to see some of the items I got at the last gem show. I went a little nutty, I admit, but there was some really cool stuff this time around!!! The prettiest Labradorite I have ever seen - as big as your hand! I would have loved to get a few more of these, I only got 2 cuz they were pricey, they sell for $60 each. You can't really see scale from these pix, but these are boulders...I'm thinking around 50 pounds each? I have never seen this before and I am in love- it's BLACK MOONSTONE!!!! Soooo cool, I was forced to steal one and it now happily resides in my bedroom. I also got half a dozen "palm stones" in this, they are large tumbled pieces. Love. People really love stone hearts to give as gifts - they feel so nice in the hand too. We always carry a lot of these and picked up about 100 more at the show. As well as some large points in crystal in tiger eye and more massage wands. WHY do I love crystal balls so much?! I think it's because they are so lavish in a way...they're pretty much the most expensive form in which to buy a crystal, like buying an emerald cut diamond. They need to start with such large pieces to make them. I added around 30+ crystal balls to our collection at the show, kept finding more and more as I was unpacking that I had forgotten I had purchased. After I took this picture I added at least a dozen more in different colors. The thing about gem show buying is that it's a melee. You go - I'll take this this this this this this this, total it up, I'll be back in 10 mins, need to go to the next booth! There's never enough hours and you rarely get a second chance to grab something good. No less than half a dozen people tried to buy some giant rose quartz boulders after I had already claimed them. Things move sooo fast! Oh, I also got some large citrine points. More pix next time! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
