This was our second trip to the GFMC and last year our son found an emerald which once cut ended up being 2 carats emerald cut and rather nice.
This year we got the $106 bucket and found a ton of really nice stuff.
We only got a small portion of it cut and in the end we are very happy with our gems:
One 5 carat London Blue Topaz (perfect clarity) in oval brilliant cut- more stunning than anything we have seen in jewelry stores.
Two 2 carat sapphires cut in emerald cut which we will be having made into cuff links.
One 2 carat emerald cut in oval brilliant which my hubby has not decided yet how to use.
One 2 carat Iolite cut in oval brilliant which I will be having made into a ring
One 10 carat smoky quartz which had perfect clarity and we had cut in an oval brilliant to be made into a pendant.
Those were probably 1/15 of the gems that we found.
We also found a geode the size of a large baseball, which we had cut and we polished- very cool hands on geology experience!
We'll be back again!
