Lots of new 4mm cabochons!

by Julia Aufenast October 25, 2011 1 min read


I haven’t blogged for absolutely ages, I know.  Very bad of me.  The thing is, I’ve had so much new stock in that I’ve struggled to do much more than photograph and list for weeks!  But here we are with some of the new.  I’ve hugely expanded the variety of 4mm cabochons that I stock.  I now have citrine, amethyst, rhodolite, emerald, garnet, sky blue and swiss blue topaz, clean rainbow moonstone, hessonite garnet, peridot, tourmaline and apatite.  Look out also for milky and clean aquamarine, London blue topaz, prehnite, iolite and green amethyst, all coming in the next few days.

When Prehnite Packs a Punch

Many years ago, shortly after I started out, the price of prehnite went shooting up. It was one of those odd things, where I had to do a bit of a double take. What could be going on? I was told, it was because it was being used as a jade substitute for the Chinese […]
