All is well at our offices and farm. We have been Blessed once again and the hurricane passed us by with little to no damage to our property. There is still a large scale recovery going on in other parts of North Carolina, so please keep those folks in your prayers and good thoughts.
Dana has gotten back to cutting this week and we are trying to get back on schedule. I was out of the office for a few days with a terrible cold and you can hear in my most recent video, I have an awful voice.
We are getting items together for our next Sale and I will keep you posted with the dates once available.

Colored gemstones typically in the last 50 years have been graded EYE CLEAN to INCLUDED. This was done without magnification, above the crown, at 12 inches from your light source above the gem, and some sources say at arms length. We do not use the GIA diamond grading scale for colored stones. It does not transition over because there are too many variables within the mineral families.
If you are in search of a loupe clean gem, please inquire prior to purchase and shipping. We will honestly tell you if it is the gem you are in search of.
All photography is taken outside, with a true MACRO lens under 10x magnification, and in subdued lighting. We feel this may give you a better representation of the color... I am not a photography expert by any means but I do try to make sure you see the cut, the clarity, and the outside color of the gemstone.
We have a full refund policy less shipping which to me is the only way to go as beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and a computer monitor can only show so much; so we feel we have to have this policy to be fair as we feel the same way when we get in a parcel of rough; if it is not as described we want to be able to return it...We will always strive to be fair, honest, and kind to everyone; and will always do our very best to keep quality up and the prices as low as the market or our pockets can stand.
Thank you all for your kindness, support, and friendship in the past few years; we could not have done it without all of You... I am just so humbly Blessed and Thankful...It is so wonderful to have been Blessed with good friends... FATHER continues to Bless this lowly creature... I am thankful for each and every one of you...
