A Day at the Museum Part 2

Continuing our tour of the Mineral, Gem and Schmuck Museum

An old jeweller's bench and a diamond polisher

Large pieces of Sodalite

A bird carved from Watermelon tourmaline

This must have been awkward to use but oh so pretty to look at

Carved from various semi-precious stones

This is amethyst as it is found, just waiting to be cut and polished

Everyone needs to have an Fabergé egg of amethyst in their chotke collection

Amethyst jewellery

Flowers carved from semi-precious stones. Oh Honey, I'll take this bouquet for Valentine's Day!

I'd like to thank Ivett for being such a sweetheart in allowing me to share her wonderful pictures.
