Throwback Thursday

Remember these? Like colorful stained glass windows for jewelry, mosaic opal stones are tiny pieces of opal cemented to a black onyx base. Once popular as an affordable substitute for solid opals, mosaic opals have faded into obscurity. JFG has a nice variety of shapes and sizes. Call us for more info!

Wednesday WOW!

Transparent faceted rhodochrosite in a lovely shade of strawberry red. Rhodochrosite is commonly seen as opaque stones or carvings in striated pinks with a strong resemblance to bacon (yum!), therefore transparent rhodochrosite is quite rare. This very unusual oval measures 13.25 x 10.25mm and weighs 7.46 carats! Stones that make you say WOW!

Happy Memorial Day!

We'd like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all veterans who have served our country. If not for veterans, we would not be able to enjoy the many freedoms we have. Too frequently we take these freedoms and veteran's service for granted. In memory of those who died in the ultimate act of sacrifice, we at JFG salute ALL veterans. God bless our past and present veterans and the USA!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Have a great Memorial Day - and don't forget to take a moment this weekend to remember those who died in the act of service to our country!
