In the spirit of the slag/Glass/Wannabes thread I will post some of the things i am getting offered from the African Bush these days. Most are obviously not real. Some are more difficult to tell, and then it must be decided how to get samples, and how much to risk. Some are actually real, but with outlandish views of value. Rarely, one hits a good opportunity. In all cases it is entertaining.

Rather than start a new thread, I think I will post in this thread fun things as they come up.

This is what was sent to me through WattsApp. This from a guy who does find me good stones at times. His spellings as well.

Trust me we have found this stone here know one knows I will send samples to you. Find a good market brother you will see within a week time.

BENITOITE: Very rear spish and valuable among ten most valuable stones in the World.

Also attached a link to GemVal pricing...

What do you think it is. What to do......

Thanks for sharing these! I have enjoyed your stories about them and it is great to see how they look in situ.
