There is way more, mate. That dumb ass has a long history of selling BS to those who can't differentiate a pile of crap from true gemology. Hughes is one of the gemologists who has been pointing that out since day one. Dumbo doesn't like it when his minions are shown a different light and, every time it happens, starts throwing rocks at the light-source, hoping it goes out. In a lot of cases a bit of bullying and threatening works, most gemologists put their own google results in front of the well being of the misguided and just leave it. RWH's kept shining though so here we are.

At the moment Dumbo finds himself lit by a multitude of spotlights so the old rock-throwing has continued. $0,99 cent glass-filled chunks of Ebay 'gems' are flying in all directions... without hitting a thing, I must add.

I stumbled onto the "yourgemologist" site while querying for gemstone properties. I've been in materials science for going on 50 years, have been an active mineral collector since I was eight, and after reading less than a paragraph on the site, realized what a load of hooey. Talk about pandering to morons!

This seems to be the Holy Grail of Mr. James proselytizations...

I also find it more than a little disturbing the followers of Robert James always seems to point everything towards the so called andesine controversy. Personally I could not care less regarding that story. But when mr Tin Foil Stetson starts to manufacture "evidence" and puts out plain lies to miscredit chinese and Hong Kong dealers by newsletter after newsletter, I'm glad someone shows he is as bad himself as he claims others to be. Seeing the words honesty and truth coming from him gets ridculous.
