Hey everyone!

I joined to learn from everyone here. Total amateur! My girlfriend and I had custom promise rings from gems we selected and purchased at a gem show (after trying desperately to figure out how to collect rough and have them cut ourselves). That caught our interest in taking things further! I'm reading about faceting machines now, and this forum is GREAT!

We wanted to find aquamarine and sapphire rough. Guess we have to go visit the miners in Australia for part of that! You guys have made it feel possible!

Thanks for helping kindle the excitement!!!

- Gordon

Have you been to Gore Mountain? It has to be close to you -- and you can find cuttable garnet there.

What part of upstate? I lived in Rochester for 35 years.
