This is another of Hans' sporadic stone sales - but with a difference: half the proceeds will go to the Okeno memorial fund, organized on behalf of the widow and children of the very highly regarded Gichuchu Okeno, gem dealer and miner in Kenya. Similar sales are presently being organized by others in the gem community also.

The album below constitutes the actual sale. Just click on a picture and place your bid in the "comments." A highlight of the sale is the 13.4 "Okeno Amethyst" I cut for the occasion. That stone is the final item in the album.

Sale ends midnight EST on Wednesday April 6.

Therewith endeth my chapter, and thanks again to all who participated and to GO for allowing me to post the information here.
