I'd also like to say a big THANK YOUTo Vincent for his time and knowledge. The most interesting and informative chat I have had in a long time. Four hours and forty minutes of prime time gemmology...Thanks :D :D :D You are now our longest ever chat record holder.

The log will be sent to Barbra for posting before the end of the week. I'll e-mail a copy to Vincent to.

I'll be happy all week now thinking about what I learned :D

All the best to you Vincent in your life and in your career.

Frank

Hi All,
I was fun to participate...Honestly I'm quite amazed that you did not get bored and that most of you stayed all that time in front of their screen. I hope that it had been helpful.
It was nice and a pleasure on my side.
Thanks for the opportunity...
All the best,

Conny: That's scary... I hope that in 4 hours I did not write too much non sense. The questions were coming quick up and it was sometimes difficult to follow. I tried to be direct, and to write as rapidly as I could. I just hope not to have been too blunt and not to have written in a very bad Fren-glish...
I will also read every word of the logs... LOL be sure of that also!

All the best,

Vincent, you are an absolute pleasure to listen to.

Your stories make me feel like I was right there beside you, finding treasures, swatting away mosquitoes, making my case to jail guards, meeting interesting gem traders by the mines, hiking through the bush with mud up to my knees, describing the local geology and bringing back pockets full of curiosities....... :D
