Hi guys. I got my very first natural stones and I'm really excited about them. They're citrines, peridots, smoky quartz, garnets, etc. Really common and with awful cuts/chips/inclusions but I think my facebook friends are already tired of me sending them pics, so I figured I'd move my enthusiasm over here instead. I'm not sure if they have other treatments aside from heat (the description didn't mention any other). They were very cheap and I'm kind of happy they're so flawed as it means I can learn a lot from them. I haven't been able to study them that much because all my loupes and my glasses are at my parents' house. Sorry for the less than professional pictures!

On Saturday I'm going to visit this local place where they sell mineral (mostly quartz I'd imagine). I'll post a reply here if I buy something nice :)

Are you planning on re-cutting these or were you just interested in using them to practice ID'ing them?
