A buddy of mine, whom I get my Co spinel from overseas, showed me a few pics of some Ray Mine Gem silica he cut for his business partner here recently. It was picked up the last time his boss man was in the states. He was told it had been sitting in the "sellers basement for 40 years".
It's some of the nicer cut material I have seen. He faceted that rectangle one, because of how transparent it was.
A couple of the pieces were for sale, he said, but I didn't ask the price.
I assume it's pricey. :smt102
