scepters..thought I might post some scepters
[edit] since modo is now a princess I think she deserves a scepter befitting her status :D I know I know it's not a spinel encrusted scepter/scepters but it will have to do

Scepter quartz crystal with amethyst phantom

Aquamarine scepter

Blue kunzite(spodumene) scepter..this one at the base where it is standing has been broken off(no etching at all) where as the areas that jut out all show etching(almost the whole crystal is etched to some degree) which means it was formed when the etching took place..there is a chance that the broken off part was etched and just broke somewhere along the way..maybe crystal was a floater or maybe it broke off after forming and then etched then broke again

After examining the evidence I see the way to a princess's heart and size does matter. I guess I will have to make do with just beautiful tourmaline and unrequited love.
