New cabs

I went to a gem show over the weekend, and was thrilled to discover a local gem cutter with a beautiful selection of cabochons. They have all this wonderful tourmaline that is mined right here in California (near San Diego) - so cool! These cabs are all available for custom ring orders.

A nice, clear peachy-pink tourmaline cab

A bright, bubble-gum pink tourmaline cab

Nevada gem variscite

And my favorite - a large green cat's eye tourmaline...

... it was a splurge, but well worth it!
