WOW!! The swiss Blue topaz faceted is simply out of this WorLd!! Are they plain cabs or do they have a tiny hole drilled in them.

They are cabochons, so they don't have any holes.

You have such a good eye. Those are all beautiful. I do that same thing when I say I am only getting one thing and I end up going crazy buying everything.

As usual, some absolutely beautiful stones. Can't wait to see what you do with some of them.
How is everyone there; are you all well by now (I hope)?
Love, Judy
