    All things are possible - if you look at them the right way!

    OK found the website

    Buy Gemstones Online | Loose Gemstones Wholesale to the Public - Precious and Semi-Precious Gemstones

    I'm no expert on the prices of gems or how much it would cost to import them through customs but they sure are pretty to look at!

    I fancy a tool buying trip to the States. They seem to have a much better selection but good old customs & excise (or whatever they call themselves these days) plus the mail (with handling charges) make them soooo dear. So, "beam me over to the States Scotty" and I'll be happy!!

    The thought of Sri Lanka in February has me drooling - I went to Kerala for 3 weeks this January and I cannot believe I did not come back with any gemstones, silver or jewellery even thought I found a nice shop or two and negotiated wholesale(ish) prices...OH must had added something to the water to curb my spending

    My father lives in Florida and when I used to visit, I ordered stones, silver, gold-fill metals and small tools, delivered to his home so I could pick them up and bring them home in my luggage. What a shame I had to ex-communicate him....not! (But a whole other story to that decision.)

    I'm hoping for world peace but I'd also like something shiny as well...

    My OH's parent's live in Florida, and I plan on fully exploiting that fact

    I'm sorry you don't speak with your dad though

    Oh yes, it's very useful - cheap/free postage within the US, then standard airmail to UK as a "gift" ('nuff said)

    And the other fact I love about mail order shopping over there is if you buy from another state - no tax!

    I've bought a few from Marquise and more to the point George mentioned them in a previous thread.
