    Is this definitely Quartz? I find alot of it when picking and im going to polish a load up soon. As i love the way it looks.

    I would gladly send some to people on here to play with once i do a batch. Most of the bits i find are large though so will need breaking down.

    Thanks
    Mick

    It is a cheap gemstone, many people like it though, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I have lost count of the number of quartz ( in its many variations ) items I have made over the years.

    Itís cheap but there are people who also think it has healing qualities so itís very popular. I had a cheap but interesting iron tigers eye necklace in my show once and I could have sold it 6 times over. People just seem to like stones, not necessarily with anything beautifully crafted along with them:/

    This is my chunk of Rose quartz which was a gift

    Or squirrel the idea away until A E Wards have some stock of them in, they have Amethyst and Garnet in stock, if it's the shape rather than the specific stone that attracts.
    What do you mean? Wards have them...? And how would you get them? I dont get it

    Ah! Yes, I can see how that could happen, I'll be sure to be a bit clearer when mentioning Ward Gemstones in the future.
