totally French site about gemology and rocks. Sections on Gems, Minerals,
Fossils, Jewelry. Has a very French flavor, from the backgrounds
to the fonts to the jewelry itself. Like a little trip to France!
I get dozens of requests for links to sites that at first blush look just like this one and ... blah, blah, blah ... But on an impulse I looked at it ... and to my shock, I loved this site. The Reviews were brilliant.
They say: Getting the real scoop about diamonds isn’t easy. Who can you trust? Certainly not the salesperson trying to sell you a more expensive diamond. You also can’t trust the website that wants to sell you the diamonds that they specialize in. Diamonds Pro is here to tell you the things that nobody else wants to tell you — our goal is to teach you how to spend the least amount of money possible while buying a diamond that looks just as great (if not greater) than the more expensive stone they want you to buy.
Who'd'a guessed there were such things. Especially not me, with a background in the Legalize Gold movement of the 70's. But hey, Gold today, Pot tomorrow. No, no ... it's Gold Yesterday, Pot Today. Now there are dozens of competing gold IRA's. Here's a guide comparing them. Good Luck!
The Gold IRA Guide gives tips to consumers on how to make a wise Gold IRA investment, examines the best rated Gold IRA providers, explains the benefits of investing in gold and answers some common questions. The guide is online and available to use and share at no cost.
Good afternoon and greetings from Mrs. Ward's class!
I hope you don't mind me reaching out to you like this. I'm currently
in the middle of a class project and was hoping you might be able
to lend a hand. My students and I are working to revamp our outdated class
website by adding a comprehensive resource section for students, parents
and even other teachers. One of my students, Amy, found your webpage while
searching for resources for our "science" category. It's a great
page that we will most likely be utilizing!
As an additional requirement for this project, my students need to share a
similar resource with the sites they've borrowed information from
(sharing knowledge = good netiquette, as they're learning haha). So here's another
resource Amy chose for your site - Joan Ward
Since your page was helpful to my classroom, I thought I would pass along another resource one of my students found that you might like to include: "40 Common Minerals - Tungsten, Silver, Feldspar & more!" - http://www.larsonjewelers.com/40-common-minerals.aspx
It lists 40 common minerals and their uses, making it a handy reference guide. I thought your visitors might find it beneficial too. (Plus, I would love to show my student that the page he found is incorporated on your website...makes him feel special, haha!) Hope I could help!
Happy Holidays, Ms. Sarah Hess

Nothing to do with Gems
Life is food, art is life everlasting. A fullness in your belly and a
relief in your soul. As Marian Dioguardi, artist, says: I am an independently
trained painter. My favorite teachers are Ed Stitt, Janet Monafo, Paul
Rahilly and Barney Rubenstein, who have all contributed to my training.
I paint still moments inspired by simple beauty in a simple way. I am
a purist. Paint, panel, pallet knife. I am challenged by color and contrast,
form and shape and the way in which objects occupy two-dimensional space.
We are really trying to maintain a
great list of gem, mineral, and rock-related links here. You know how hard
this is to do. We need inputs from all quarters. So, if you can suggest any
links (including your own page!) we have missed (and I'm sure there are some),
. Your description of the links will make it easier still. Thanks.
