    I caught some of this last night, but they were doing morganite.

    It made me long for the days when we could get huge morganites for not a lot of money, and I wish I had done so then because it is one stone I do not have in my collection.

    Rock crystal is just a fine colorless quartz.

    Quartz kind of gets underappreciated, but when it’s clear like that it can be a fun stone with lots of light play and even some refraction.

    Rock crystal is most famous as an orb, specifcially for the Pools of Light jewelry so popular in the 1920s. If you’ve ever seen them, they’re mesmorizing!

    The old Rocks TV days! I’m so glad I have one huge morganite ring from them – I really should have taken the earrings too – regrets :teehee:

    Thanks for sharing what rock crystal is, Lady Nine! And I love that old black/white photo – pictures like that always make my imagination go wild like “what was she doing or saying that day?” :heart:
