I’m going to share with you my “secret” gemstone seller. Her name is
Szarka, and she sells at her ebay store “turquoise magpie”
Szarka is immensely helpful, has absolutely wonderful prices, and ships quickly. She has the nicest gemstones I’ve seen. And she tells you what you are buying. She’s well versed in the different types of stones, and will check her beads(as in, test them with acid, heat, stress) to make sure that they are what the wholesale vendor claims they were. You can buy from her with complete confidence that you are getting what you are paying for.
If you are looking for gemstones, definitely check out her store!
