    Hello all,

    Well today I received a copy of the acclaimed “Sharing the Rough” documentary. Although I had the opportunity to view this extraordinary work locally here in Michigan I have to say that I enjoyed it just as much here in the comforts of my home. I am certain I will lose track of the number of times I will watch it. If you haven’t seen this piece you are truly missing out. Consider taking the time to order a copy for yourself or someone you love. If you love gems as much as I do you will not be disappointed.
    You can order this masterpiece @

    Thankful for the work of Orin, Roger and All
    Sincerely, W@rd

    Thanks for the review. Have you seen the mining at Madagascar?

    No I have not. More information please! Is this also a documentary? If so, do you have a link?

    One of the best parts was watching master faceter Roger Dery at work.

      I follow people on google+ who were sharing of some of the atrocities taking place today in the jungles of madagascar searching for sapphires. There isn’t any one documentary on it but here is a video, I just searched about the topic.

    I agree Alan. What a thrill to watch a Master at work.
    Thanks for the posting Scott. I do a bit of searching myself on youtube for videos relating to gems. Never viewed this one though. I love having youtube available on the big screen. My eyes aren’t what they used to be.

    <del datetime=”2016-12-19T11:49:28+00:00″This is for you Scott. If ever in the western U.P. keep your eyes open for some of this Smokey. I love the honey/coppery flash from this. Found this in some fresh road gravel.
