Once on a lifetime

I thought hard about making this post as no one seems to use this section anymore,maybe Facebook and other media outlets have taken over the action in nz.however I decided to share this amazing find if nothing else to give some hope thro these covid lockdown times.i was shocked when this turned up in the scoop as this 16ct ceylon sapphire was looking straight up at me.16.4g of 18ct,it looked real in the scoop.just remember if I can do you can do it.
