Fake Stone Board
« on: May 06, 2016, 05:13:08 PM »

Some folks get a touch bent out of shape when discussing potential fake stones.
I'm going to say this loud and clear.  BE NICE.
It's OK to disagree with an ID on a stone respectably. 

Aside from that...
This is the board for stones that you feel are well made fakes or forgeries.  Found some dyed Howlite sold as Turquoise?  Post it here.
Found some Serpentine being marketed as Jade?  This is your area.
Think that obsidian someone sold you might actually be slag glass?  Yeah this is the spot.


Coincidence is G-d's way of staying anonymous.  -Rabbi David Abrahams

Sometimes when we are generous in small, barely detectable ways, it can change someone else's life forever. - Comedian Margaret Cho.

A man wearing a helmet defending his country should make more money than a man with a helmet defending a football!!!  (From an email message I received - so true!)
