No not that club! The Sphene Club. :Happy1:

I asked for your opinions on another thread about a half carat Sphene ring I had in my basket but it's my Anniversary today and guess what hubby bought me? http://smileyshut.com/smileys/new/love14.gif Yep a Sphene ring! So he does listen to what I talk about after all!

Here it is:-
http://www.gemstv.co.uk/shop-detail.jsp?product=125797] (http://www.gemstv.co.uk/shop-detail.jsp?product=125797)

As you can see it's much bigger than the 39 one I had in my basket so you can see who's the generous one in this house! It's absolutely gorgeous. The fire is fab and you can see oranges, yellows, reds etc. even in normal daylight. I know what you've all been raving about now!

He also bought me a couple of "fillers" :-
This is lovely. The colour of the citrine is really vibrant.

And (hope nobody minds me posting this here) from the "other side":-
Not big but the colour of this stone is fab. A real Caribbean Sea colour.

Hubby say's there's still a parcel to arrive and should have been here so there's even more to come! Can't wait! Now I remember why I married him 26 years ago!

I'm a very happy bunny today http://smileyshut.com/smileys/new/love15.gif (http://smileyshut.com)

PS: I'm an honourary member of the club only by virtue of having several loose stones of sphene, but not set into gold - yet! I saw a smashing ring offered yesterday that was full of fire and would have had it like a shot had finances permitted.

Happy Anniversary Klosblue - enjoy wearing them; they're scrumptious :)

(where have all the other smilies gone? I think I saw a thread about them - better go look-see)

07-07-2008, 04:13 PM
What a lovely hubby you have Klos. I can see why he is a keeper! lol He did well choosing these pieces as a surprise; they are fab. You managed to get a corker of a Sphene if you're seeing all the different colours in normal daylight. I love the Apatite too - beautiful colour.

Hope you both have a very happy Anniversary and can't wait to hear what is in the next package.:)

a man who THINKS like a woman re: filling the basket to make use of the P&P, *Darlene walks away shaking her head and thinking some girls have all the luck* lol

Sorry Klos, happy belated anniversary! Has your other parcel arrived?

Your sphene is an absolute stonker, very pretty indeed and I love the citrine too, both would be most welcome at Basket Manor. :)

Good to see you're still getting 'fillers' after 26 years of marriage. :D

Well the other package hasn't arrived. :Sad2:

Hubby received an email last Wednesday saying the order had been dispatched but still hadn't arrived this morning. He phoned the couriers as per the details on the email and they said they had the details on the computer but hadn't received the package from Gems yet so advised him to phone them! He phoned and was told that it can take 4-5 working days after it's dispatched before it will arrive so it should be here by Friday! They also say they had been having a 4 day mini stocktake which had taken longer than expected.

Now correct me if I'm wrong but if you receive an email on a Wednesday saying "your order has been dispatched" and they say 4-5 working days then you've got Thursday (1), Friday (2), Monday (3), Tuesday (4), Wednesday (5) so where did Friday come from?!! :Thinking2:

What pi**es me off is that I actually stuck up for their new delivery service!!
What a sucker! :Angry2:

I'm sure I heard someone (Liv?) say yesterday that 'they' (not Gems, just that 'they' that gets everywhere) were trying to re-name sphene. I think that would be a great shame - it's a strange little word and not really like anything else. :)

09-07-2008, 09:52 PM
that would be criminal to re-name sphene they just cant can they????????:eek:

10-07-2008, 06:24 AM
oh yes they can lol

look how diaspore has become zultanite :D
