Could this be referred to as an obsession?
A twelve step problem?
Or a healthy hobby?
Do you think I have enough?
Should I lock away my credit card?
But just look at all the beauties. Quietly waiting for their chance to shine. Sitting neatly in their holding cells. I can't wait to get at them but perhaps I should hold off buying any more until I have used the ones I have?
So all of you lapidaries out there, you masters of stone cutting, you revealers of beauty ... stop it!
happy diamond jubliee your majesty.
that's her, waving at me.
right back at yer ...
i bet she doesn't have a gemstone addiction - oh, wait, maybe she does.
