Holiday Season with Gemstones 2013

Hope that you all are enjoying this holiday season.  As I am running around, in the cold and sticking my hands in and out of my oven, and being cozy by the fireplace, I am reminded that certain gemstones are sensitive to sudden temperature care.  Opal is one in particular to keep in mind, they can crack easily.  Here is a list of gemstones to wear with care:

Blue topaz, different varieties of garnet, chrome diopside, tourmaline, demantoid, kunzite, iolite and turquoise.  It is always a good idea to ask questions regarding care when purchasing jewelry.

Here is to embracing family and friends as we go forth into 2014!
