    Gorgeous, Frida!!! I wish Lima would put dyed/treated/natural by ALL their stones. Are you guys listening?? I know even you don’t always know because it is up to the gem people who sell it to you, but we would all like to know. There, I did my part. :)

    Thank you my friends :D

    ‘Cours it’s hard for lima to know if the dealers/gempeople don’t know, that I completly understand ;) Hopefully there are some dealers that know ;)

    One could use these; block, irradiation, pressed, manmade, oiled, dyed, stabilized, heated, enhanced, natural and probably more :P

    Frida, lovely combo. I’m all for using the treated stuff for fun jewelry and holding out for the untreated, real gemstones for our important pieces.

    There are so many great picks tonight but this really caught my eye. Tanzanite is one of my very favs (purple)and everything else is beautiful and such great composition as well.

    Thank you Blooming Ideas, J Shane and Granny :D

    J Shane I’m totally with you,thats why I so appricate when I know the treatment and background, of the stone :)

    Nice pick Frida! The tanzanite you’ve used is indeed natural. You’re correct that it can be difficult to know for sure, since we’re not present at the factory when the rough is cut, but we do whatever due diligence we can on our stones and we only work with sources we trust. We’ve dropped a lot of suppliers over the years for not being forthcoming about the nature of their products.

    Regarding more product information on our site, this is one of our BIG priorities for early next year, so stay tuned for that.

    Thanks for asking your question in the form of a fresh pick. That was a first!

    Thank you LB and you sure Rock :D

    I just stumbled upon this looking at past chatter. I am in love with the colors. Would also love some tanzanite but its a little out of my budget. And how did I miss that flying bird pendant? Beautiful.
