This whole "biggest emerald" stuff is kinda weird. They tried to sell it around here somewhere and it didn't go thru, for one, and it`s obviously not the clear type of stone you`d want for for a ring. And the "cutting" is odd in that the corners are rounded! What use is it?

Having thought about it, my prostitution comment was overly broad. Sometimes she's just being a puppet for the gemstone industry.

[quote">i'm not entirely clear on why, but many gemstones have a place in many certain types of lasers.[/quote">

I don`t know why either, so now I am compelled to find out why...

...that was interesting. Now I have a much better understanding of how lasers work. Gemstones work well as a lasing medium. Apparently you can theoretically get almost anything to work as a lasing medium and very many materials have been used, but a crystalline material doped with the right kind of material is efficient and relatively easy to get to work. The gemstones in lasers are artificial, of course.

Good info here

Funny how only males are saying it's a pointless dumb rock. Regardless of what you think of it, you will need to buy one of these at least once in your life for that special someone! :)


Most prostitutes prefer cash, or so I`m told.

And yes, I am saying that if you`re exchanging sexual favours for valuables, you`re being a prostitute. It`s not love, it`s a business transaction.
