|Crafts & Hobbies Information|
Personally, I have become fascinated with gemstones (precious and semi-precious stones). I am amazed at the array of colors and properties of these little treasures found in the earth. God created something truly amazing for us to look at and to adorn ourselves. Many of these tiny treasures are a fantastic investment. Purchasing a rare and beautiful gemstone that will significantly appreciate is an opportunity for everyone to enjoy and benefit. Making a return or to pass down through the generations, gemstone collecting can be a rewarding and profitable hobby.
I've been passionate about gemstones and collecting gemstones for quite some time now. My fascination started a couple of years ago and I've become an avid collector ever since. I am exhilarated when I make a new find of beauty or value. Of all of the things I've collected in my life, this has been the most rewarding. I'm also making investments that will continue to increase in value for myself and my heir's.
I've gathered quite a lot of information about gemstones and thought it would be wonderful to put all of this information into one source for new collectors so they wouldn't have to do all of the searching and gleaning I've had to do to become a more knowledgeable gem enthusiast.
I've created an E-book for new gemstone collectors. You will find information on the most popular gemstones, tidbits about each, colors and properties, the rarity and cost of certain gemstones, various charts and guides, birthstone & anniversary choices, investment recommendations, etc. All of this information will be at your fingertips for your education and enjoyment. You can even download the first chapter to see just a small portion of the information you will receive when purchasing the E-book.
Not only is gemstone collecting a hobby, but also an investment, because whenever you purchase a gemstone or piece of jewelry with precious gems and metals you are making an investment. An investment that will only appreciate!
