By chance, my parents were in So. Cal visiting my wife and I over the past few days. We showed them the pictures and even had about 2 cups of rough gravel that we wanted to check out with them present. We showed them how it is all done and yes, we did find a sapphire in those last 2 cups! They thought it was great and they plan on ordering some gravel for the grandkids when they get back to Michigan.
We look forward to going through the faceting process with Rocky, and getting our next gravel bag soon.
