Sapphire Miners Collect the Unusual Stones

     When owners of sapphire mines daily see unusual rocks come across their piles, they start collecting. Wherever there is gold there is hematite. All kinds of unusual hematite can be found at Blaze N' Gems Sapphire Mine out of York. 

     The hematite jug Blaze had was full of the unuusual looking specimens. Sometimes they resemble body parts like a kidney or a liver. I love the weight of them and the deep, dark purple color. They are heavy like a bullet or a shot.  

     It's a wonder what you can compare and find interesing to talk about when it comes to the search for sapphires, because often it means talk of other stones as well or the breakup of friendships over stones. We've seen and heard of that. Stones, rocks and hematite are attractive for sure.
