    Friday before work Gold find!

    Hi friends, I found this Gold at a garage sale. I was the first one there, so I bought all of the jewelry, then rushed to work. The ring with the blue stones I had placed it on the plated pile, as I had not found any markings. This morning I took it to a jeweler, and he confirmed as Gold, along with three additional earrings. Does anybody have any idea what those stones are called? Thank you as always. I appreciate it.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Good little haul. I believe the ring is set with Persian turquoise to be specific.

    Another material the stones could be is dyed howlite. It is used in place of turquoise. A jeweler could tell you for sure. It's almost impossible to tell from a photo.
