    extremely rare one of a kind stone

    This is something extremely rare and beautiful. I have searched for years around the world and was always one rumor away from finding it. Once every four or five years I would see a photo or read and article with a little tiny mention of it, never any details. a few months ago I finally got in contact with a guy who knew a guy who was sleeping with some other guys sister........... and so forth, who owned a mine in a country formerly known as b???a. We corresponded and after working out some trades and creative financing, they cut me a custom made stone out of solid jadeite. It came while I was in the hospital and nobody told me about it. I found it today sitting on the floor with a bunch of boxes ready to go out to the garbage. I opened it and thought I might have another heart attack it is beautiful. I haven;t used it yet and probably won't. It is a nice mottled green, matt finish estimate 10k-12k if you can measure that. 200mmx 50mmx 25 mm. Here is the kicker, I am going to have to sell her to pay for my meds. Deep sigh! $450 shipped. You probably will never find one in your lifetime and neither will I. Deep sigh well here you go, new never used.

    Completely off topic here.. but i feel for you man. Healthcare in the US seems like a pile of bull.. but perhaps i'm just getting "princessed" by our government.. as much as we whine about ours.


    One sexy stone, one really, really sexy stone. As the person above, extremely wowed by it.

    Can I make a handle out of it and then sharpen my other knives on it in a pinch?

    Wish I could help you out by taking that beautiful rock off your hands. It's a bear that you go through all that work to get it and have to give it up right away. I really feel for you, hell I really feel for me for not being able to get it
