Hey, Fiona. Just in case you didn't quite catch what Yvonne is saying about "knockoffs" I'd like to try to clarify. If I understand correctly, she is meaning that if your stone (or any stone for that matter) has "chipped" or broken, the place where the chip or break occurred must develop a patina to match the rest of the stone. I have a few stones that I've found around where I work that are really nice, but for a few chips (from kids throwing them most likely). I plan on burying them for many years (???) to help develop a patina where the chips occurred. I know that in the english we speak here in the US, "knockoff" means a forgery or a fake. I'm assuming the meaning is the same there in Scotland too??? I'm not trying to imply that you didn't catch that, just don't want you to be thinking you were perhaps swindled. Nice stone selection from what my rookie eyes can see! I think my favorite is the "abstract tree" Smile Take it easy.
