Just a Tiny Red Speck Made My Day!

One day while visiting San Francisco just before my move to the Bay Area, I was having a shopping day in Haight-Ashbury. I was standing right at that famous intersection when I discovered a garnet missing from my favorite ring. I was bummed but didn't let it ruin the rest of my visit.

Three weeks after my return to Glenwood Springs from San Fran, I noticed a tiny red spot on the white portion of my bed cover. It looked like blood at first, but I bothered to touch it and not ignore it. It was the missing garnet from my very special ring!

I went into the the rock shop High Country Gems & Minerals on 8th near Grand where I bought the ring, to show it to my buddy Patti the "Rock Star"and we both rejoiced together.

Patti has glued the stone back into my ring and it's as good as new again! She did an amazing job! Patti really rocks!

  1. As I was leaving work this evening, I discovered a stone missing from my ring. I believe it to have been a peridot. Bummer. Not sure if I can expect to find it again since I've been working at my school library.
