Lol yeah, I even put it under the sun to make it show, but then it got really bright and you couldn't see anything.
How much is 2,000 pounds? Lol like 4,000 dollars? That's a lot. My mom got it like 11 years ago, when the price of things wasn't so high.
Alien metal? Are you serious? lol Alrighty, then that's going away. o.o
its interesting about the line in the middle too, it reminds me of the cats eye effect of the rarest emeralds:
but the cats eye effect is super duper rare, there are some on sale on auction that start at £30,000+. my uncle has this durr najaf which has these black hair like structures embedded within the actual stone, like a mosquito in amber. he told me a whole story about how when imam ali used to go to cut his hair and trim his beard, some of his hair would fall in the river and over years become part of the vein of durr najaf, and the black things were his hair.
i went to a guy who knew about them and he said "no, its just a fossil. it takes millions of years to make the stone" uncles and their stories man!
What's the cats eye effect? Never heard of it before, but when I went to the ring stores they had these really nice yellow stones, I asked for the name and they said something about the sun. :/ lol
Haha, poor uncle. but that would've been so cool to have Imam Ali's actual hair.
Are they sold anywhere? Do you know?
