It's from India so I can't buy and use this one, but can buy the Rosa Parks one at least.

Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

I was at the post office today so tried to buy some Rosa Parks stamps. I couldn't get any because they are sold-out! Glad to see there is so much interest in her commemorative stamps.

I Love Exotic Gem Rings !!

Postby yawares » Mon Feb 11, 2013 2:28 pm

Dear Members,

:heart: If you want your wife/girl-friend love you mucho..mucho...you should buy her exotic gem ring this Valentine's Day !!! Real flowers fade/wilt........gem flowers will forever bloom in her heart !!! :heart: A BEAUTIFUL SONG for you all:T

you ever really loved a woman : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2ReqwUFhrI" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

************************
green Tsavorite garnet..from Africa(with tiny Burmese rubies)
Image
Tsavorite or tsavolite is a variety of the garnet group species grossular, a calcium-aluminium garnet with the formula Ca3Al2Si3O12.[3] Trace amounts of vanadium or chromium provide the green color.

In 1967, British gem prospector and geologist Dr. Campbell R. Bridges discovered a deposit of green grossular in the mountains of north-east Tanzania [4] in a place called Lemshuko, 15 km away from Komolo, the first village. The specimens he found were of very intense color and of high transparency. The find interested the gem trade, and attempts were made to export the stones, but the Tanzanian government did not provide permits.

Believing that the deposit was a part of a larger geological structure extending possibly into Kenya, Bridges began prospecting in that nation. He was successful a second time in 1971, when he found the mineral variety there, and was granted a permit to mine the deposit. The gemstone was only known to mineral specialists until 1974, when Tiffany and Co launched a marketing campaign which brought broader recognition of the stone.

Dr. Bridges was murdered in 2009 when a mob attacked him and his son on their property in Tsavo National Park. It is believed that the attack was connected to a three-year dispute over access and control of Bridges' gemstone mines.

The name tsavorite was proposed by Tiffany and Co president Sir Henry Platt in honor of Tsavo National Park in Kenya. Apart from the source locality in Tanzania it is also found in Toliara (Tuléar) Province, Madagascar, but so far, no other occurrences of gem material have been discovered.

Neon Apatite ...from Africa

Spessartite garnet..from Madagascar
Image
Spessartine or spessartite garnet
The name is a derivative of Spessart in Bavaria, Germany, the type locality of the mineral. It occurs most often in granite pegmatite and allied rock types and in certain low grade metamorphic phyllites. Sources include Australia, Myanmar, India, Afghanistan, Israel, Madagascar, Tanzania and the United States. Spessartine of an orange-yellow has been called Mandarin garnet and is found in Madagascar. Violet-red spessartines are found in rhyolites in Colorado and Maine. In Madagascar, Spessartines are exploited either in their bedrock or in alluvium. The orange garnets result from sodium rich pegmatites. Spessartines are found in bedrock in the highlands in the Sahatany valley. Those in alluvium are generally found in southern Madagascar or in the Maevatanana region.

Spessartine forms a solid solution series with the garnet species almandine. Well formed crystals from this series, varying in color from very dark-red to bright yellow-orange were found in Latinka, Rhodope Mountains, Kardzhali Province, Bulgaria.

African Tanzanite..found only in Tanzania,Africa

Moldavite..gem from space..found only in the Czech Republic

Moldavite (Czech: Vltavín) is an olive-green or dull greenish vitreous substance possibly formed by a meteorite impact. It is one kind of tektite. It was named[citation needed] by Armand Dufrénoy for the town of Moldauthein (Czech: Týn nad Vltavou) in Bohemia (the Czech Republic), where it occurs. It is sometimes cut and polished as an ornamental stone under the name of pseudo-chrysolite.

Ajahn Brahm says that there are three kinds of rings when you get married:
  1. The engagement ring
  2. The wedding ring, and
  3. The suffer ring
Did you get the third one yet?

Kind of defines attachment, no?

I do not have the luxury of remaining on a distracted path.

Dear Yawares,

I want to say that I appreciate your posts, I think that they're very open. It's always good for practice.

I don't have any ring to give... but I like the triple gem.

I like reading your posts. Usually it's something simple & happy & I'm sure that a lot of us could use a bit more of that in our life. I'll serenade the missus for you & if the neighbours complain I'll blame one of the kids.
