Belshaw's obsession with New England sapphires

I have recently been on a bit of a sapphire trip.

Growing up in a gold and precious stones mining area, stories of prospecting and discovery were all around me.

Then I had a girlfriend who told me all about the gully on her place where raw sapphires could be found.

A little later I started buying sapphires in Armidale, getting Evan J Lewis (a local jeweller) to make them into rings. The cost wasn't too high, and they made a nice local present.

Never let it be said that I am not an obsessive!
