Re: Looking for phone number for Affinity Gems

@qualityshopper  You should know that Sleeping Beauty turquoise is neither rare, valuable nor highly desirable.  What was mined in the last 20 years of the mine's existence was so chalky and of such poor quality that it had to be pumped full of resin in order for it to be cut and polished.  You will never find a sample of it in the collection of a serious turquoise collector.  It was hyped by and is the darling of TV shopping channels because nobody ever returned it because they dislike the matrix pattern.  Neither you or anybody else will ever know the true source of your stones unless they are destroyed for testing. 

 

If you called the manufacturer, got someone who spoke English and asked if the stones were really SB as advertised, what do you think they'd say?
