It made me look different at 'manmade' gems. I'm not quite sure where I stand on them but I have to admit that they are a more ethical choice in a lot of cases. I think they deserve their place and it will be interesting how people will look at this in the future.
I have a couple large pieces of Silicon. Silicon is an Element and is not found by itself.... She is always combined with something else.
Another Element is Oxygen. Oxygen is something we all know about because we need to breath it in to our lungs with each breath to stay alive.
Next try combining these two Elements to produce Quartz
I can't do it. Who can?
