Soul of the stones
ку-ку

I cleaned my blue topaz ring yesterday and I can't stop looking at it. It shines so brightly now, it reminded me how I fell in love with this ring - very simple silver ring with a beautiful blue topaz. It was a real master who hand-crafted this topaz, someone who could hear the song of the stone and release its soul, so it shines from inside. The cut is very unusual, so the darkness and the rays of light come out from the heart of the stone to the surface, mixing and yet different, like my own soul. I can't believe that I could have been too lazy to go on a three-hour-drive to that expo in Kansas City where I bought it four years ago. I can't imagine that a different jeweler could have gotten the stone and killed it by cutting it wrong. I have seen all too many stones dead, murdered by a clueless hand. I am lucky the world is the way it is...
