The first time I heard about an old couple that went diamond hunting in parking lots, I knew there were more ways to make money than my scheming mind could imagine. By twelve years old I was taking Playboy magazines out of newspaper recycling bins to sell for a dollar each in school. I also sold ammunition to both sides in my brother’s paper-wad war, so I had a taste for the more unusual ways to make money. I still do. Here are some of the stranger money making stories I’ve collected.
About two years later, I forgot why, but I visited the forum again. I recalled seeing the discussion board from another perspective I couldn’t believe this is the same site.
Then there’s boulder opal which usually comes as a piece of opal connected naturally to a piece of ironstone or sandstone. The opal stone is undulating and may possibly not have any of the fire related to gem quality opal but when we take a look at it closely it has a pattern that might look like a seascape or a view of a mountain range or all kinds of other issues.

Should you get china, cotton, or leather next year? There just doesn’t seem to be any good answer. Your florist will be glad to suggest a dozen long-stemmed roses for your anniversary, since those cost him $1 to grow and sell for $150.
I love jewelry like that because not just is it inexpensive to purchase but once you wear it men and women ask questions about it and they wish to have a close up inspection of it. It really is an excellent conversation starter. You never get men and women asking you if they are able to they’ve a have a look at your topaz ring. They by no means say: “Oh, where did you get that ring?” But with a $40 necklace of inexpensive Koroit or Boulder Opal you’ll get strangers asking what sort of stone it is and where did it come from.
The point I want to drive home is, juggling too many balls at the same time might bury a real diamond amongst the sand. Jumping from one thing to another won’t help you going too far. If only I could realize it sooner than later…
