Sure, it's not easy to drill such hard stones. The machine to make that is very special, expensive, working with ultrasounds and diamond tips.
I have several coloured stones myself, several pounds exactly, but I can't drill them, too.
Ericw, yes that is imperial topaz, I just put it in there to see how the combination with yellow-orange stones would look. the rest of the stones are fluorite, citrine, emerald, amethyst and garnet. To be honest I'm just doing this for fun, I still prefer the clear quartz/citrine/fluorite combinations. Just keep it simple, I guess.
