    Default soooon to be auctioned :)

    the last years i have been buying every pearl that i came across from mississippi river pearl to pinctada radiata found in greece hundreds of packages where delivered here and now im noticing quite some items are just laying here so i will put some on ebay

    prices will start from 1 usd auctions till some higher ones sometimes 1 bought a small pearl for 30 usd and payed 70 fedex cost so specially on the smaller pieces i am pretty sure there is not much win to sell these but with over 2000 pearls that i don't use i can better let some go instead of having them boxed up

    here is the picture of what i selected tonight, also i will try to put the collector pieces in groups so spondylus pearl together with a spondylus shell with blister pearl etc

    most are just collectable pieces like pinna spondylus quahog conch etc some small as in 2 mm some large as in 4 cm

    if someone is looking for a type also let me know i will (except for the abalone en conch) keep 3 of each type i have myself and the rest can go

    after that i will also put some thousands of opals and other gems on so i can actually see what i have after selling these instead of having everything boxed up

    hope to make some happy here soon

    haha 5 minutes after i put it on here member t berg already texted his list with what to take out

    its quite hard searching to the collection looking true thinking will i use this yes no, the abalone horn there was found at the chatham islands and the second pearl i bought, also there is a tridacna pearl that was one of the 5 pearls someone ones gave me that made me start working with them.
    the last years i have been growing so fast as a company that many things have priority now so this makes more sense i guess and as you see there is enough i will after everything is cleaned out and the collection normalized let a photographer take pro foto s of all the blister, pearls and weird species think its good to have them all organized and on displays instead of boxes full of boxes

    Even at a distance, it looks like a very special collection. I'm looking forward to more photos. Good for Tumutoa!

    Hey guys.. I did get a heads up but since my annual trip to Rarotonga is coming up I had to be modest.. dmj has such a wide collection it's not always clear how much he has stored away.. he's got a nose for it thats for sure..!

    I think I've seen many of these gems up close and they are simply awesome! good hunting everyone.. xmass in januari haha..

    I can't wait for you to start selling them. More photos as soon as you have them please, please, please. You have us all drooling. Have to save my pennies now. Do give us your site as soon as you are going to list them on eBay. A must see, a must buy. Looks like I managed to find some time to peruse the PG Forum at just the right time.

    Daniel,

    If you are getting rid of that lot because they are surplus to requirements, then I would love to see what you are not selling!!!
