  2. What fun. Some I have never heard of - but others, like Jasper, confused me. The semi precious stone that I am familiar with is a red, not green! But looking it up I see it comes in a few colours - including green. Ho hum, you live and learn. Thanks, Heather.

  3. Thanks. It was very interesting. Some names I had heard but didn't know the colour.
