Greetings from Thailand

Sawasdee krub - "hello" in Thai. 
There is still some softness in the gemstone market here in Thailand.  The grenade in the bank last week in the gem district in Bangkok hasn't helped the mood.  There are not many buyers like me here - ones that pay right away.  The cutting factories I deal directly with are keen to do business.  I have been able to buy sapphires and rubies at fantastic prices. I have also purchased a production of zircons that I excited to show, along with some other great gemstones.
