As I sat riveted to the movie, little did I know that one of the stones in that box back home on the kitchen counter contained a large dark blue piece of rough topaz. As Le Coeur de la Mer went from person to person on the big screen, I never thought I would be wearing one just like it.
The movie was very powerful and emotionally draining and we talked about it all the way home. Back in the kitchen, we examined the contents of the box and found the stone.
We looked at each other and knew it was going to be mine. We started a search for detailed photos. Good photos were hard to come by at first, then some postings paid off and some wonderful people helped make it so. Especially Rachel from England, thank you.
