Actually I have been wondering this for a long time now (around 6 years) and even after reading so much about the subject I still don't have any consistent or relevant answers, but you know what? I'm already kinda learning to live with that, getting used to it... I'm not playing the victim here or anything, just saying.edit on 23-3-2011 by kromaion because: (no reason given)

I have an uncle that is a manufacturing jeweler. A customer brought a piece of stone for him to work into a piece of jewelry for her. He said that he has never had so much trouble in his life as he did while he was in possession of that stone. His wife cheated on him and ended up leaving him, he encountered a lot of financial difficulty and he got laid up with an injury. When the customer picked up the piece, she told him that the stone had come from an Egyptian tomb.
He said it was remarkable how things changed for the better after the stone and the remaining pieces were out of his shop.edit on 23-3-2011 by butcherguy because: (no reason given)
