Hello world!

Watch this site — coming soon, a new place to buy fine designer gemstones online!

Hi — I am Bob Edwards, owner and operator of Chromis Designs, a gemstone supplier located in San Francisco, California.  Over the next month or so, I will be developing this site into an online store featuring selections from my collection of fine colored stones.

I have some beautiful faceted and cabachon stones waiting for you, including a large selection of gorgeous Nigerian pink tourmalines custom-cut from rough I bought in the late ’90s when the first material from the big strike in the Ibadan region was just coming to market.  That strike played out in under two years, but while it lasted, it produced some of the prettiest pink and red tourmalines around, with great clarity.

I have always been attracted to unusual colored stones and fancy, designer shapes and cuts, and will be featuring many such stones here.

I’ll be posting some sample pictures in the next few days — please check back and see what’s coming.

Here’s a teaser…
