Brian lives in Thailand, about 1 mile away from one of the largest tektite buying stations in Thailand. he regularly goes there to sort through new arrivals and see if there is anything special/unusual.
Brian has a huge tektite collection including Moldavites, Darwin Glass, Libyan Desert Glass and various tektites. His company A. A. Jewel facets gemstones. Brian specialises in faceting and carving tektites for many large tektite distributors. The contact with these tektite distributors allows him access to some of the finest specimens. If you have any serious enquiries about faceted tektites or wish to learn more or make contact then visit Brian's website at A. A. Jewel. You can be assured that the moldavites and tektites from Brian are genuine. Sadly there have been a number of fakes from Thailand, Hong Kong and China - this should not put you off dealing with the honest guys in Asia. I think the quality of Brian's tektites speak for themselves.
