AUSTRALIAN OPALS FOR SALE

Great White sharks are guaranteed off Dangerous Reef, South Australia. So that's where our film crew hung out in 1984 on a chartered prawn trawler during production of the NBC mini-series, OceanQuest.

With great attack footage "in the can," we played tourist before heading home. We squandered our per diem on everything from stuffed koalas to Aboriginal didgeridoos. Except me. Mine went to opals from the famous Coober Pedy underground mine.

Actually, they aren't solid opals. They're known as triplets and consist of a dark backing, a slice of opal, and a quartz dome that protects the opal while letting the kaleidoscope of colors glitter through. Still, they are valuable, and come in myriad enthralling shapes, sizes and hues. Their renown play-of-colors in shifting light is mesmerizing.

For over three decades my little hoard has languished in a safe, until now, when I picked out two matched ovals to have earrings made as a gift. Local jewelry artist Marta Mata of Grecia mounted them in silver in her own workshop, and they came out fabulous. I may keep one triplet for a pendant, but the rest, all unmounted, are up for sale to an appreciative buyer. (Please click here to see separate article on Marta.)

The accompanying photos don't do justice to the stones. Their colors are ever-changing depending on the light and viewing angle. One must see them in-person to fully appreciate their beauty and jewelry potential. In length they range from 7mm ($45) for tiny ear piercings to 13mm ($150) and 18mm ($200) for regular earrings and bracelets to 20mm ($250) for a pendant.

To see them, please call Walt Clayton at 2444-4237 (home) or 6246-6015 (mobile), or send an email to waltclayton3@yahoo.com. I live outside San Isidro de Grecia on Calle Rodriguez at 1.9 km past the Bosque del Niño entrance.

Make the holidays special this year, and take some triplets to Marta to do her magic!

Vidatox 30CH Homeopathic Treatment

Original item Vidatox 30CH, is angiogenic and is a bio-therapy homeopathic treatment whose active principle is the (non-toxic) venom from the blue scorpion Rhopalurus junceus, found in Cuba. Vidatox works by stimulating the immune system. This provides pain relief and healing as it has anti-inflammatory and pain killing effects. The use of Vidatox 30CH prevents the undesirable symptoms produced by the cytostatic drugs and ionizing radiations to which patients are usually subjected.

Created by Labiofam laboratories, in La Habana Cuba, I go there and buy it direct from them being Cuban. I do this to offset the cost for my parents bottles. Vidatox medication is one of the most natural and homeopathic medications available. It's also an effective analgesic and antipyretic. Vidatox is a non-toxic product that is administered through oral consumption. It is taken simply under the tongue as sublingual drops.

There are many testimonies of people who socially endorse its properties.

The bottle last approximately just over a month.

1 or 2 Bottles: $85 or 45,000 colones each.
3 or 4 Bottles: $76 or 41,000 colones each.
5 or more: $70 or 38,000 colones each.

Delivery: Hand deliver to almost anywhere in the Central Valley for 2 or more bottles or send it by bus to any part of Costa Rica. Contact Jennifer: zenincr@yahoo.com

Book review by Ivy Penman

"Costa Rica – Tropical Gardening Companion" by Dr Karen Luedke

Dr Karen Luedke lives in Calle Rodriguez San Isidro de Grecia. She has lived and worked in Costa Rica since 2001 in veterinary medicine and cognitive neuroscience and is an avid gardener. Her extensive property is located at 5000 feet just below Bosque del Nino.

When I came to Costa Rica one of my retirement dreams was to have a tropical garden. I created a garden from scratch in New York (with the help of my husband Chris) and it was our pride and joy. It was a challenge and I foolishly thought it would be much easier here. After all “you just put a stick in the ground and it will grow.” How many times have I heard that? Unfortunately gardening is also a challenge here and it is quite different in many dimensions. The glossy books on sale show splendid plants but do not provide much in the way of growing instructions. Although altitude varies enormously in Costa Rica I have never seen this addressed in a plant guide till now. Most of the Viveros are located at lower altitudes and we all happily buy their plants without knowing if they will thrive in our properties. I have lost many plants simply through ignorance. High altitude can kill heat loving plants but it can also allow us to grow roses lilies and agapanthus.

This is an essential read for gardeners. Karen Luedke has written a splendid book – and the only one I have seen – which addresses the growing requirements of almost all the tropical plants we see around us. In addition to altitude the amount of sun/shade and watering requirements are discussed together with important issues such as mature size and season of flower. A comprehensive 130 pages the book is divided into sections such as fragrant plants trees and flowers flowers for cutting orchids herbs and shade plants. Plants’ medicinal properties are discussed together with old folk remedies. The book is illustrated throughout and written in a charming very readable style and is extremely comprehensive. In addition to the botanical names of plants and trees the local names are given and any other common nicknames. The book will allow you to identify all those plants flowers and trees you see around you. More importantly it will help prevent you from planting the wrong plant in the wrong spot. With this book you too can have green fingers and a garden like Martha Stewart! And ... you will love reading the book!

Costa Rica – Tropical Gardening Companion by Dr Karen Luedke. ebook $15. Print version $45.

To obtain the book contact Karen at prof.dr.luedtke@gmail.com
