* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Gemstone Identification
« on: May 03, 2014, 04:14:01 pm »
I went to an antique/junk store last week and found some gemstone eggs, I couldn't resist getting them (certainly not at £1.50) but I have no idea what they are.

Here's a picture -



If anyone has any idea as to what they are I'd really appreciate it.

I'd say they look like marble.

I agree they're probably marble, and would add that they've probably been stained or dyed in some way. Really pretty though. They're just the sort of thing that would go well on my shrine. *grabby hands* Junk and antique shops have given me some of my favorite objects, but the sad thing is it's usually impossible to get any information on the objects.

KARMA: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
