Warnings or dangers Fake stones

In our way from the Valley of Kings back to Luxor, we stopped in a stone factory with some appealing statues in its front, where we bought a wonderful head in lapis-lazuli (not cheap).

As a reward, the owner offered my kids two necklace of small beads, also in lapis-lazuli – he said and… it seemed. 

They had it on when diving in the pool, back to the hotel, and suddenly… the miracle! The lapis-lazuli beads were gone, the kids had only the string on their necks. Of course, the beautiful beads were… plaster. 

Be aware!
