This is the Jeweler's shop of Bahir Umayr.

Bashir Umayr is the most skilled Jeweler in the Tahari Region. He is expert in all steps of the Jeweler's art. From the cutting or carving of gem's, to the skilled smelting and forging of all type's of jewelry, he is the best there is.

He also specializes in an art rare indeed, the carving of the sapphires of Scehndi into the shape of tiny panther's and many other animal's.

He is a Master Craftsman, and thus, charges accordingly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a list of the Gem's and Precious Stone's sold either by themselves or which he inset's in the carefully and skillfully crafted jewelry he forges.

 

 

 

One of her most famous and precious, exports are the small carved sapphires of Scehndi. These are generally a deep blue,but some are purple and others, interestingly, white or yellow. They are usually carved in the shape of tiny panthers,but sometimes other animals are found as well, usually small animals or birds. Sometimes however the stone is carved to resemble a tiny kailiauk or kailiauk head.

Emerald: Green gem, six of which are worth perhaps fifty silver tarsks.

"I saw the scabbard was set with six stones. Emeralds. Perhaps not of great value, but worth taking." Outlaw of Gor, page 176


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Opal, Common: One of two types of opals found on Gor, milky in color. The opal is worth much more on Gor than on Earth.

"Before Suleiman, now, there lay five stones, three sereem diamonds, red, sparkling, white flecked, and two opals, one a common sort, milky in color, and the other an unusual flame opal, reddish and blue. Opals are not particularly valuable on Earth, but they are much rarer on Gor; these were excellent specimens, cut and polished into luminscent ovoids; still, of course, they did not have the value of the diamonds."
Tribesman of Gor, page 92


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Opal, Flame: A much more unusual opal than the common milky sort, it is reddish and blue in coloring and more valuable than the same stone if sold on Earth.

"Before Suleiman, now, there lay five stones, three sereem diamonds, red, sparkling, white flecked, and two opals, one a common sort, milky in color, and the other an unusual flame opal, reddish and blue. Opals are not particularly valuable on Earth, but they are much rarer on Gor; these were excellent specimens, cut and polished into luminscent ovoids; still, of course, they did not have the value of the diamonds."
Tribesman of Gor, page 92

Ruby: Presumably the same as the earth stone, its cost is not mentioned but assumably it would be a precious stone.

"I thrust out the silver paga goblet, studded with rubies, and Telima, standing beside my thronelike chair, filled it."
Raiders of Gor, page 223


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Sapphire: Various shade's of blue, with a deep blue being more rare, the rarest and most expensive of all are black.

"You will note," he said, "that you wear a common slave leash and collar. There is nothing unusual or valuable about them. The collar, for example, is neither set with sapphires nor is it trimmed with gold. The leash, similarly, is of plain but sturdy material. Both devices are quite ordinary, but, of course, quite efficient."
Kajira of Gor, page 337

Sereem Diamond: A very valuable stone, sereem diamonds are red with white flecks.

"Before Suleiman, now, there lay five stones, three sereem diamonds, red, sparkling, white flecked, and two opals, one a common sort, milky in color, and the other an unusual flame opal, reddish and blue. Opals are not particularly valuable on Earth, but they are much rarer on Gor; these were excellent specimens, cut and polished into luminscent ovoids; still, of course, they did not have the value of the diamonds."
Tribesman of Gor, page 92
