You Never Know What to Expect ! -Letter from Jonathan Bartky

Posted by Jonathan Bartky on

AFRICA !!! A new frontier. Really, When I was a kid, all my reports in school would be on Africa. African animals, cultures, etc. So, it is no surprise that being in the Rock and Mineral Business, that I would gravitate to stones from the African Continent. When I worked as a Head Nurse at a state Psychiatric hospital, most of the staff that worked at the hospital were from Africa. I would typically show up at special occasions wearing the local garb from that country and they always appreciated a "Mzungu" embracing their cultures. I even learned a little Yoruba, "Kilo n sele " ! (What's Happening). Many times I have been invited by my African friends to visit their country of origin. Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana, etc. But, wouldn't you know, I end of befriending folks from East Africa. Next thing you know, KARIBU, WELCOME to Tanzania. Hakuna Mattata, Simba, Rafiki. All East African. Yes, Swahili, the language of East Africa. So, I am very fortunate to be able to offer a wide variety of stones from that region of the world.                                      Sincerely,                                                                                                          Jonathan Bartky
