Happy Birthday Eric Provus

Today Eric Provus turns 91.

If you ever thought you were too old to start or that you missed the boat; well check out Eric Provus.

This video was taken last Thursday morning at the Inverell Lapidary Club. Uncle Richard and I went down to check out my Uncle Lincoln’s gem collection, now partly on display. Uncle Richard gifted the gems of his brother to the club and this was our first visit.

Gemstone collection of Lincoln A. Ward donated to the Inverell Lapidary Club.
Uncle Lincoln was a skilled gem cutter and spent a lifetime collecting these treasures. He was also a keen member of the Inverell Lapidary Club until sadly, he turned blind.

You’ll need to watch the video above to appreciate the significance of these photos.
