    Threads close automatically if there are no new posts in 6 months.

    Semper and Adamas are gorgeous. :)

    RE: Semper and Adamas, now 2 years old

    Thanks for updating, they look great. What are their sizes now?

    Can mod help to open the old thread? I would prefer to see updates from 1 single thread if possible as well.

    The link is in the first Post. I can't do much from my droid, but when I get back to my desktop, I'll see if its possible re-open the old thread and merge the two.
