    I, personally - just speaking for myself here - would love to have an emerald the size of an apple. Anyone else?

    I would love to have anything that was authentically Elizabethan (Tudor geek here), the enormous emerald would be a side bonus.

    I'd settle for the thumbnail-sized Stafford intaglio. Not picky.

    Per the Guardian snippet above, I think that, in the next life, I'd like to come back as "an enigmatic figure known to them as Stoney Jack."
