The mines are a hard place to work in, toiling all day to get the perfect gems. Your work however isn’t within the mine it is with the trading of gems and with your uncanny ability to gain and trade before they decrease in value you have begun to get quite a name for yourself. All you need now is one or two more deals and maybe the nobles you have had your eye on will pay you a visit.
