Re: how much are you paying for gas in your area?

4.69. chicago. thankfully, we sold our car when we moved here and don't really think about it. we do zipcar, though, and wonder if they're going to raise rates to compensate for the higher gas prices. SOMETHING is going to have to happen [they pay for gas].

Finewater seafoam tourmaline

Hey guys, I owe you lots of pictures! But since it gets dark at 4pm, and I usually don't get home until 7pm....well, you get it. I got Gary's new tourmaline [http://www.finewatergems.com/new-gemstones.html]. I don't know if I like it, though. It's too green for me. It's really, really pretty. I thin...

For those of you who have a Gene Star 80 cut stone...

I got a totally amazing garnet in Gene's Star 80 cut [no pics of my own yet, sorry...his is attached].

My question -- how did you set your stone? Is it difficult to bezel because of the edges?

I need setting ideas. I have so many but can't decide. Thoughts?
