I got these from the gem show today. The 4.02 carat mint merelani is a wonderful medium light tone of bluish green. It is more blue than these photos, taken in indirect sun. However, my camera has issues when taking photos of green gems. The mint merelani has one small needle inclusion, but it's not distracting at all. I love it!! The mahenge trillions are a very pretty hot pink and I'm looking to have them surround some other stone in a multi-stone ring. They're around 5 mm each and a half carat, and they have strong fluor. I know the mint is a heart, and hearts are not loved here, but it was such a fine color, I couldn't pass. You rarely see them this saturated, and blue, and large (although my photos do not show all the blue). That is a hair on the stone in the second photo by the way.
