Here''s a quick pic of a few new sparklies that arrived today :)

The hurried photo doesn''t really do them justice, hoping that the sun comes out this afternoon for better photos.

Pretty! So who's who? Is the EC a spess?

ETA: Maybe an iolite and a pair of blue spinels?

Oooh, nice stuff. We need details. Is that the California spess that barry had? I so want one of those.

Thanks ladies!

The pic doesn't do the stones any justice at all!!!

On the left is from TGT and is a radiant cut purple zircon 2.52ct
Next up is the BB 2.56ctw blue spinel pair
On the Right is the BB 1.49ct Iolite
Lastly the California BB .68ct Spess

The Zircon is a gorgeous color and lively, the blue spinel pair surprised me-from the pics on the website, they looked like they had a purple undertone and IRL, they haven't shown that side of them to me yet, the Iolite is a gorgeous color changer-almost a royal blue to a bright purple to a bluish purple, lastly the little Spess---it is a gorgeous color, nothing like the dead looking pic I took, it is so bright and a beautiful cut.

Still no sun, just dark and cloudy! Maybe I will wait until we have some sun :)

Ahh, so I guess you won''t be returning that iolite ;-)
At this point, I think I will be keeping it-it is really lovely and a nice size-but I will let you know if I plan to sell it :)

Looks like you had a bit of a spree at ACS! I can''t wait to see more of the spess. Is the iolite the same stone that''s in your setting thread?

Also, since you''re captive, can you say more about the stone in your avatar? ''Tis lovely, a rainbow in a cut-cornered box.

I think I have a sparklies disease!


The spess is a little fireball and that is the iolite in my setting thread.

The stone is my avatar is my tourmaline from Rick and I loved this one of his pics :)

Thanks!!! We are actually in the midst of freezing rain, turning into a full blown blizzard this morning-so NO sun today, it looks like maybe tomorrow. But, we''ll see what I can do today :)

Here is the blue spinel with a few of the different colors I see, there is an almost greenish blue sometimes that I haven''t captured on camera yet.

Today is not my day for pic taking either, all of the pics look dead and lifeless-no sparkle and not clear-who knows, sorry!

Cool stones! I''d love to see more pics. What is the light source for the first pic?
Thanks! Pics are being resized. The 1st pic was natural light, a dark and cloudy day.

Here are a couple bad shots of the spess, it doesn''t show brown IRL at all, it is a bright-juicy orange color. So who knows why I can''t capture it at all today---by the way, be prepared for fingerprints on all the stones from todays photo shoot---ahhhh.
