sounds rather like a color stone snob......and i agree with it completely. i checked out the spesssartite and i found them to be rather ugly.....even the cabachons aren''t high quality.Date: 2/15/2007 12:58:45 PM
At a quick glance, most of the stones appear to be very dark; not stones I think worth setting into jewellery. However, that said, it appears that you are paying for what you are getting. So if you like the overly dark or extremely washed out stones, then the price reflects that accordingly.
