I am still waiting for my supernova Namibian tourmaline from Barry. He sent it right after the drop that started this thread, but this postal strike is killin' me!
Thanks!! I really need to take better pics outside or something. My room is turquoise and dark so it's not ideal for pics. The spinels glow a beautiful reddish hot pink, but you'd never guess from my awful pics.
The pink stone is a rubellite tourmaline cut by John LeBourgois, 3.something carat asscher. It was supposed to be in a ring but now i'm debating if it'll be better as a pendant.
Bright green stone on bottom row is chrysophrase, i got that from Barry as well. It's carved but obviously the details are lost. It's going in a bezel as an index finger ring.
Fingers crossed for you!! hope it gets there soon. Barry's cuts are amazing!
eta: the barry and gary spinels look most like the bright part of the top stone in the attached pic. all the time!
