What are the best sites for buying colored gemstones. I am most interested in amethyst and blue topaz but am open to other colored gemstones as well.
What are the least expensive colored gemstones. My budget is kinda tight.
If I was going to design a pendant that uses 2 ovals and 2 marquise stones which gemstone would provide the most consistency in color and is there any easy way to get well "matched" stones . . . in depth of color and sparkle etc or is this just too difficult?

This is my first attempt at using colored gemstones so any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Obviously do as much research as you can...

I bought two Garnets from Richard Homer at concavegems.com. Hes a great guy, and is an amazing gem cutter.
