Sorry, that's not how they should act.mborda|1456921108|3998368 said:He was an idiot because he thought it was a tanzinite. Then he walked away from me, leaving me standing in the middle of the store. So....are we done? His answer for most questions was "I dunno". You could tell that because it wasn't a diamond, he could have cared less.
Yep. You can't expect someone who likely only deals with diamonds on a regular basis to know everything about colored stones. At first glance it very well may look like Tanzanite. Spinel isn't as well known of a stone. Plus (just to play devil's advocate) he wasn't going to make money off of reading the RI for you, which is probably why he didn't want to spend a bunch of time helping you. Not that that excuses the guy being rude.Chrono|1456924794|3998400 said:I'm sure if you paid for the services of a reputable gemmologist, he or she will be more professional and give you correct answer, which probably will not be what you want to hear though.
