At first I was going to just post my nicer gems then thought, why not have a little fun doing it too? It's probably going to be very easy to guess but I missed out on a lot of the guess the gem games. I'll post a new one everytime the correct answer is guessed. I have trouble with my 2 cc garnets so they aren't here. I also omitted my learning stones which are very small (under 1 ct) and not of good quality. The diamonds will end up in the SMTR section of PS. Let the games begin!

Yup! Moonstone earrings with blue topaz in WG.

Wanna guess what type of moonstone?

Is my photography improving? I''m impressed with myself for taking much clearer and detailed pictures this time.

Oooo...pretty!
Is that the cobalt spinel you had mentioned before?
Although I thought you only had one...so maybe sapphires?

There are so many types of blue stones, I'm way out of my league, lol.

Sorry, not sapphires but still a good guess. My cobalt spinel is stll at AGL for grading and should be back in another week or two.

Hint: you are actually quite close.

Hehe, how am I close? Is it a blue spinel that just isn't cobalt-spinel?
(I like this game!)

Bing Bing! Yes, they are blue spinels. Both are around 2 to 3 ct. The rectangular is "native" cut and the right is from Barry.

Yes, you''ve already passed me up by a light year. Can you teach ME how to take pictures (and you just started)? LOL!! Gorgeous stones!!!

I like this one for the "carving" engraved into the stone. I thought it was a really neat thing to share on PS and received this as a gift from Barbara Smigel.

A trio of red stones. I had a really difficult time trying to get the colour right in the pictures.
