A pre-loved YAG cut by Bryce Hoemann bought from @SouthernGent, and it is gorgeous, thank you!!!

I cannot capture the eye-popping blue green with my phone's camera, photos do not do it justice, hey ho!

Gary had a cushion YAG in his latest mail drop, and it was gone by the time I checked it out.

I hope a PSer has snapped it up.

The color is less sapphire like and has much less purple. It gives me a sky blue topaz vibe, except a bit darker than that.
Very very interesting. can’t remember if I wrote about ‘topaz vibe’ publicly about a blue synthetic not that long ago.
gonna just take it to mean I’m not alone!!

Gene just posted this gorgeous red lab spinel. It’s sold already :cry2: but I’m hoping a PSer bought it.

I seriously love this one so much, and want to see an IRL picture!

Also, has anyone purchased the mint or neon yellow YAG from gene? There isn't any for sale right now apart from custom projects, but just wondering how it looks.

Got this lab blue spinel from Gene this week. While it occasionally reminds me of a topaz in colour, it also looks like a nicely saturated cornflower blue sapphire. I wanted the more electric blue (bit of a miscommunication), but this actually looks more like a natural stone to me, and was too pretty to send back (plus, it fits my setting). So, I’ll keep it and also get a big “electric” one! Please excuse any fingerprints. 406B58E4-C181-4ACA-9D6F-852044731D84.jpeg 938C3613-0CFD-4F93-935A-0242BC077C75.jpeg 2A8F7FEE-5FCB-49FA-AEFD-3D48E62DA4B5.jpeg 6F4543CB-AB73-4D42-8FB3-D587A4C3C74F.jpeg

Oh wow! That color! And he does such a beautiful job with cutting...that last pic is swoon worthy. :love:
I‘ll be interested to see how the electric blue compares.
