He sure has a lot of spess rough! Very nice color!!


Wasn''t someone looking for something red earlier today? This might be too big, though...

A very deep red! I wonder if it was cut that way to lighten the stone?

interesting thought! It certainly is on the deep color side. Would the big table lighten it?

I would think it would if it windowed the stone, I don''t know otherwise.

Icekid, when are you getting yours?????

Wow, that looks exactly like my cuprite!!

I would call that a brick red color.

Wow, that stone is a whopper and really pretty. Karee are you going to purchase that one???


That would make a beautiful pendant.

I think having a large table would let the colour shine though. It would not window if the pavilion facets are done correctly and I''m sure Dan will make sure it (windowing) doesn''t happen.
