So Dan posted some stuff yesterday. Is anyone trying to buy any of the new stones? I''m broke and can''t even think about it right now. But not much catches my eye anyways. Wrong colors or wrong shapes on the good colors! :)

There''s some pretty stuff, but nothing I have to have. The pink/bi tourms and the EC sapph are pretty things. The opal might be really neat, but I''d kinda want to see it first, I''m not familiar with faceted opal.

Nothing caught my eye really. The aqua seems nice and a maybe on the colour change tourmaline (but I would like to see both colours). I guess I am tired of seeing so much spess around (although I have several, including the one on my finger).

I saw a few things I liked. That aquamarine for one. I also liked the opal and the peachy tourmaline. But I''m not buying right now

Linda- is that the blue green oval that you bought?

And ditto Sonomacounty, anyone know anything about Jelly opals? Do they look like yellow moonstones? I can't seem to find much on the internet.

Yes that is the one. He said it was teal (and that is my favorite color in the whole wide world)


He also said in daylight, it is beautiful and has flashes of green.

I just looked up jelly opal. It said it is a very transparent opal, almost as if it was suspended in gelatin.

There are a lot of great stones there. I need to have a jewelry sale so I can get something new.

Congrats Linda! That will be a lovely sapphire :). Pics when you get it!!!

Chrono-did you buy that opal? I thought it was lovely too!

The octo spess is headed my way :) I had been looking at it since he put it up a couple weeks ago, but already have a beautiful spess from Dan so kind of put it out of my mind. But then began thinking it would look nice in the baguette halo setting I posted a while back-here''s to hoping it fits!!!

Stepcut, That is a gorgeous Spess. The way you want to set it is going to be a knock out


Thank you for the congrats on my sapphire. I hope the color is beautiful too.

No, it wasn''t me; I was too late. I was thinking of getting it as a fun playstone.

Congrats on the octo spess. I can''t to see your pictures and read your review. I''d like to know how accurate Dan''s new pictures are.

Thanks all, I am super excited to see the stone IRL! I am hoping that it is not too dark to see the lovely cut on it!!! If it does fit my baguette halo setting, I will be setting my other spess from Dan into a pendant. I will try my best with the pics too :)

Chrono-bummer on the opal, I was so tempted by it too.
