I agree with Chrono, just because a gem has copper in it, that doesn''t mean it will glow. Likewise, this gem that gemlineinc sold some time ago had not one drop of copper. To me, that looks like a yellow green tourmaline with a touch of grey (gving it a slightly olive cast). I have to be honest, and tell you that I''m not pleased with it. However, keep a look out on their page. They sold an adorable 86 pointer Nigerian cuprian recently for around $300. It was prettier than that stone IMHO.Date: 4/7/2009 11:00:53 PM
I am looking at a green cuprian tourmaline. 3.17 cts, very well cut (by Dana Reynolds). I am worried that it may be too dark and have extinction, but finding a well cut, reasonably priced cuprian can be hard!
I have asked them to reserve it for me and asked a few questions.
That was me! It actually wasn''t sold to me as cuprian (they never had it tested) but it is nice and glowy.Date: 4/8/2009 12:07:14 AM
The small trillion is the one I was talking about. It was very pretty and affordable. He has some affordable pieces at times. I know a PS''er recently got a round cuprian stone from him, and it was highly included, but it was a really nice color and cut and size. The color was very beautiful and she got lots of compliments on it.
Am I rubbing off you?Date: 4/10/2009 11:45:19 AM
I''m getting more and more like Chrono. I think it will be ten years before I find the right stone for my LOGR.
