by mellowyellowgirl » Jun 17, 2018 Hi Folks! So I sit around and drool at your rubies, crazy bright red and pink spinels and sometimes lament that I wish I'd been in the coloured stone game 15 years earlier! Anyways this got me thinking about gems that you feel you snapped up at just the right time for a bargain. No need to think about resale value as I believe resale is a different story. I am more interested in gems that you feel were personally a good score for yourself and you might find hard to buy again in the same shape/size/colour/price! They may not necessarily be your most favourite or prized if that makes sense! I have three! 1. My 2.94 carat chrysoberyl 2. 6.something carat tourmaline 3. 1.something heart ruby These 3 I feel like I would have trouble finding again for similar prices.
