Thanks for the reply! Ah shoot, I'd asked Gene for the measurements but didnt think to ask about depth. What I have so far is: 5.751 mm diameter and 0.985 ct.
Thank you! I actually have it right now. I picked out a stuller setting online and will be sending it out to a jeweler on Monday. Also took the stone back out for some outdoor lighting photos.
Ooo can't wait to see! I've been burned lately with 2 underwhelming amethyst purchases so will be looking forward to a nice one!Well, I am thrilled to report that the amethyst from last Friday is gorgeous! OMG- it's so freaking purple! I'll attempt some horrible photos later.
My birthday is also in August. I've always wanted to keep an eye out for a nice peridot but somehow, the stone's color doesn't quite speak to me. I did pick up a periodot earring set a few years ago but never reach for them.Drats. I was hoping there'd be more OEC peridot so I can point my fiance in that direction to get them for my birthday.
Yes, it was such a relief when spinels because birthstones for August, too. That opens up a whole other range of colors!My birthday is also in August.

I think that’s a problem most of us encounter now and then. I have a mint garnet that looks incredible in person...but kinda sucky on camera. I can’t for the life of me figure out why. I hope your daughter’s phone captures the color better because I’d love to see more pics of this beauty.Well, I tried to take pictures of the amethyst and failed miserably. Why doesn't my iPhone see what I do????? I'm so confused. Anyhow, my daughter has the 'good" phone so I'll have her take pictures on Monday.
I’m glad the tsav sold too! It was so tempting . Now I just wish some would purchase the big mint garnet! I want that stone so badly!!I’m happy to see that the tsav sold. It was so hard to resist...that color AND my favorite shape. I’m hoping to find one that’s a bit larger one of these days.
