Hello, bought as a loose stone. Colour change is distinctive, it's green in day light , in warm light it's brownish, red in led light, glows red in black light. I think l captured the colours. What do you think?

So now there are three accounts, about buying inexpensive used pieces/stones, wanting to know what they are, then usually arguing, when told, insisting the low quality stones are something valuable, all written with comma usage like this,and now even responding to each other. Just gonna sit back and grab some popcorn.

All three are buying poor quality rings in the belief their stones are magically not what they are and are valuable :(. All three seem to be spending large sums of money doing it, and have been suckered into buying equipment. I hope his or her family knows what they’re doing, and that they’re not spending money they don’t have :( :(

l really can't understand your frustration when it comes to loose, coloured stones, but this is not the right place to solve your problem. Spending money that don't belong to you is not your problem, family relationships neither. Maybe you should do something constructive- to broaden your knowledge regarding, coloured stones? Just an idea. l really don"t understand the part "spending money they don"t have" ? how is it possible? stay cool.

Creating multiple accounts is to ask the same questions over and over is trolling.

Fwiw, some help:

l really can't understand your frustration when it comes to loose (no comma) coloured stones, but this is not the right place to solve your problem. Spending money that don't (doesn’t) belong to you is not your problem, (nor are) family relationships. M(cap)aybe you should do something constructive [no hyphen] to broaden your knowledge regarding [no comma/] coloured stones. (Period, not question mark). Just an idea. l really don't understand the part (about) "spending money they don't have.” (period) H(cap)ow is it possible? I don't know what are you talking about— (em dash) 3 accounts? Obviously, your sources of information and your conclusions are invalid. I spent some time writing this replay (reply), and that's enough. Stay cool.

Good luck hawking those “raw garnets.”

thanks, the stone is really unique. l haven"t seen something similar on net. l am learning about synthetics stones and would like to know what method was used to produce this colour change.

Hi, there are a couple of colour change gems that change from greenish to reddish. Obviously the “big one” is Alexandrite but there is also colour change garnet.
Then we move into the lab grown material. There are different creations, some better (ie resembling Alexandrite) than others.
No one can judge accurately from a photo.
Depending on how much you paid and your inclination, you could send it to AGL and get a lab report.

When you come here and ask for opinions, that is what you get. Whether you agree or not, telling a seasoned member they need to educate themselves about colored gemstones just because they disagree with you is rude.

l didn"t dispute his/her opinion on the stone,(imo it is beautiful and valuable) but his/her approach to my post and me. I don't know who is seasoned member, but it doesn"t mean he(she) is allowed to insult those who and new and know less. I don"t know who was rude in this story. I judge people by their behaviour, not by title, membership, position,carat weight, etc. I didn"t have intention to offend anyone, let"s say it was selfdefence. Btw garnets are beautiful stones .I do hope l will not be in situation like this any more and that this will be the end of this discussion. sorry about English grammar, l am doing my best.

Whether or not something is valuable in the traditional sense of the word tends to not be a matter of opinion. This is a lab-created stone (either alexandrite or sapphire). It is not uncommon or expensive. If you like it, that's great, but the resale value to a knowledgable consumer would be around $20.

These hoity toity wannabe gemologists have years of buying and collecting under their belts and a wealth of knowledge. Perhaps before you start criticising others you should take time to educate yourself.

This is a really good example of somebody not understanding gemstones. The stone the OP posted is about as far removed from an aquamarine you can get. You also posted a specs garnet when somebody was looking for a wine coloured stone. I can’t help feeling you’re trying to cause a bit of a commotion.
