It's really pretty and went for a very reasonable price. Did anyone here get it?

I''m little jealous. Ah well... but I''m happy for the lucky Pser :)

It''s one of my favorite gemstone colors

TL, I know you aren't that into spinels but maybe you just haven't you just haven't met the right one yet. Perhaps if you try one of the mahenge reds or pinks one of these days. You never know!

You''re probably right, since I''ve been so clouded by all my bad experiences, I just don''t have the aching desire for one.

We''ll just have to convert TL once we spot a good one for her.

Ask Gene if he has more rough.
he does have more rough... I may end up with one, yet! I am trying to give my hubby a little space to do this on his own. But knowing him, and knowing my controlling nature.. uh, we''ll see

He sure does. Lots more. I know this because I saw them last weekend and handled them in my hot little hands.

IN and Ice,
I really can''t say anymore because I don''t want to put any cutters/vendors in a difficult position. I''m so sorry...

As to spinels, who says I won''t get any that catches my fancy? I did just get a cobalt.

None. Not even a vendor picture.

I don''t have it right now because I sent it back to him and he''s sending it to the lab. I probably won''t see it for a few weeks.

Yes, I finally found a good looking cobalt spinel that isn''t overly dark, has NO gray and is a velvety sapphire blue colour. It''s a 2 ct oval and it took me years of searching (and returns) to find it. I brought it in to my usual local jeweller to scout out settings and his eyes bugged out when he saw it. He couldn''t believe it''s a spinel. He thought it was a blue sapphire and was puzzled why I had it since he knows I am spinel crazy person.

Thanks Ice. Still didn't see a red spinel there, though. The top of the page has a hot pink spinel that says new Mahenge spinel but no red spinel on that whole page. (?)

Wow - Chrono finds her blue spinel. I bet it is spectacular. Congrats Chrono ! !
