Like .25 carats. This seems to be virtually impossible to find - it''s what I originally wanted with my asscher spinel but no one can cut them that small. I know they exist. Any suggestions on where to look? I asked all the usual suspects when I wanted one custom-cut (Jeff, Barry, etc.) but no dice. Where do people find them if no one will cut them?


I''m not picky about color, either. I just want tiny stones. I want to bezel them into stackers and pendants.

Our local gem stores?

I bought a 4mm tsav and a 2.75mm demantoid over there....And there were thousands of stones to choose from...

Simply Sapphires has various lots of small sapphires. For some you have to buy the whole lot but for others you can just buy the amount you want.

Central and Louisiana-ish. That KFC on the SW corner...there is a Vietnamese restaurant right behind that and the gem shop right behind there. Also, the other one...on San Mateo? Liberty Gems and Minerals? I think?

And when are we going to GTG?

Facet Shoppe link has a number of stones that run pretty small.

I love teeny stones too. One of my favourite local dealers always has many interesting ones (I just got a a 0.15 or 0.2 bicolour tourmaline - very pale and the cutest little thing).

I thought of you when I saw this.

Awww, that is TOO cute! I would LOVE to find a bi-color something (maybe an ametrine) that''s teeny. Do you have pictures?

Fly Girl, I''ve never seen that site before! It has many possibilities - thanks!

You drastically over estimate my abillities to photograph a tiny, 2mm stone (it is probably close to 0.15, but the dealer''s scale wasn''t precise enough). I will try, though!
