HAHA too funny!
Hopefully the guy who won it figured they''d probably just get a golden tourmaline?

What person would even bid on that? It wasn''t even a good photoshopping job. Horrible!

What on earth is that thing? I think my 6 year old can photoshop better than that.

WTF?! Does the winning bidder actually believe there''s a RED DOT in the middle of this stone??

The offending stone:

Maybe the seller also colored a circle on the winning stone - as not to confuse.

Thats the strangest thing I've ever seen! And the seller has 100% positive feedback?
ETA. Okay not the strangest thing I've EVER seen, but certainly the strangest Ebay gemstone listing!

Brilliant!!!! That's given me the best laugh ever!

Anybody noticed that it's also described as a Paraiba Tourmaline?!

What? A paraiba on top of being a tourmaline? WOW! A very rare stone indeed.
The colour looks like it''s photoshopped or BE treated too.

Okay, okay, it was me. I was helping my dad on his sapphire search when I found this and just had to have it. I convinced him that my mom really needed this stone instead. It''s EVERYTHING she''d ever want in a stone.

Zoe,
So when you receive it and don''t see that perfect red circle in the center, you can return it for a refund and give him a bad review for the stone not matching the description.
