Ha ha, I just found the other thread. Do you think it will be too dark? Makes me wonder too because the whole colored stone thing is new for me. I have purchased one other stone before and it ended up being a little on the dark side. Beautiful but dark...

You can get it and see. it''s a little hard to tell from pictures, but I haven''t bought anything from gemrite, so for all we know, the pics could be incredibly accurate to the color in real life, and it''ll just be gorgeous. Or maybe it''ll be a little darker, but not noticeably so. It looks really really beautiful in the pic so I hope it works out!

I love that shade of pink. I think you will need to see it in person to see how dark it is.

Thanks. I am pretty excited about the stone. The vendor has a 7 day return policy so that puts me at ease. I really want a bright and sparkly pink stone so hopefully this will satisfy my colored stone hunger for the moment.

Thanks for the kind words

. It is one of the most brilliant umbalites I have faceted yet, and no worries about it being too dark. Like you mentioned there is a 7 day full money back guarantee and I have never refused anyone that privilege. I want to make sure each piece is perfect for the person purchasing. Customer satisfaction is number one in any trade and a personal belief of mine.


Thanks again everyone,

Thanks for your words of encouragement

I am very excited to receive this stone.

Quick question - What is the difference between an Umbalite and a Tanga? Is it just location?

Yes, Tanga and Umbalite refer to the areas in Tanzania where the rhodolites garnets are found. It is trade name that has been added to distinguish them from other rhodolite garnets.

The stone was sent yesterday so I should receive it Monday! Unless the post office is closed on President''s Day?! I really need to work on my patience.... lol


My baguette band came in last night
And I am loving it! I left my camera at a friend''s house (months ago!) and will take pictures as soon as I pick up the camera.

I''m 100% sure the post office will be closed on Monday because schools and banks are closed.
