Thank you Porridge!
Yes Forte this is the one from Gene last sunday. I did well the previous sunday too :twisted: / :saint: !
Babynurse, given their family, even the ugly sister is an international glamourpuss!
Minous I wish I could get more of these plants too!
Brightice, it is a 1.18 mahenge spinel from Precisiongem. I think it is 5.8mm

Sorry they're not the best pictures of the stone. I got caught up in the styling and composition more. I will get better pictures of the stone's coloring later. Gene's picture was right on.

edit: but loading it to PS lost A LOT of the color and saturation just now. So the following picture is quite washed out .

You're right, VL. I doubt there's an ugly duckling in the lot. I sure was tempted to get another after seeing yours, though!

I really enjoy your photography, especially those flower pics :)) .

Ok these photos show the color more true, except for the dull flatness and brownishness that only got into the photos by the PS compression on upload. oh well.

I agree that whenever I post any pictures on PS, the saturation of the picture takes a huge nosedive. Not sure what is going on there but it's something we all may have to live with for a long time. As for the stone, it looks very at home in the center of the flower. :))
