Yessss...your new stone was clearly the best pick of the new parcels. And YES PLEASE to that (white sapphire?) pear above. I really want to see hand shots - I don't think I've ever seen a stone like that on PS. I think the stone on the right is very pretty, and will end up looking similar to the stone I posted about (and therefore, substantially similar to what you just ordered). For variety's sake, I would go for the blueish one, and especially because that white-blue glow seems to be more rare than the pink. Naturally I have also been on the hunt for one in that shade as well, kicking myself for having missed one on insta a few months ago.
Stone arrived today! Man these are sooo hard to get good pics of. I can't capture what I see IRL. it's both saturated and glowy/soft. Tried my best with pics but they just dont quite get it right. I'll try to take more in the next few days
It's such a unique stone! I do love it, but wish I had been fast enough to grab one of the *slightly * more opalescent ones.
This is what ebay had to offer for $32. It has interesting color and inclusions which were fun to look at with my new loupe. It has a rainbow inclusion which is what made it look opalescent in the vendor photos. I can't really decide what it is, but I like it for $32 lol. Any thoughts?
If you want to buy again from the same vendor, my pick is the one below.
You can see in the video it is more saturated and more "opalescent" than the others. I will note that while the two pink stones I've seen in-hand from this vendor are pretty and fun, if you are really after opalescence, I would keep looking.
I recently bought a true opalescent sapphire from this vendor, and would recommend this stone:
Ce saphir translucide est laiteux, nuageux. Ce saphir incolore blanchâtre est également bleu très pâle. Cette pierre mystérieuse convient pour une personnalité spéciale. Ce saphir comme une goutte de gelée bleue pèse plus de 1 carat. Ce long saphir poire mesure environ 8x5 mm. Cette pierre contientwww.etsy.com
I’m sorry it didn’t come as expected. How is it different? Will you show pics?The stone I bought isn't what I hoped for. It's pretty, but I'm not in love. There were too many choices, which I suck at. I didn't know what I was looking for in a stone that's supposed to be imperfect. So, what did I do? I bought another one. It hasn't arrived yet. The first one was held-up at US Customs forever. They even opened it.
This is the first one, his photo:
What stone are they saying this is?
