''2.26 ct. This stone is a copper bearing Paraiba type tourmaline.''

Lori

Gene corrected the description.....she truly IS a yellow zircon: 3.69 ct. This zircon is cut in a 7 sided step cut, similar to an Asscher style but with one less side.

Thank you everyone! I just started chemo infusions and have been pretty wiped out lately....between that and my SLE lupus flaring like mad.


Anyway, I can''t wait to see this stone....she is very unusual and I will probably set her in a ring.....bezel....plain white gold? I would LOVE to have something set in green gold, but I don''t know if this one would work.

The package hasn''t arrived yet.

I owe y''all a bunch of photos and will get to it as soon as I can.....finally have my new camera...YAY!

Hope your treatments are going well and you don''t have yucky side effects. My mother is going through similar.

She came today and WOW does she sparkle.....I''ll figure out a way to take a photo ASAP!

I''m super tired and get nauseated after I eat, but am hanging in there. They say I''ll lose my hair at some point, but friends/family have lots of hats lined up for me.

Awwwww Lori, fantastic news that your new beauty has the WOW factor! I can''t wait to see photos.

However, it''s more important that your rest up and concentrate on getting yourself well. I hope the side effects wear off soon hun and you''re feeling more back to normal quickly.

I just realized that you replied to what I posted! Don''t feel bad AT ALL!!! I''m excited that someone from PS got it so I can see pictures! Have you taken any because if you did I completely missed it!

I hope that you feel better soon!

Beautiful stone, can''t wait to see pics, but wait until you have the energy.

I had no idea you are on chemo. I hope it goes well for you. I am glad to hear you have a good support system.

Hi Lori, I know you aren''t really able to take photos - but I would love to hear your thoughts/feelings on your zircon?
I am currently looking for a golden/yellow gem and this is one of the types that Gene offered me - do you like yours? Is it more yellow or green?
And do you have any ideas on setting it?

Thanks I look forward to your response
