Last one in cool sunlight. Hope you guys enjoyed!

BTW, the ering is a 1.2ct blue spinel cut by Barry, the stone closest is a 1.26ct blue from Dan Stair, the next is a grey 1.6ct from Barry, 1.1ct pink from Dan, 1.07ct cushion purplish-grey (almost black) from Dan, and a .65ct pink from Barry.

Lovely! But Freak- what are all the non spinels? Especially that big blue thingy? And the red ones? Roundy and barion-looking?

IK, the tiny green is a demantoid garnet, the one thats a little bigger is a tsavorite, and then the biggest green is a tourmaline. I think I have a better pic that shows color better...

ETA: Yeah it's an amethyst.

TL I just now saw your post in between my pics! So what do you think of my spinels? I have to be honest, the more I look at my blue from Dan, the less impressed I am with the color. But the deep purple that comes out under fluorescent light is pretty stunning.

iluvcarats Lol. I know. I''m bad. I''m thinking about setting the little and cheap ones (none of the spinels though) in silver bezels from someone on etsy. They''ve been loose for far too long...
