Wow, I wish I could make my gems multiply. I love the blue color on that stone.

Thanks, I can't wait to see the montana. I asked for a blue green and this one has Dan's RB cut with eight extra pavilion facets. Yum.

ETA: I'm hoping the montana kinda resembles this one than now belongs to Rizajj.

BEG- Thanks, I'll post pics when I get them, I don't even think that they're in the mail quite yet.

TGal- I had a plan, but I can't get the person I was planning with to email me back, to I'll have to get back to you on that one. Also, I blew my setting cash on new stones (again) so it might be a while. They're just so fun nekkid!

Thanks Freke, what did you score from Barry?

Very pretty. I was eyeing the Montana sapphire. I am glad you will give them both a good home.

Marcy- He has more. I don''t know if that''s what you want to hear or not, but I didn''t get the one that was on his website, I requested a more blue-green one. He said he has a small parcel of these though some are already spoken for. I don''t think any are very big, but the color is promising.


Thanks SDL! I wanted an octagon and this fits the bill!

Those are beautiful - the colors look so peaceful and tranquil, I could just stare at them all day...

A little somethin'' somethin''.

BTW, I had the chance to buy that .52 Montana but I decided to pass on it. Is that the one you asked about, but wanted something more blue green? I keep wondering who ended up with it?

Fine. Don't spill. Whatever. I was offered the .52, but it wasn't the color I wanted. I was hoping to do a really cool project in blues and greens, but the person I was hoping to work with won't use my stones
. So there went that. I'm interested to see what color it is in person, Dan's description of the .55 I got was:
It weighs .55 carats, measures 4.65mm and is a modified round brilliant cut with 8 extra facets on the bottom. The color is a little more greenish in person than in the photo, and is kind of paraiba-like or a bit neonish with some flashes of blue. The stone is eye clean and very brilliant, but may show slightly silk or sleepiness in direct sunlight.
Whereas the .52 was blue with a tinge of green. I'm annoyed that I missed that parti sapphire a few weeks ago, I didn't know what it was at first and whomever asked about the rough took it. Why'd you pass on the .52? If I may ask?

I'm also curious if Lori took the tourmaline, but she hasn't been around.

I was first in line for the .52. I thought it was a gorgeous color BUT more than half of my stones are round. I took a whole day to think about it, and just decided that I''d rather have something besides a round, so we talked about maybe an asscher or something else. That is on the backburner for the moment, because I really need to be spending any extra cash on wedding instead of stones. Lol. When do you get them? And what is this blue project you''ve got going on??

I was hoping to have a set of these made with my asscher, the massively windowed tourmaline I got on ebay and hopefully these pretty darlings if they are as nice in person. Now I'm trying to figure something else out.

New pretties are here! I was unsure about the sapph at first, bit in the daylight it''s exactly the color of my favorite shirt. Here''s an updated family montage!

From what I can see in one of those pics, the sapphire looks beautiful. What are these for again?
