From Mr. Barry - another Malaya. This was off his last March drop.

Here''s an outdoor sunset shot. It''s more pink than my other Malaya, but it does have a peachy cast in certain lighting.

Oh... such a array of different lavenders/purples and pinks... Love it! So, should I call you Malaya lover instead??

One more in a combo on incandescent and diffused sunlight. I like the orange flashes.

Sorry, I''m not as brave, daring and artistic as Mochi is with her gorgeous photography of gems. I would be too scared!!

Yes, probably, but this is my last one I think unless someone can come up with something close to an 8x8 mm cushion for my empty LOGR! Hint Hint Mr. Flanigan!!

I wanted a Barry round, and this was the last round left in his last drop that interested me. I''m really pleased, and I have a white gold setting for it already. This one is definitely more pink than my oval, but I think it still has a enough orange in there to classify it as a true Malaya. It just isn''t showing up as much in the photos.

Two!????

Either that''s just plain greedy, or are you building a suite?

Very nice

Another one!!! It''s very pretty. Less peach you say? Still, it looks great. These malayas are such a pleasing shade of pink.

Thanks IK. My oval is more of a coral pink and is lighter. This one is more of a truer pink, but it's still an orange pink. It's not like a pure bubble gum pink. It rather looks more like an umbalite in the pictures I took, but it has more orange than an umbalite, and it's lighter.

It''s pretty and you were smart to grab it because I don''t think he has anymore. Right now at least. He might still have some rough he hasn''t cut yet.
What type of setting is this one going into?

Do you have a picture of the setting by any chance?? I''m wondering if I want to go a yellow or white gold with mine. Mine is also more pink than peach...

Ooh I''m so jealous you got another Malaya - and that one to boot! It''s lovely. I''m glad you''re setting it in a solitaire - it''s going to be gorgeous!

Oh I hope he has more - I really think these are gorgeous stones, and I''d like to see more PS''ers grab ''em. Perhaps Gene has some as well.

So in honour of everyone''s Malaya, here''s a little setting I found from Krikawa that I think will set the Malayas off very nicely.

Gorgeous, and that''s more like an 18K rose gold - so a more subdued color.

If that''s rose gold and the colour could be guaranteed, I''d have it for my tourmaline project in a heart beat!

Ooops, I made a boo boo. I picked the wrong vendor photo. It''s this one from the last AC drop. It''s 2 carats on the money and 7.5mm

These stones could be sisters though.

Thanks to everyone for their kind words. Sorry if I didn''t respond to each of you. I''m a bit scatter brained. This was my birthday present to myself since my last bday is in March, and last week stunk. I bought this before I went on my horrid vacation, but Barry held until I got back.
