Hi, everyone! I don't know much about aquamarines, but I've been wanting one for a RHR. I'm hoping to rely on your knowledge once again! LOL! What do you think of this one? It's about the size I'm looking for, it's listed with a trusted eBay seller, and it was cut by Dan Stair.

I really like this stone! That eBay seller is a good one, and Dan always cuts incredible stones. If you like it I would make sure there's a return policy and then go for it! :)

That stone ticks all the boxes for me, however I am not an expert.

Some may consider the colour to be on the pale side, however I like my Aquas pale.

Thank you, lovedogs and dk168! I'm firmly in the pale aqua camp, as well. Love those light blues!

If paler stones appeal to you, then check out Jeff Davies' eBay shop as he has some nice ones listed.

dk168, thank you! I did find a very nice cushion aqua in his eBay shop that I'm keeping an eye on!

Beau is a great seller and very nice guy. I would ask him if the stone is lighter in hand, as the photos look like they may be on the dark side and darken the stone/make it look a bit more saturated than it might in real life. He will let you know if that is the case, or whether the photos are representative for color. :))

minousbijoux, thank you! He does have a very similar aqua listed and I'm 99% sure that one was also cut by Dan and from the same rough. The pics of that one are somewhat more clear, and it's absolutely gorgeous (although a bit smaller than the one I'm considering).
