Thank you so much, Karee888, Cushioncutnut, Gailey, Bebe, Princessplease, Chrono, Freke, and NeverEndingUpgrade!

Gailey - The new Scapolite is 2.61 ct., 8.26mm x 8.27mm x 6.15mm. I don''t know what I''m going to do with it yet. I can''t mount it in a ring, but I really was hoping to wear it somehow. Maybe a bezel set pendant or something?

Freke - the 21 ct. Blue Topaz was an Ebay buy - radiated with a huge window, but I love the heft of it. It''s one of my play stones.
Lauren,

Here''s a little selection of ideas I''ve saved in my asscher pendant ideas file. I saved the two ring shots because I thought they''d make cool pendant settings.

I''ve been in meetings all day, and the few posts I''ve been able to make have been via iPhone - I''m super bad!

Thanks, Mercoledi! I really like his asscher cut, too. Perhaps when the weather is nice this weekend, I''ll take the Scap outside for a walk.

The lightbox has greatly improved my food pictures, too! I have a cooking blog, and I have been taking decent-to-bad pics of food without it, but the second I got this light box, the pics from my little SD400 really seemed to improve tremendously!

I highly recommend getting one if you like taking pics of things . . . or food!

It''s a personal site, so I can''t post it here, but I just started it up in January. That lightbox has helped my pics so much! It''s like night and day!

And I love that you got a light box! I am obsessed enough with taking photos that I think I would really enjoy one, too. Maybe my birthday.. hmm

It was only $40, and it''s already paid for itself. I only bought an additional lamp from Ikea to light the inside.

Here''s a link if you would like to send it off to DH - http://www.thinkgeek.com/electronics/cameras-photography/a205/
