After all that work with the emerald and the microscope, I decided to play around with my gems. Here are a couple of pictures I took messing around.

1st picture: L to R: unheated green sapphire (2.5 carat or so), spessartite (1 carat? not sure), unheated padparadscha sapphire (2.5+ have to check the cert), unheated ruby (2 carats), emerald cut sapphire (1.10 carats), zambian emerald (1.5 carats or so, notice the chip I put in it :(( ), unheated blue sapphire (2.07 carats, this is an awesome stone for seeing untouched rutile silk), tsavorite (1 carat or so), blue spinel (2.5 + carat round), alexandrite (1.2? carat have to check cert), tiny paraiba tourmaline, unheated sapphire (2.5 or so pear shape), golden beryl (2.5 carat), unheated pink sapphire (2.5 + -), small blue oval sapphire (1.25 carat), larger oval blue sapphire (2 carat + -).

Some opals of various kinds, all solid, all from Australia. Largest is 18 x 11'sh.

They are beautiful... pretties but definitely not cheapos. (Even a tiny Paraiba is a Paraiba... and an alex).

It's probably too late to make any edits but if you could somehow tell us which pic is which stone? The older folks around here can make an accurate guess but lurkers probably don't know which is what.
