@mintbark There was some discussion on a FB page about some of this vendor's stones, such as a questionable red beryl and Sweet Home rhodochrosite. I happened upon it after the posts about FB gem groups.

What do they say about him? I couldn't find the posts in question.

I'll post the beginning. Please note: I do not know this vendor, nor am I claiming they are dishonest or sell questionable stones. This is just an fyi.

Oh, I see, you're not talking about the seller mintbark asked about, the one I bought my sapphire from. You're talking about a different seller.

That's such a pretty one. I'm not normally tempted by precision cut colored stones, but that one did make me stop and look!

If I wasn’t after something very specific right now, I’d be after this! It reminds me of one that was very similar about 10 years ago, for a significantly higher price!

Not sure if posted already, but this is a gorgeous Mahenge spinel from Litnon. I prefer these pinkish red spinels over redder ones.

2.53ct
2277USD
I would ask what is the best price they can do before buying.

I've tried to negotiate pricing with Lotion before, and never have they deigned to reply with a response. At least other places have said no. I took that to mean that Litnon is very inflexible on price and would be so offended they don't feel obligated to reply if you try to get them to come down on price.

Oh, good info, thanks

Regarding ”gemoceanltd” on Instagram, how does one ask for a price and get it? I’m not on Instagram but have an account and have no idea how they can contact me, if I ask for a price in the comments. Can someone please explain how they know how to contact you and where one would see their reply? TIA.

To request a price on Instagram you can ask in the comments or you can directly message the vendor. The vendor will typically respond via message.

I’ve been staring at that mahenge for weeks and weeks… so gorgeous!

Maybe I will buy it later in the month if the spinel is still up. Like how I justified buying my favorite paraiba gem... If it's still for sale by the time my birthday around, it's destined to be mine!

Then again, if I end up buying a hot pink gem from Precision Gem, I will probably not be able to justify getting the Mahenge spinel :p

I saw this too and think I voided the AppleCare on my phone because of water damage from my drooling all over it!!!!!

That’s funny :appl::appl:
