Yes, I do think it'll be brownish in person

I think it will be dark, and the cut will not lend it to sparkle very much.

It will most likely be a deep dark burgundy in colour rather than a true red, although you might get lucky it will still probably be fairly dark. Ask for more photos on a white background and one taken on the back of the hand in natural lighting not using a penlight or anything else specifically on it.

Looks like it will be a dark stone in person with the propensity for wanting to become muddy indoors.

Thanks, everyone. Dark / earthy red is definitely not what I am going for so I appreciate you all talking me down.
