I thought this was funny. This is Dan''s latest stone. He needs to advertise better.

Well geez...might as well really ramp it up and call it "fugly tourmaline"...

I don''t know anything about tourmalines...is it really that ugly?

Well, if his pictures are much lighter than the stone, as everyone attests to, then it''s probably a brown color.

The rough looks more brown.

I saw that too, I should have known it would already be posted. I asked, I had to email him anyway.We''ll see if he answers... Maybe it was supposed to be more pinky? I don''t know, it''s really brown.

Thats pretty funny!

Hmm... what color of metal for a setting would make the stone less ugly?

Too funny!

Though the color is a bit of a mystery, it is clear that the tourmaline is cut well, so how ugly can it really be?

LOL! Maybe he should try heating it to see if it becomes less ugly!

I got a response:

"The color is a sick slightly pinkish (maybe) brown-gray. It is the most repulsive color I''ve ever seen in a tourmaline. I was hoping for a stone that was just "silver", as that is very rare and oddly attractive. But noooo.....it came out to be "corpse" colored. The stone is clean, brilliant, etc., but that color is just horrid. :)"

I''m ROLFMAO!!!!!!

MonkeyPie: it is going for $45.00.

When I asked about the stone, I didn''t get nearly as much information as Frekechild did when she inquired about it. There are a couple people in line to get the stone.
