Well, I've gone and done it...made my first colored stone purchase! In fact, I had a little frenzy. What can I say, I was overcome! Two came in the mail today, what fun it was to open the package!

Here's a few pictures (I apologize, I do not have mad photo skillz)...some minty goodness and plum prettiness.

That minty beauty is awesome! They're both awesome, but boy that is pretty.

Congrats! Isn't it fun to get the mail these days?

Thanks, athenaworth, yes getting the mail is great fun! I forgot to say that the green one is a merelani mint garnet. He's a little guy at .74 cts. The purple is a 1.34 ct spinel. I'm very happy with both, but the mint is yummy to me.

Athenaworth- my kitty (Amelia, but I call her Stinky Pinkleton) is a ball of sassiness. She does this crazy nose wrinkle thing when I talk to her. She makes me laugh every day, I hope your kitty will bring you as much happiness as Amelia (and her 6 siblings - call me the crazy cat lady!) has brought me.

crasru and bright ice, thanks for the welcome to the dark side! I'm really happy with my first purchase.

Packrat, thanks, these came from ebay, seller by the name of Weblorn. She was very good to deal with, and I think the photos were a good representation of the actual stones. I also have 2 coming from mastercut, and 3 from Dan Stair. :bigsmile:
