I am on the hunt for a 8 mm cushion cut Spessartite- if possible, with the lovely "fanta" orange color. This board has been a great resource and I've been checking the websites of many of the vendors mentioned (Precision Gems, Gemfix, etc.). It's been several weeks, and I've yet to see anything at all meeting these rough specifications (not to mention even taking quality of the stone into account). I've seen vendors with a lovely collection of Spessartite- just not in the cut or size I would need. Maybe I am not looking in the right places or going about my search in the right way?

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to specific vendors I should keep checking back with? Some people have mentioned gem shows- is this a good resource and how would I find one near me?

Thanks again for your help!
