Costs nothing to be nice!
Jun 24, 2008
I am a masochist! Well I must be because I just sat through an extremely painful experience - Kay Little trying like hell to sell an awful looking Colombian Emerald for what seemed like a lifetime! Hubby had to go and shave twice during the time it took her!

I don't know about anyone else but I thought it looked weird! It was very dull and only what I could describe as a strange colour of green. Obviously filled to the gunnels too. They claim some poor soul paid £1599 for it eventually but I have my doubts.

Also saw another strange one - a "White Cuprian Tourmaline". Did a search on the internet and can't find any mention of "white" Cuprian Tourmaline anywhere. Seems a contradiction in terms - I thought the Cuprian name came from the fact it has a copper content which gives it the blue/green colour? What a window it had too!

Then there was the strange shade of Swiss Blue Topaz. Would you pay £249 for what looks like a Blue Quartz with yet another massive window?

I did get a wee laugh though - a Kunzite ring. They turned the lights down to show the "glow" and guess what? You could still see the flipping great glaring window!

Why or why do I bother?

ps Has anyone seen the attrocious looking Brazilian Emerald pieces they're selling now? Some even say AAA - must stand for Awful, Awful, Awful!!

And what's really glaring from your pictures, Klos, is the huge difference between the real thing on the TV and the photoshopped pictures. Atrocious.
Just realised that I didn't post the pic of the Kunzite in the dark! Here it is now - check out the window you can still see with the lights out!! :giggle:
