I can't believe what the IGS did

I have tried a couple of eBay dealers off eBay they have all sent simulants but the stones were certified and came with a certificate but the were zandrite a man made simulant if you have a cert that is not from the gia it’s most likely worthless I don’t except them as id neither does any dealer I associate with but we have the capability to id stones as certified gemologist but to sell 10,000$+ gems we send them to gia only please use cation selling stones off eBay with there credentials

That’s a beautiful Alex looks like old Russian stock it doesn’t get better than that green to red

Never ever buy anything from India, no disrespect to anyone from India on here but 99.9% of the Indian sellers on eBay sell simulants, I keep reporting them to eBay as it gives the genuine sellers a bad name. I have the option of GIA certs from this seller and I have done with some of my Rubies, ALL of them have come back exactly as the Seller has described. As always it’s buyer beware :slight_smile:
