Was this a good purchase?

20$ aquamarine

Was this a good deal?

Still cleaning it up …

It will make for a very nice set of cabs or maybe even a small carving. So from that perspective I say it was a good deal.

Hard to tell from a pic and how it could be cut.

I will take better photos now that i have cleaned it more i bought a number of samples i think could be amazing for the small price tag

Oh and these for me



I disagree with Mike and as Robert stated earlier:

That aquamarine would make a fantastic intaglios! Just as the ancient Greek sailors did over 2000 years ago. There are more sides to a stone than just the mossy one… :grin:


Yeah i already found a beautiful use for he cloudy end … teasting my stones and finding sapphire fossils…

And it would maks a couple of beautiful things the phone wasn’t doing the color justice
