    Default Quiz time

    Who is up for a quiz? Pictured below is a fancy cut stone, maybe not the best in the world, but do you know what it is? No prizes, but have a guess, post your own pics of one of your favourite stones for us to have a guess at.

    I really would like to see some pics of what you all have in your stash :0)

    A trillion in either light blue topaz, or aquamarine.

    I try not to stash stones, so I could only post them already set. Dennis.

    You are just too good Dennis, it is indeed a topaz :0)

    Right well I do not think it is a problem if they are already set so get your *r*e into gear and post a pic :0)


    edited to add: though it is not quite a trillian the top in the pic is concave the sides are convex, not quite sure what you would call the cut except of course fancy :0) Heraldic maybe.

    Pretty stone - I'd have guessed aquamarine too. I don't think I have anything particularly mysterious to photograph though!

    Attachment 3548 you probably know what this is. It has a lot of gold and green mixed together... lovely shine. Too cloudy to get the best pic - it is really tiny, still wondering what to do with it other than keep it in my pot.

    some nice gold will bring this out, but mixing it with other stones doesn't seem to work at the moment.

    one day......

    That is a great cut on a pretty stone. I think I know what it is but will wait to hear what other folks think.

    I was going to post another that I think might be less than obvious but we too have the worst day of weather, so no pic taking to be done.

    Sphene, or perhaps idocrase?
