I am a custom gem cutter on the side (I do software for the day job) and thought someone might want a real commodity for Bitcoins and i get some to work with.  Up for sale is a custom cut 1.2 carat montana sapphire in an Asscher cut (max sparkle!) .  Rather than those dark black excuses Macys sells, you get something of real tangible value.

You can see the stone and my other work here: http://s562.photobucket.com/albums/ss69/johnleb/

Here's a picture of what you get for 30 bitcoins  (sorry about the dust and gnarly tweezers, the finish is perfect)


Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

Price lowered to 25 bitcoins.. I can also do other custom cut gemstones..  

Edit: I'm going to put this on hold till the mtGox situation straightens out and we have some stability in the market..  i'll update when I feel that's happening.. pm l me if you have any questions/thoughts.

I realized that people didn't understand what i deal I had up here.. here's where you can see what these retail for: http://big-sky-gems.com/facetedstones.aspx

Now that the market is stabilized around $15/Btc  I'll reprice this @ 35 bitcoins.   I'm also putting it on the block elsewhere so if you wanted something tangible at wholesale prices you should buy it now.. in about 3 days (next tuesday the 28th) I'll have it sold, one way or the other..
