It is important that you buy gemstones from the source. Thailand supplies approximately 70% of the colored gemstones sold in Western consumer markets. Why is this so important? Value! Because there is such incredible competition here an experienced gemstone dealer can buy quality stones for far less than any other place on the planet. That is precisely what my wife and I do at Tip Top Gem. Please watch this video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rbpnk47t_c
Melanie and I live in Bangkok and visit Chanthaburi on a regular basis in order to find beautiful stones that will please our clients. Because we are not buying them through a wholesaler we can save you money. We run a very lean operation with no employees (except us!) which keeps our overhead very low. When all factors are equal, you will get a better quality gemstone from us at a better price than any other gemstone dealer in the world.
Now on with the auction! This is a very lovely moonstone with superb blue adularescence. This is a ghostly blue "sheen" that floats in the stone, and is caused by light refraction as light passes through alternating layers of the gem. It is a beautiful effect, and it makes moonstone a very attractive and desirable gemstone.
This stone weighs 1.68 carats and the dimensions are 7.96 x 6.01 x 4.37mm deep. The clarity is "I" or included because of the fissure seen in the picture. I don't Photoshop my images, so when you get the stone in the mail you will not be surprised at what you see! Because your satisfaction is so important to us at Tip Top Gem, we try very hard to make decisions that are good for the long-haul. Selling a beautiful, modified picture of an ugly stone does not meet this litmus test.
This stone is starting at 6BTC, and increments are 1BTC. Shipping is FREE. You will get a tracking number so you can track your parcel online. In fact, whenever we ship we use this method- registered air mail with online tracking.
You will be delighted with the adularscence of this stunning moonstone- guaranteed. If not, return it to me and you can have a full refund of the price of the stone and shipping charges. I sound pretty confident, huh?
