Forgot you can't edit in auction threads, anyway. I don't quite understand how that quote is relevant in any way. Dave sells his stones 50% cheaper than you will find anywhere else, he doesn't charge you for shipping, and his highest price (starting price) point is very comparable to any other stone with the same properties you will find, and that is because he knows he will end up dropping the price.
I would say greed isn't in tiptopgemdotcom's vocabulary, but he is an intelligent man, so I guess I can't literally, but what I'm trying to say is, he is never in it for the money, he is in it for the customers. Although he does have bills to pay so of course he isn't going to give away his stones for free. The very implication of the quote is just rediculous
I know he won't tell you off because he is too professional, but I will
