Please "LIKE" our Master Cut Gems FACEBOOK business page. See the link at the top of the page.
Colored gemstones typically in the last 50 years have been graded EYE CLEAN to INCLUDED. This was done without magnification, above the crown, at 12 inches from your light source above the gem, and some sources say at arms length. We do not use the GIA diamond grading scale for colored stones. It does not transition over because there are too many variables within the mineral families.
If you are in search of a loupe clean gem, please inquire prior to purchase and shipping. We will honestly tell you if it is the gem you are in search of.
All photography is taken outside, with a true MACRO lens under 10x magnification, and in subdued lighting. We feel this may give you a better representation of the color... I am not a photography expert by any means but I do try to make sure you see the cut, the clarity, and the outside color of the gemstone.
NOTE .... We will no longer be selling anything that is Burma named per the rules from PayPal; even though I purchased the gems prior to 2001; it is not worth having the account frozen... If you want one of those gems I bought and re-cut prior to the 2003 embargo; just ask me about one of them.
We have a full refund policy less shipping which to me is the only way to go as beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and a computer monitor can only show so much; so we feel we have to have this policy to be fair as we feel the same way when we get in a parcel of rough; if it is not as described we want to be able to return it...We will always strive to be fair, honest, and kind to everyone; and will always do our very best to keep quality up and the prices as low as the market or our pockets can stand.
