You never know. I thought that I wouldn't see a purple beryl until my dad got one on the cheap on eBay. Sometimes sellers have no idea that what they have is unusual or exceptional--if you happen to have your eyes open at the right time in the right place you might just strike paydirt.

If anyone will stumble on this, it will be you and/or your dad. I'll be waiting. :D

Hello all,
Cool thread for a pretty cool stone. You are all right in that the top of the cab was cut perpendicular to the c-axis, so that only one leg of an asterism could be seen. This stone was actually quite interesting in that the top portion of the stone was quite flat, so the other legs were not visible, even from the side.

If our client gives us permission, I'll post the photo.

Cheers and Season's Greetings,
Christopher P. Smith

Well, I do not mind if you post the photo. The problem is, I asked Brad (the vendor) to send the stone to you. Since this is the case, I think Brad is your client instead of me. I will get the stone sometime next week, I can post the photo of the sapphire brief.

Anyway, Thanks for the explaination guys :)

Honestly, I prefer you put star sapphire in the report than cat's eye sapphire. Fortunately, I bought this stone for my client who is looking for cat's eye sapphire. It saves me the hassle in finding another cat's eye sapphire. Btw Cris, do you allow me to use your post above the explain facts of the stone to my client?

No problem. Feel free, there are some very good comments made by others as well, which are more informative...

Personally, I think the stone is much more unique as a cat's-eye. I have seen countless star sapphires, but only a few stones that I would consider classifying as a cat's-eye sapphire.....

And the submitter is our client of record, so they would have to give us the permission.

Best regards,
Christopher P. Smith

Honestly, I surprise that you know that stone I am talking about. I believe you test a lot of stone per day, yet you remember the details of my cat's eye sapphire
