I'm not even sure what kind of pictures you are looking for? Rough or cut?

I have so far only ever cut one sapphire, which ended up above 2 cts.

I still have some nice rough, but not the dops to handle it. dunno

Looks kind of aqua .. As could have been cut not on true table( blue ) as opposed to green cross table . Looks nice but you'll have to facet out the chips. Did you dig it yourself ?

It's one of those parti coloured sapphires. Nah, bought it.
There are no chips in it - what you see is the natural crystal face left as a "fake" table. (with all its quirks)
It's a piece of art. yes

Please don't take it personally.  We had  immediately before you joined someone who had just joined and had spammed every introduction thread with the exact same line (some really old introductions, too!) just to get to the 50 post limit.  Talk about annoying!  :D  I believe we were just being a little "proactive" to prevent another one of those escapades.

Hang out, show us pictures, because we really love pics, join in the conversation and then put up your sapphires in Shop and Swap.  I know there are a couple people on the forum who do faceting or would be interested in rough sapphires.
