Super embarassing to admit, but while I can't figure out how to adjust my phonecamera, I just realized that iphoto has an adjustment and I can adjust it to truer colors. So below are the now true color photos. The stone really does have an unusual amount of  contrast with everything from a palish yellowish green, to bright aqua to bright blue to black. Also, I have some other cabs I just completed and will post as soon as I can figure out why my photos have disappeared into the innards of my computer somewhere. I seem to have a slight glitch.

If your camera lacks manual controls, you might try a darker background.

Nice cab! That second photo with the dark background really shows off the colors.
