What do you guys think of this stone? (Garnet)
Here's the listing on eBay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-43ct-BEAUTIFUL...vi-content

I like the color that's in the photo. I wonder if it would go completely black in most lighting though. I do like darkness, but I want a few flashes of light sometimes too. I don't like that the seller only has one photo. He/she does seem to have good feedback though.

Also, the dimensions are listed as approximately 8 x 10 x 5. But it says it's 4+ carats. Does that seem right? Also, is that big enough?

(It would be for the project I posted about in the project thread.)

Yay, fast response, thank you. : )

I think I need to draw a little 8 x 10 rectangle on my finger. Be right back!

Hahaha, you totally do. Then put it on a piece of clay or something to elevate it (5mm or so), because stones look bigger when they're set.

Okay I meticulously cut out 8x10 and 9x11 rectangles of paper. I liked the 9 x 11 better, but once the 8 x 10 is mounted it will look bigger like y'all said. So that's probably the right size. Hmm, what do I have that I can use to elevate this paper square 5 mm?

Rolled up some masking tape. Took a photo of the 8x10 rectangle on my finger and then colored it a garnet-y color in photoshop. I think it's big enough!

I like it a lot. I think the size if perfect. The price is good too!

One day, I'll be a crazy old lady weighed down by all my baubles and it will be glorious.
