Dear guru, please
Why so cheap, he sold the sapphire for $128?
What's the intrigue?
Thanks in advance.

Not just a possibility but a near-certainty at that price.

This is getting very tiring for me.
Size your images to 600px to upload to this site.
I have resized your photos Freya for the last time. I won't do it again, I'll just delete them.

Yes, they did, but when someone adds a post, the full size appears, making it very difficult to add a post.
Thanks for understanding.

Maybe it is cheap because it is small, not so good looking colorwise, poorly cut, and included (so says the cert).
