A neighbor was offering this ring on a neighborhood swap site.
She got it at a gem show in St. Petersburg, Russia. When she got home she had buyer's remorse.

Her pic looked interesting so I bought it.
Wasn't until I got home and looked at it with the scope that I realized it was wormy chlorite in qtz.

Ooh, excellent! It looks to have been cut by someone who knew what they were doing too.
