I would like to find the manual that went with the GIA Gemset. I have the predecessor Gemset, before GIA bought the rights (has some 324 color paddles) but no manual. If any one has one they would like to sell, I am open to buy...otherwise, I would sell the gemset to someone who wants it.

If this post is in the wrong place, I apologize. I am not usually a user of this forum.

That would be excellent if you could. You can email it to me at bob@rwgems.com. I really appreciate it.

Thanks, Roshanravan :) . As you noted, not much of a manual, but still good to have.

Here's something I've wondered about: On each of the hue paddles is the abbreviation for the hue, i.e., styG; following that are two numbers, i.e., 4/5. I'm going to assume (yes, I know :roll: ) these represent the tone (4) and saturation (5). Are these, then, considered the "most preferred" tone and saturation for the hue?

sorry for late reply, i was busy because my son had fever and ....
the problem with paddles is their numbers,

All Tone Paddles have same Saturation and all Saturation have same tone, but it should have all tones for saturation paddles and all saturation for Tone Paddles, which is total of 120000 Paddles. thats why i use GemeWizard

Actually, I don't use the GemSet, either :| . It is pretty to look at, though 8) . Of course, so are my sewing threads and embroidery floss, which are stored by hue, tone, and saturation, as well -- and are used much more often :P .
