the price sounds right if you consider it as cutting rough. The color was great (assuming it was an honest pic), but the cutting was pretty bad. I would think a skilled recutter (not me) might still be able to get nearly a carat stone out of that and make a profit.

Price is about right.

Though I never knew spinel has more fluorescence than ruby? I think they got it turned around.
