the best part is "its an akward shaped and needs to be cut ($5000). I am willing to deduct this cutting amount, if the minimum bid is excelled. "
Hey jleb, sealous, gsellis, and all you other cutters..heck if you guys could get 5 grand to cut a stone you would be set...do maybe 20-30 stones a year and sit back in your nice beach house contemplating life for the rest of the time

"This ruby weighs around 1.5-2.0 lbs." Cutting 20-30 of 1.5-2.0 Lb stones a year. Ghehe…
