I actually have a couple questions on this section lol. One, does anyone know some good sites to buy from, with cheap prices (cheap, for me, being less than two hundred dollars a stone) (specializing in green stones would be a plus too, but not required, as long as the site has some green stones). I've tried doing google searches for stores and stuff, and so much comes up, it's way too overwhelming for me lol.

My second question, is does anyone know good reliable sites that sell big, synthetic stones? I'm a fan of fantasy stories, and so many fantasy stories have some kind of big stone, that I want something like that, but a big, natural, green stone (like 10mm or preferably bigger) would be way, way too expensive for me, so I'm hoping to find some kind of big synthetic stone. I found some auctions on ebay, but I just wasn't sure if I'd be buying what they said I would be, so I'd like to find something more reliable and trustworthy than ebay.

Thanks.

This is not a consumer's forum and I have NO interest in posting a list of "Places to Buy".
That being said,
many of our forum members are dealers, cutters, importers, etc.
Check out Member's List. Click on their websites. See if any of them have what you are looking for.
We attract a good bunch around here.

Good luck. :D

Oh, I'm sorry. The description of this section made me think it was ok to ask stuff like this.

Now that I think about it, is it ok to ask if any members here sell large synthetic gems?

Thank you.

I don't mean to be a bother, but I can't see any pictures on that Morion site. I disabled the pop-up blocker, and I cilck on the camera icon, and nothing comes up. Has anyoen else had problems with seeing the pictures on their site?

Post what your looking for in the services needed section. I would include specifics and how much your budget is.

Are you using IE or Firefox? Are you sure you don't have Flash or JavaScript disabled somehow?

Morion doesn't work on chrome, I have to use IE6 to see the pictures.

I'm using IE, but I'm not sure which version. I'm pretty sure nothing disabled, but maybe I need to update something.

That's a good point about the Services section, I'll have to try that.
