I ordered a bracelet on eBay because I wanted a sample of B/C jade to have as a sample for my Raman.
It was listed as A jade when I bought it but for $13 I was quite sure that was incorrect.

Well upon arrival i tested it on the Gemmoraman.
Quartz? What? Shoot.

Checked with refractometer and microscope to verify. Quartzite...dyed quartzite.

When I first contacted the seller he offered to refund 50% and I could keep the bracelet.
I refused
Then, the seller said he would refund the money AND issue a paid return receipt.

I've checked quite thoroughly on eBay and can not find anywhere to report this misrepresentation. Has anyone found eBay contact for reporting bad apples?

I think all you can do is raise an "item not as described" case on ebay if you have not been refunded already. (I think it's done via starting a return)

That will automatically give you a prepaid mail label, and also a refund if the seller doesn't comply in the allotted time.

This does give the seller a defect also.

There is a "report this listing" option above a listings description on live listings, but even that has a series of options where I cant find an option to report a false or fake item.

ebay do their best to keep their head in the sand ….
