A pink one, of course!

I had been wondering the same thing.

Sapphire?
Spinel?
Tourmaline?
Garnet?
Whatchamacallitite?

Wow - kind of dead around here!

Before and after on a large (over 1" long) heirloom amethyst a client brought in - part of a larger project in the Jeweler's Bench forum...

One end cut off in the job picture the sales person took.

Another repair - light blue synthetic spinel, belonged to an aunt...

Came out of an old 10K ring, gem is ~16 mm

Had to leave some of the flat and other damage or it wouldn't have fit back in the ring!

My mother got a Nikon Coolpix for christmas, and I got to borrow it to take a couple of photos of gems.

From a picture taken with an old phone camera, with light reflected off a blind to avoid glaring out the camera and even still, speckles from glare-
