How did you get an R.I. on that stone? I don't see any polished surface....

Also doesn't look like any Emerald rough I have ever seen.

The color isn't even right for emerald, much less everything else.

Here we go again.
Learn how to do a specific gravity test.

Would you take focused pictures in a well lighted area NOT videos.
Also, please take a picture of your refractometer along with the light source you are using for testing.

Thanks

Same question : are emeralds found in Sri Lanka ? I think not.
Do you intend to pick up any stone you find and label it with any name you think pleasant ?
This will not be a funny game for long.
And : the music you put into your videos does nothing to help identification or anything else :?

I had a potential "client" barter with me last week for a full day over a 2+ct Diaspore with a strong colour change. She started at a ridiculously low throwaway price, £10/ct and came up to £12. I rejected her offer, a little annoyed as I felt she was taking the p*ss.

She sent an email to me later explaining that she had just brought an 8ct piece of top quality diaspore for £32. I replied telling her it was probably synthetic or glass, or low grade material to which she responded with an ebay link to a blatant piece of colour change glass. The seller even had tonnes of negative feedback from buyers stating he was selling fakes and glass.

I pointed her to the facts, and she seemed to understand her mistake.

As long as there are buyers who refuse to learn even the most basic things about gems and buying gems, there will always be scoundrels, like the OP, chancing a quick payday from a fool.
