I'm just wondering if anyone has ever dealt with OR has any knowledge of this seller. Seems to have a good Rating etc...
His "Buy Now" Prices seem 'reasonable' but he also has a few pieces up for auction starting @ $0.99!

Their stones, unless otherwise stated are all diffused.

Notice in the sample certificate it says "futher analysis on whether a foreign substance has been introduced is required."

That translates to "we know full well it's diffused but it's up to you, buddy."

Good to know! Thanks for the "heads up." Just had someone else tell me they tested theirs (Stones purchased from this vendor) as Synthetic!

Either way, NOT worth the $$$ IMHO.

prices are tempting enough to trap you,i wonder after paying commissions to ebay and working hard to photograph and list the items,these guys really can afford to even sell diffused at that price?most likely they are selling cheap synthetics.
