山口様 エドワード様

本日受け取りました。

象の模様の素敵なケース、ありがとうございます。こういうの、大好きです。包み開けて、きゃあっと叫びましたよ。

今回のサファイア、沢山の画像の中でなぜ惹かれたのか自分でもよく分からなかったのですが、届いてみると、納得です。小さいし、彩度の高い色目ではないのですが、しっかり輝いて主張します。光によって色が変化して、すこし紫がかっているのがなんともsweetです。あ、water-lily見えました。

ありがとうございます。»

wonderful natural aquamarine gemstone

Y.D., Ankara:

"Ed, my aquamarine arrived today - and yes, you can move it from "hold" to "sold". It is beautiful - a special compliment to your photographer - he really caught the bubbles and feathers in his photos - only the colour is even more spectacular than shown on your homepage. Eventhough the gem is heavily included (with beatiful bubbles that look like caught from a spring in the Alps) it 's brilliance is very impressiv. And with the right setting you only see the depths of the huge Aquamarine with the bubbles on the bottom and not the feathers. A truly beautiful gem with a great cut! Thank you for your help (and patience) during my decision process!
Regards from rainy and muggy Ankara"

アフガニスタン・ジェグダレック鉱山産の非加熱ルビーとスリランカ産スピネルが届きました。質問その他の御対応もしっかりとしていて日本人でも安心して買い物ができます。 エドワード・ブリストル様含めて皆様どうもありがとうございました。 

700年以上の歴史を持つといわれるこの産地のルビーは、大理石母岩付きの色・形の良い結晶標本ならば探す努力をすることで入手できました。しかし、GIAのGems & Gemology Summer 2000 に掲載されているような素晴らしいファセットカットされた宝石品質のものは、国内やインターネットで何年探しても見つかりませんでした。 ですから、ワイルドフィッシュさんに初めて希望を叶えて貰う形になりました。
 
しかもおそらくGIA研究サンプル中のファセットカットルビー4つよりも色も透明度も良さそうに見えます。 印刷された宝石写真が濃いめに写ることを差し引かないでそのまま見比べても、届いたルビーの色の方が優って見えます。
その美しさは、Mogok産や見たこともない鳩の血色にこだわる気の毒な姿勢にいっそう免疫を与えてくれると思います。 このようなルビーが出てくる可能性は、アフガンの政情が安定化したとしても極めて稀でしょうが、治安や資金面の問題をクリアすれば今より大きくなると思われます。 もっと難しいかも知れませんが、 パキスタン・フンザ渓谷産のフラクチャーの少ない宝石品質ルビーが登場することにも望みがつながりました。
 
ジェグダレック鉱山産ルビーは、普通は結晶にフラクチャーが多く透明度が下がるため、Mogok産の宝石品質ルビーに匹敵するものが出てくる可能性はかなり稀なはずです。 ほとんどはカボッションカットに適した品質まででしょう。 Wild Fishさんの開拓努力に感謝致します。 かつて、1ct台や2ct台の大粒で透明度の高いファセットカットのJegdalekルビーを3,4ルース見出したことがありました。しかしそれらは白熱灯下でもかなりピンキッシュなルースでしたので、色的にJegdalekルビーとしては抵抗感がありました。 その他にカラット当たり100$未満の品質のフラクチャーの多い亜透明~半透明のルースを多数見かけました。 日本市場では鉛ガラス含浸処理など無しに透明度が高くて色の良い物は本当に見つかりません。処理で高品質のJegdalekルビーは、これまで主に欧米の人々に流れているものと思われました。

...表現の難しいスピネルらしい色合いですね。 顕微鏡でも確認させていただきました。 最も顕著な内包物は、典型的なFinger-printの様な液体インクルージョン(指紋状インクルージョン)を思わせます。 糸筋を引きながらカーブ模様を描いているのを見ると液体だと思われるかも知れませんが、実際は、ドロマイトのような結晶インクルージョンが描き出している模様のようです。
でもこれこそ指紋ぽい感じがします。
 
これは素晴らしい標本になります。

"Oh my!  The beryl is the very best yellow stone I have ever seen, such brilliance.  Why did it take me so long to have you send me a chrysoberyl?  I can't believe they are not much more popular than a mere sapphire.  It is so yellow, through and through.  Please don't put any more Excellent + ratings on your stones or I may not be able to control the urge to have them.  Better yet, let me know in advance before others get a crack at them.
 
The sphenes are also quite nice but we may have a problem.  I acquired them as dangle earrings for my daughter but unfortunately showed them to my wife.  Now I must ask you to search for more of the sphene trillions, the yellow kind."

R.H., AZ:

"I did receive the Demantoids, Peridot and your blue Kyanite. 
I like the Demantoids very much, they are quite the sparklers.  I am having the larger pair set as dangles that will slip on my daughter's pair of white sapphire stud earrings.   The smaller pair will eventually become studs for my granddaughter when she is old enough. Then I took the demantoids to my "former" local jeweler. He said your stones were too low in RI to be Demantoids but they might be Topazolites  (which I had never heard of but since have looked up as also Andradite with likely similar RI as Demantoid).  Then he tried to sell me a "great deal" on an estate piece emerald ring.  When I looked at the stone in my darkfield loupe I said it was seriously cracked and fracture filled which irritated him no end.  
Anyway I retrieved the Demantoids and have since found a new jeweler who agreed they were quite nice (actually asked if I had any more) and very brilliant if a bit unusual in color.  This couple has recently mover to Arizona after having an upscale store in Southern California for many years.  They seem nice and competent without any desire to "wheel and deal" like  my "former" local jeweler.   I am anxious to see them when he is finished. 
I do like the Kyanite, it is a much better crystal than I have read about.  Don't know what I will do with it yet.  I have also come to see more blue in the "iceberg" after comparing it side by side with the Peridot."

J.K.; San Mateo:

"I received the 1.76 star on Monday 1/04. That afternoon my mother wished to see the stone in the car (!) which of course resulted in its popping out and bouncing somewhere unseen. Thankfully less than 24 hours went by before rediscovering the star, which had nestled in part of a seatbelt mechanism, unharmed. 
The stone is gray to the eye under fluorescent lamps but is indeed a very gray blue in more natural lighting. Your grading report and photography accurately present the star's properties in detail by my examination(s). The asterism is indeed super and surprisingly defined for so small a sapphire. I can appreciate that the cut is pretty evenly proportioned having cut my first cabochon of softer jasper last year, without worrying about bringing out any asterism. The polish / finish is even as well.
Apart from the 1.76 I am intimately familiar with 5 other star sapphires - my 13.5 carat stone in an art deco ring and the Ceylon stones my great-grandfather brought back from his travels (12 carat pendant, 2 approximately 5 carat stones set in earrings and a 1.5 carat star still loose since the 1930s or 1940s). Sadly the sixth and finest stone, set in a ring, was stolen. 
It's interesting to note that the rutile silk appears to be slightly finer in the sapphires from Sri Lanka but I understand that could well just be the composition of this particular Burmese star sapphire. In fact, I somehow exhibit a personal preference for stones with the more opaque and even "silky sheen" such as this one rather than those with very apparent hexagonal crystalline structures visibly zoning between the darker color of the corundum and the lighter color of the silk (again, my layman hobbyist analysis may be off). There is an occasional spider's web effect as light hits the surface at certain angles on this one.

At any rate, your report comment was spot-on as the dainty will be enjoyed by me, a collector of gemstone phenomena whose budget accommodated the purchase. I felt and still feel the oval shape and lack of excess depth will lend the 1.76 quite nicely to a slender tie bar taking advantage of the more neutral gray tone as opposed to a saturated blue hue, but my father (the Jeffrey M. on the shipping address) considers the 1.76 too nice to go unnoticed on a tie bar. I'll figure something out - either an inventive and handsome tie bar or something like a pinky ring where the star shall be face up in the sunlight. 
 
Thank you for honestly presenting the 1.76. Star sapphires are quite uncommon in my corner of the United States despite my ring and the heirloom pieces in my family.
 
Your writings on gems, in particular the criteria for judging stars, has been consistently enlightening and the blog posts on factors surrounding the stones, thought-provoking. Keep up the good work."

P.B., Lausanne:

"The Titanite is a true fireworks ! As you said you have to see it in order to believe it. The "Deep Purple" is wonderful ! Even more than what the pictures showed. You spoke about a "fruity" colour, and I must say that's really right ! Furthermore its clarity grading rightly conforms to what I see, and when looked at through the lens, the inclusions are beautiful ! Being of the same colour of the stone and placed on the side, they don't disturb at all; in fact they even add to the stone's beauty, as if its core was "boiling" ! As you may guess, I definitely keep this purple wonder."

"The ring arrived safely. Your goldsmith did a good job trying to approximate the pictures. It has a very hand-made quality to it which is exactly what I wanted. The center stone looks great and the diamonds are a perfect size. I can't wait to  go outside in a couple of hours to see the sapphire in the sun as the poor fluorescent lighting and tinted windows of my office are not doing it justice. I update you in a couple of days:

I just took the ring for an insurance appraisal. My gemologist was very impressed with the stone and said that you did a great job on the setting and in choosing the diamonds as well. She was particularly impressed by the clarity of the stone and it took her so long to find anything under the microscope that she was getting worried. After completing her examination and test, she agreed completely with everything on your in-house grading report. We also noticed a slight purplish tint to the stone, which, in her opinion, was a very nice addition to its already very impressive blue color. Without knowing how much I actually paid, her appraisal came out at $X. In sum, she was so impressed with the sapphire that she asked me to send her a link to your website. It has been a pleasure doing business with you and, depending on my choice for the wedding bands,  I will likely contact you again when the wedding draws nearer."

"Two thumbs up for the artist to be able to do this in platinum, and excellent craftmenship. One of a kind indeed. Very special. Something I'll enjoy for a long time. Although, it wasn't love at first sight, this ring already starting to grow on me. As for the Alex, the crystal is crisp and brilliant. This stone is also something that takes time to appreciate the true beauty. At first, the color change is not as i expected, the red color is like a reddish dark shadow masking the green, not red as in ruby or spinel. The true beauty however is under the sun light and mixed lights, where the color play is dynamic from green, bluish green, yellowish green and flashes of red. I'm still studying this gem, very interesting and has start to grow on me, just like the ring. Many thanks to you for making it happen. Thanks again."

I just picked up the ring from being set and appraised. The ring came out to be appraised for quite a bit higher than we paid which was nice and the stone looks even better when set. Ed, you have been both kind and helpful and for that I am eternally grateful. I will make it a point to recommend you to anyone who mentions purchasing a gemstone that I ever come across."

"I really like the teal tourmaline.  It is quite brilliant.  I will probably have it set as a pendant but first need to see what setting will accommodate the stone depth. The sapphire pair is lovely, not nearly as large as the green Tourmalines so I have to think about how to put them in earrings to best show them.  Perhaps at the base of small half hoops so they are below the ear. The heart tourmaline is a bit more brown than I expected from the photos.  It does indeed sparkle orange when there is enough light but is quite subdued without direct light.  I am still thinking about what to do with this stone."

(tourmaline and sapphire)

... and ...

"Yes, J. absolutely loved the green studs.  They are just the right size to be really eye catching.  I don't think she really knew how dazzling they were until several people commented on them at a party she helped her employers (corporate law firm) host.  I guess a couple actually asked if they were real."

"Several weeks ago I received a 4.78ct. ceylon almadine garnet. Ten years ago the magnificent (now) semi-mount held a 4.77 muzo Emerald with a beautiful garden as a gift. The 18ct. (28 0z.) gold ring was surrounded with bezel set celon sapphires & D-F diamond bagettes. The hardness scale on the emerald is very low & I placed a very noticable crack through the stone. It's been 10 yrs. & it was time to find a stone within my buget. I would have liked a square blue-green indicolite. I found a 1.70 ct. to die for. It was $200, and was too small. Then I found your site. This garnet is awesome! It fits perfectly and rivals some of the Burmese rubies I've seen. I didn't break my bank account, & its a pleasure to just look at it. Thank you so much."

We plan to have the stone set in a ring that happens to have a very similar setting to one I saw on your site (I've attached the photo), but was purchased before we found this gemstone.  We will be taking it to the jeweler this week to discuss having it set in the ring.

Als mein Partner und ich uns am 22.7. mit dem Auto auf den Weg zur See machten, kam er auf die Idee, vorher noch zum Postfach zu fahren. Und da wartete das Cat's Eye auf mich!!!  Da ich fest davon überzeugt gewesen war, dass es mit DHL kommen würde, war ich völlig außer Fassung und überglücklich, es doch in den Urlaub mitnehmen zu können. Das hatte ich mir so sehr gewünscht, und da es bis zum 21.7. nicht eingetroffen war, hatte ich natB Crlich nicht mehr damit gerechnet und war schon sehr traurig.Aber die Überraschung am 22.7. war um so schöner, als wir feststellten, dass das Katzenauge per Post und per Einschreiben geschickt worden war und das ich es doch mitnehmen konnte!!!! Ich hätte schon viel früher geschrieben, um mich zu bedanken, doch leider war es mir von unserem Urlaubsort aus nicht möglich. Bitte übermitteln Sie auch E. Bristol meinen herzlichen Dank für dieses wunderschöne Katzenauge, aus dem ich einen Ring fertigen lassen werde. Ich bin einfach begeistert und freue mich schon auf den Ring, d enn so kann ich das Katzenauge immer bei mir tragen. Ich werde es schön hüten und Ihre Organisation auf jeden Fall an Interessierte weiterempfehlen. Alles Liebe und Gute für Sie und allen Mitwirkenden Ihres Unternehmens!"

B.P, UK:

"The workmanship is superb, the ring is perfect in every way.  I have recently visited  Tiffanys, the Wonder Room at Selfridges and the Fine Jewellery Rooms in Harrods and this ring equals the quality and workmanship of any ring in those places.  This is my dream ring come true.  The service was excellent and I am an extremely happy customer.  I will be coming back for more. Thank you so much."

J.B, Canada:

"The stones that I got recently have now made the rounds of the jewellers that I usually deal with so now I can pass along high praises and compliments.  Everyone I have talked to is amazed by the cut and quality of all three stones.  The topaz was the obvious favorite but they were also amazed at how clean and clear the aquamarine was.  So now you have a few more fans.  Most of them have never seen untreated stone of that (or any) size.  Everyone was just thrilled to look at them (with and without the loupe).  So there is your pat on the back for the day.  Talk again soon."

F.M., Sprirt Lake:

"My stones arrived this morning...I am amazed at the speed something can travel around the world.  They are beautiful and do not disappoint.... I love the color of the aquamarine...exactly what I hoped for.  The little yellow sapphires are charming.  Not sure what I will do with the orthoclase but it is very appealing."

A.G., Germany:
 
"die Steine sind heute angekommen. Sie sind wunderschön und ich denke auch, dass man sie zusammen tragen kann. Wenn ich vorher gewußt hätte wie schön das Kaschmirblau ist, hätte ich den größeren Stein wohl auch in der Farbe ausgesucht. Vielleicht komme ich in späterer Zeit auf das Angebot zurück die Schmuckstücke über Sie anfertigen zu lassen. Auf jeden Fall recht herzlichen Dank für Ihre tolle Hilfe."

J.R., Canada:

They are beautiful.  The amethyst is so fun and bright.  The aquamarine is so clear; the picture did not do it justice.  The topaz is fabulous.  I am so happy with it.  The rutilations make it so unique.  It is just so amazing.  Iam looking forward to seeing the peridot.  Talk to you soon

"The ring arrived. It's great. Really great. She'll love it. I really appreciate it. We don't always get rewarded in life for doing the right thing.

"The stones arrived on Saturday.  They are absolutely spectacular!  The dravite is an amazing color and I think it is going to end up as a slide.  
 
I was totally unprepared for the demantoids.  Small but absolutely dynamite brilliance!  I dont't need it in any way but will probably start looking for a larger one this fall.  Russian, perhaps?
 
In the meantime,  I'll continue to be a frequent visitor to your website. Thank you so much!"

V.N., Beijing:

"The drop looks awesome under the magnifying lens.The mint tourmaline is quite something. The pink pair are sweet and will work well for studs. The blue square pair are a sparky surprise and work perfectly with the stone I have. The apatite is definitely not subtle, is it?!  I'll hang on to it too. And the Namya spinel is an amazing color.  I didn't even need to wait for daylight for it to shine. The star- as you said, the star is impressive.s."

D.J., Germany:

"Liebe Frau Nielson, Nachdem ich nun von meiner Reise zurück bin, möchte ich Ihnen mitteilen, dass die beiden gelieferten Steine gut und schnell bei mir angekommen sind und ich sehr zufrieden mit der Lieferung bin. Die Beschreibung der Steine war überaus zutreffend. Das unregelmäßige, grün-blaue Farbspiel des Saphirs ist meiner Meinung nach viel interessanter als die kornblumenblaue Farbe eines ideal durchgefärbten Saphirs. Fast scheint mit dieser Stein nun zu schade zum Fassen....Auch der  Badakhshan-Turmalin sieht großartig aus. Was die Natur für herrliche Farben hervorbringen kann! Vielen Dank auch für den Edelsteingreifer, die Lupe und die nostalgischen Kästchen für die Steine! Gerne werde ich nach Möglichkeit den einen oder anderen Stein wieder bei Ihnen kaufen. Bis dahin viele Grüße"

"Ed - Just to let you know that the aqua arrived safely a few days ago.  It is a very beautiful gemstone.  I just dropped it off at the jeweler's to be set and her estimate of value was quite a bit more than what I paid (with you). I guess it helps to like unpopular colors, or something! Thank you, and it was great doing business with Wild Gems."

M.S., Millersville:

"I received my ring this morning! What a beautiful job. It is definitely "queenly" in appearance! A huge thank you to all you at Wild Fish Gems for your artistic talent and excellent craftmanship.

G.O., Austin:

"They are truly lovely stones, and my jeweler here was excited when I showed him your website.  I can imagine you may get some business from him! I am not even going to bother with getting an appraisal/certification from the gemologist here, although I was gratified to hear he was impressed by the quality of the stones when he looked them over. Thank you-- this truly makes the unique engagement ring of my dreams.  I didn't even know this was what I was dreaming of until I saw it.  I was so tired of everyone having the same ring-- always a round brilliant or a princess cut diamond, and always in a pave halo setting-- boring!  I could never pick a diamond, took me months to realize they were blurring together in my mind.  None stood out to me.  But this sapphire-- it's the color of a fine glass of sherry.. like a drop of Coca-Cola on a white plate... like molasses on a piece of cornbread... honey with cinnamon stirred in... all the analogies I can think of are food related!  This stone is delicious I guess. Thank you for bringing it to me.  If, by strange chance, you know which family or group of miners found this rough, I'd love to tell them how happy they made me." 

(sapphire, dravite, garnet)

Title 
 
D.H. Ontario:
 
"The sapphire is exquisite. I waited 'til this morning, before writing you so I could see the gem under all lighting conditions. It refracts the light with so much brilliance that the stone appears to be sprinkled with gold dust and this is under incadescent, fluorescent and daylight and the sun isn't even out to-day. What a dazzling sparkler this rare sapp is. I have never seen anything like it. It would be difficult for Mother Earth to produce a more dazzling gemstone. It has been a pleasure doing business with you."

A&G., Philadelphia:

"Ed,... our appraisal came back 100% unheated, untreated, VVS2 clarity, excellent symmetry and cut...  I know this isn't news to you, but as total newbies to the gem world, we were anxious to see how things turned out.  If you want to post the following on the website, feel free.  We are so incredibly pleased. To be honest, we fell in love with the stone at first sight.  It is so clear and shiny and the color change is so pronounced.  It's like a gorgeous little drop of magically color-changing brilliance.  We are absolutely ecstatic. When our appraiser took a look at it, his first words (after seeing the color change) were, "Well, you certainly don't see this very often..."  This is exactly how we feel about our relationship.  We can't imagine a better engagement stone.  A million thanks."

R.N., Colorado:

"RECEIVED THE RING TODAY. REALLY REALLY NICE. HOPE YOU TOOK A PICTURE OF IT SO YOU CAN DISPLAY IT.  ALSO THE ZIRCON LOOKS EVEN BETTER THEN YOUR PICTURE. IN MY OPINION  IT  HAS  AN  ORANGE  BROWN  COLOR-VERY  PLEASING  INDEED.  THANKS  FOR  YOUR  GOOD  EFFORTS."

S&L, Virginia:

"L. and I absolutely love the stone!! I now understand the term "nearly electric character under a light beam."  I received it this morning here, 9 PM your time on Mon. the 21st.  My only regret is not being wealthy enough to afford a stone of that quality in a 3 or 4 carat size.  Thanks so much, I'll continue to monitor your web site from time to time. Best wishes to you,"

L.G., Colorado:
 
"My gems just arrived, and they are beautiful!!!  The Mali garnet is so brilliant and full of fire ... just as advertised.  The color shift sapphire is truly wonderful with more color shift than I had expected.  I have ordered other color shift gems from other sources and none of them are this nice.  Finally, the purple/pink sapphire is simply charming.  For an untreated sapphire, I think it was a steal.  In addition, I love the way you package your gems and the nice little gift is certainly a surprise.  It is a thoughtful and a much appreciated gesture.  I can say with confidence that I will be ordering from Wild Fish Gems many, many times in the future.  You have superior gems, superior service, and superior delivery time.  You are now at the top of my vendors list!!!"

Shallow, as you said, but nevertheless a fully saturated ruby colour, and it does look rather large face up."
