It's a very powerful looking stone. The cut of this stone makes it so. I'm a bit intimidated with it. My coworker spent a few years working at a jewlery store in Virginia, and she spent about 10 minutes with the loupe and came back with a thumbs up. It is absolutely all i hoped it would be, and even more.
I'll probably spend an afternoon photographing it with a macro lens before having it set.
Alas, Vickey might not get it too soon. I have a few more planning things to handle before I propose.
