      I will come back on this in 48h ;-)
    2. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      48h of reflexion, lol!
      I said "described as".... ;-D
      Examine carefully the pics, what possibilities are there....
    3. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      The play is mostly what identifications can you make from a pic only!
      So, OAS, what is this for you?
    4. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Yeah! You play with me! Of course, I bought it!

      I show only the "part" to identify, the whole thing is a stick pin :-)

      So, to be clear, question is stone? Amber? Or ???
    5. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 6 years ago
      Ha ha, I know better than to play this game, I leave that for the experts! :)

      OAS, good to see you back, I wondered where you'd got to! :)
    6. racer4four racer4four, 6 years ago
      Kyra this is too hard! For $8 I would buy it just because it might be a good thing.
      I don't know jewellery but I like the old looking setting although the stone looks glass to this novice.
    7. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 6 years ago
      Of course I noticed, OAS, missed your comments on the threads, not only for your knowledge but for your way with people. Some folk just have the right touch. :)
    8. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Racer, thanks for playing!
      It is not glass... the mount is very damaged and seems done by a blacksmith, the "thing" falled apart.

      Lol OAS!!! Resin blob, love the term!
      You will have to wait till this evening to know!
      Here it is 8 am now :-)
    9. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      A new pic for clue...
    10. inky inky, 6 years ago
      I would take the punt and grab it...I think!!.. putting my head on the block....definitely amber...gwd!! I said it...:-/
    11. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Inky, thanks for playing :-)
      Hoping you have a second head... ;-)
    12. kiwipaul kiwipaul, 6 years ago
      So I would check out what else does the seller have? What items have they sold recently in their feedback? Are they naive or cunning? Maybe they are naive Grandma selling things they have no idea about? Or maybe they are cunning seller trying to suck in a Kyra to take her hard earned $7.56?

      If I felt good about it, what is there to lose in buying a 3ct Mexican Fire Opal. Does the stick pin come with it? Maybe it is platinum? With Kyra's luck it probably is!
    13. toracat toracat, 6 years ago
      That is, I think a Mexican opal from Magdalena!

    15. toracat toracat, 6 years ago
      scroll all the way down and click on the one on right!
    16. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Paul, you're the king! Great id :-)
      The mount is very low silver, ugly made and ruined... But I knew what the 12mm stone was!
      A big clue for difference with old dragon's breath art glass is the double domed cabochon cut.
      I bought the Mississippi pearl stick pin for $17.25 from same seller, and a ravishing 14K griffin holding a freshwater pearl in art nouveau design for $34. (I'll post it too!)
      Seller has 39970 feed backs!!! And sell all kind of collectibles...
      Always stunning that a lot of sellers even don't feel their stuff!
    17. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Paul, the mississippi pearl stick pin is there ;-) (nice mother of pearl and gold tone pin uh?)

    18. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Don, you won the coconut tree too! (French saying!)
      Mexican fire opal, I didn't knew for Magdalena, thank you!!!
      XOXO
    19. kiwipaul kiwipaul, 6 years ago
      Ah, that Mississippi dog tooth pearl stick pin was cool. Toracat was second!

      Look forward to seeing your 14K griffin holding a freshwater pearl!
    20. toracat toracat, 6 years ago
      Thank you! Let us celebrate! And go to Vietnam!! XXOOXX

      Many thanks to the 9 mystery stone lovers ;-)
    23. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Lol, OLD persons love naps, and some SILLY are not fairplay! Don't be upset uh, OAS, JUST KIDDING (I scream because maybe you're deaf too...) ;-P

      The glow and double cab cut made me risk the $$$$!
    24. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Your new name will be Oldandsleepy from now, Madam ;-)
    25. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Everything but blind... And mute! (-_-)
    26. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 6 years ago
      What a beautiful stone, kyratango, nice buy. :)
    27. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Thank you Katherine! I never had one in hand, but saw so many opal pics I could identify the hue :-)
      Observe is learning too!
    28. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 6 years ago
      Amazing eye, kyratango. :)
    29. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      I would grab it :-)
    30. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Thanks Katherine and Manikin :-)
      It is now in my "in case of" spare stone box ;-)
    31. trunkman trunkman, 6 years ago
      A couple of times I have had to go on a poor picture for what I thought could be a great trunk -- the first time was a strike out and I was so angry with myself I could have thrown it out the window on the way home -- but the next three were home runs... an educated guess is a good bet!!!
    32. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Oh la la, Trunkman, it's dangerous to throw trunks out the window while driving, LOL!
      Lot of bidders are afraid to buy from poor blurry pics, so if clues are good, a bargain is possible...
      Thank you for telling us your first time ;-))
    33. wpj wpj, 5 years ago
      Beautiful Mexican Opal. I love the green fire.
    34. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago

      Thank you Aura for the love :-)
