    Oh yes Rhodolite, probably one of my favorite members of the Garnet family tree. The do look really good with black pearls, especially if one is lucky enough to have pinkish/green overtones in their pearls.

    It isn't a perfect pearl, but the colors are amazing. What you see here is really very close to what I see IRL. I really dig the colors! It was a bit hard to capture the 3 colors that I did, but hey it worked out.

    A wonderful pearl. What size is it, and what are you planning to do with it? I always take some time having my pearls drilled...I can spend hours staring at them instead of sorting them and shipping them out for drilling!

    Hi JP-

    I think this just might be a "collection" piece, but I just found a bunch of little nubby 8mm Tahitian pearls with the same overtones, now I am rethinking doing something with them all. I am a "stack" type of guy. I'm replacing Black Onyx and Agates, with Tahitian pearls in my bracelets collection, so this might be the center of a Garnet, Chrome Diopside and (a to be identified blue gem) bracelet for my "stack". Regarding size it is just shy of 12mm

    Well it's good to know that we all have a touch of dragon running through our veins...sitting on our pile of pearls and gems ....murmuring " mine...all mine..." You have no idea what it takes for me to sell something lol. I've got a friend who asked two weeks ago for a quote on 5 blackened bangles with various dangles ( dangle bangle) ...she's still waiting and I'm still looking at them on my desk. Hopeless ( as some of you know all too well ..wink..)

    BPD - nice photo and a lovely pearl..gorgeous colours ..you caught it well I think ! And I love the idea of your bracelet ..I'm sure you'll be kind enough to post a photo ..even one while you are sorting it out...it's fun to see the process. Very interested to see how the colour combo works !

    It is an amazing color. These small pearls are so bright that I am seriously thinking to travel to the area (I heard it is not too touristy) and visit at the farms. Nr 2 on my list after Sea of Cortez farm.
