Purchased as a gift: No, it is not a gift.
pretty, but dont waste your moneyI bought these nice stones, then brought them to a jeweler to have them set into earrings. When I went to pick them up, the stones had turned to an opaque color, and were no longer in the original shape I brought them in. These stones must not be able to handle much heat that is needed for the setting process.
If you do buy them and have them set using a heat process, be careful how much heat is used. Mine now look like opals. October 25, 2014
