Well, we never do anything at all that might hurt the little bunnies OMC:)

Another interesting aspect is stones that the cutter thinks they might get faint pink- but they get F

We're cruelty free after all right?

A stone gets F but looks pink?  that's ccrazy!
Right?
Here's another example:


If you think about it, stones like the one below- graded "faint Pink" by GIA, are almost white

Thanks Squig!

I have a few more rabbits up my sleeve ( mixed metaphors)
That must be terribly inconvenient, especially when they all want to get out at the same time.

As promised, here's the next interesting brown.

In this case, GIA didn't identify anything other than J color.
The pink I see is so very faint- sometimes the stone just looks white.
GIA noted internal graining- and you can see that in the pictures.
But based on the way it's cut- just like a Faint Pink, you get a total sparkle sort of light performance.
That means you can't see the graining in person.
Also no bowtie whatsoever.

The stone should be hitting the site tomorrow.

So, what we are looking at here are stones that are accidentally pink, in most cases due to light brown.
Very occasionally, this light brown seems to mimic pink.

Well crap, that stone is stunning!!!!!!

Fantastic deal for the size too.  If only it sticks around long enough for me to get it LOL  I'd seriously just set that in a simple solitaire (all rose gold) and let it shine on its own.
