ametrines are a girl's best friend

Here is a picture from wikipedia that shows the colors better

Take note that it looks kinda weird here because Ben took the photo of the back of the silly thing.

Moments ago we got back from a gem show at our friend Jordan's workplace (he is a watchmaker and works at a jewelry store). There were so many beautiful stones (I of course loved the 70 carat monstrosities best), but the best part... the BEST part... Banks found a stone in his "carat" cake! AHHHHH! I'm so excited. I kept saying, "This is the best day ever!" Anyway it is super pretty and I think I'll have it set into a ring. I never win anything! Good thing I have children to win things for me.

It really is beautiful! I hope I can see it in a ring in person someday.

And I'm glad banks didn't eat it! :)

Oooh! How fun! I'll have to ask for a carat cake on my next birthday. :)
