Thanks Amir, great example photos. I have the Champagne color smoky quartz, I guess they call it. I see lots of yellow hues, and just now noticed red specks in areas after looking again.

I guess we can end the discussion on this piece above anyway. May have more gems to show down the road. I'm just glad it passed the test as real, or I would be contacting the seller, to get my $20 back! Which by the way I hope was a fair price for the piece above.
