So I loooooved the mint colored moissanite from this thread


http://betterthandiamond.com/discussion/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=482609

and I ordered 2 fromjtv.com...but they came in 2 completely different colors (and slightly different sizes). I'm wondering if anyone knows which one is the actual "mint" color? Does moissanite co sell green moissanite that is similar? The one on the left is darker, cut amazingly, sparkles like a diamond..I LOVE it. The one on the right is lighter, a pretty color, but not cut nearly as well. I'd love it equally if it were cut well.
Here is hte youtube video link along with the earrings that I plan to set the moissanite stones in (once I get a match lol)

There is a pretty wide range of green Moissanites available, especially since C&C is getting down to the last of their inventory. The pics we posted before of the "minty" green Moissanite is between the light and the medium green.

The two pics at the link you posted are actually of the same stone, just turned slightly so the light is catching it.

Mike do you have any more 5mm mint green moissanite? The pic of the loose green moissanite on your website looks similar. If I order from you the stones should be the same color right? I'm sure that's a silly question, but just double checking, I wasn't expecting two completely different colors and sizes and cuts from jtv.com smile

Thanks for your help! If I just order the green moissanite from your website what color will it be? Could you post a real life pic? Oh and please let me know if you have two 5mm round stones of hte mint green color left, thanks!!!

Also were you referring to the stones in the youtube video being the same color or the pics in your thread link on btd? The stones in my video are stones from JTV, and totally different colors in person one is light celery green with yellow in it, the other is a medium light green with blue in it. I'd love to get a matching pair, I think both colors are pretty smile

Yes, we can match the stones if purchased at the same time.

I just saw your video and the one on the left looks like a medium / dark green. The one on the left looks "blah". I am not sure what color that is.

The color on the right is pretty blah, but I thought it was because the cut is not good. The color on the left looks darker in the video, it is a bit daarker than the mint green your posted and looks darker than the green from your website. What color would the green be that you have available now? Is there more than one option?

I like the color better of the minty light one, but the darker one is much more striking and does have a "pop" to the way it is cut, it seems.

I hope you get a refund from JTV.

We only have a few in stock (mostly larger sizes), but we can get a range from our distributor. If you wanted a matching pair of the medium/light color, we can do that.

I actually like both colors but obviously you need a match for earrings and it would be nice to have a well cut stone anyway. smile

JTV sent me a replacement set of stones. They are beautiful & match perfectly. I'll post a video link. I'd love for them to be a little lighter. I wonder if moissiteco can get a pair that looks more like their mint color than this pair...these are bit darker at least by the looks of the pics, but I wonder if they are the same as the moissaniteco mint ones irl bc jtv says they are Charles & colvard "mint"....but they look darker than the pretty color posted in the first link

Whoops here is the link

http://www.youtube.com/my_videos_edit?ns=1&video_id=9NZs4tuQ60k

Any opinions? Do you think moissanite would look better than the current sapphires? They sparkle a lot more & id love a light green smile
