Watching the JTV gemstone show, I saw a beautiful RED mexican fire opal.
The price was right. I decided to buy it based on the carat weight and the amazing color. When I received it, it was pale yellow. Nothing like the stone being shown under the item number. I returned the fire opal, and wrote a letter to their customer "care" department telling them they should be ashamed of the "bait and switch"! Never heard a word.

    jtv has to many fake stones, the peddle for real gemstones, jtv depends on people who havent got the faintest idea about gemstones, and therefor trusts jtv with their stones, what a wrong way to go, that is what jtv looks for, the know 100% that the can so easely rip those people of, not even have to try /. stay away from every stone you see on jtv the have names for every stone, that in reality does not exist .. the also buy those stones at those gemshows . where the can buy them a dime a dozen... and rip the trusting costumer of 100% and more .. stay away from those stones, jtv peddles fake stones for real gemstones.. the fake russien alexandrite, do not purchase the fake the are showing .it is a 100% fake... fake blue star sapphire.. where you see white streaks plastered from one side of the stone to the other, . do not purchase that piece it is plastic, 100% fake fake sultanite, where you see all those brilliant colors, 100% its a fake, , bamboo coral has been sold for rubys . and it goes on and on .. a friend of mine some time ago, gave to me a whole shoe box full of opals from mexico., , what the call red opal or fire opal . these where raw opals, i dident see one that was the color of what jtv peddles .. the color of everyone of those stone small or larger had those colors. purple red blue lavender green. not one of them had such light red color as jtv shows those, , to me, , the look fake, how can anyone call a stone an opal if there is only one color displayed../. so with the blue and the pink . stay away from those opals, an opal has to have more then one color, dancing inside the stone, , and jet the opal is called a bad lucvk stone.. the clown of all stones, with tears inside...
