So sorry to hear that. I have purchased very inexpensive stones of good size in the Caribbean (Tanzanite, etc, even a diamond), but I always ask for a jeweler's glass and look at them closely for defects.

But I think they prey upon people who do not inspect them, giving them the "tourista" price first just to see what happens.
