Re: chocolate dimonds?

Yes, there are brown, yellow, blue, pink from Australia and they are EXPENSIVE. Even one rare red diamond in the Smithsonian collection and on display last I heard. Chocolate brown would be relatively opaque but i believe i saw several on the internet a few weeks ago. Most jewlery store do not stock them due to the low demand but they can be ordered. Diamonds have been found in just about evry color though they are referred to as "Fancies" and the price goes accordingly. Remeber the three c's. Color, Cut, Clarity and the one "M", = MONEY.
Personally being a cheap-skate (or so my wife says) I would use a large transparent rose quartz and a nice smokey brown quartz (natural stone not irradiated to be black). A lot cheaper and a lot more bling for the buck. You should still be able to afford the chocolates and roses to go with them.
