The prime value factor for this gem is color, with medium dark green stones at the top. Such a stone in a larger size (2 cts or more) is especially rare since so many larger pieces suffer from light extinction and are too dark. Cat'seye stones bring a premium price. Fine cutting enhances value considerably by adding scintillation and brilliance.

Looking back through the last page or two, I see that I have made it appear as though my motives in writing were wholly public-spirited. I don't want to leave that as the final impression. All writers are vain, selfish, and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives there lies a mystery. Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand. For all one knows that demon is simply the same instinct that makes a baby squall for attention. And yet it is also true that one can write nothing readable unless one constantly struggles to efface one's own personality. Good prose is like a windowpane. I cannot say with certainty which of my motives are the strongest, but I know which of them deserve to be followed. And looking back through my work, I see that it is invariably where I lacked a political purpose that I wrote lifeless books and was betrayed into purple passages, sentences without meaning, decorative adjectives and humbug generally.
Because of nearsighted elected politicians like Jonathan Brostoff this is why Milwaukee continues to decline. This clown couldn’t see the forest for the trees. Ramble on in your childish rants against Scott Walker and Donald Trump and then offer an idiotic idea about investing money in small businesses who may hire a handful of people but not pay them a family supporting wage rather than bringing in FoxConn who will offer family supporting wages and also attract additional large corporations that offer jobs with family supporting wages.
