Hi, I too photo gems & it can b a task-I have a crystal opal & had the same problem-a remedy is to use incandescent & led lights at the same time, experiment but as u move the stone in the light, view thru the camera slowly-when u c ur shot, take it. Digital cameras are a dream to use & easy to reset-takes time & patience-if u want I will post pics of my opal to show what can b done with patience & a few lights-a tripod will help-steve…
