Ron is on the lookout for a massive piece of imperial topaz for a wealthy private investor who wants a 20-carat gem. He plans to make a killing by buying it rough and cutting it himself. Diane is also after an iconic Brazilian stone, the fabled deep-blue Santa Maria aquamarine. Her investor is willing to spend $10,000 for one spectacular stone.
