Gemstone Dealer Alexander Judt From Germany Arrested by Immigration Police For...

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I know this man, he's no gems dealer, he's a small time junky and crook hustling tourists and gems traders in Pailin. He operates various scams based on racket commissions with traders or selling fake gems, this is probably why he was arrested. We went to Pailin to buy gems last October and had a hard time getting him off our shoes, he was such a drag. I'm glad they got rid of him.

I assumed all that was practically the "job description" for a gems dealer in South East Asia, no?

Actually all gems I bought in shops there were natural, I had them tested in Singapore, it's only guys who hustle you in the street like this Alex dude who try to sell you synthetic. There was also a new laboratory there but I didn't have time to get the certificates from there.

big but ugly window. cut way too shallow.
price maybe not crazy high.
little too much grey in it.
Actually if it's 140ct, if it's not shallow it can't be used right? you don't want an eiffel tower on your finger or neck. But the proportion crown/pavillion are off, it keeps the light and makes it black, you are right. But as I said, I don't think it's the gem's height, rather the crown height. Now should it be higher or lower, beats me, I'm not a lapidary.
But in the end, if it's a stone presented by this Alex dude, it's probably a fake stone, a blue topaz at best, so end of discussion lol :greet:

Alexander Judt was arrested again today.
From Nokorwatnews:

- Alexander Judt, a German national aged 46, was taken into custody today, 21 August 2017, by Cambodian police, presumably for overstaying his visa, a one year E visa extension which expired in Febuary 2017. He has reportedly been living in Pailin for the past ten years.

No, he's been there for about 4 years only, he was in PP before, where he abandoned 2 kids he had with a junkie bargirl.
He's really scum and I hope he gets deported.
