Tainted Love - the slow decline of the epic gem.

I'm going to keep this brief for now but I hope to pontificate more in the near future about this.
Epic Gems are slowly but surely starting to lost the sweet 60-100g profit margin ( on bought uncut gems anyways ). Today I saw Runed Cardinals selling for 140g on my server - and to makes matters worse there were 6 sellers at this.  Some I recognised other not. Now I can only assume the normal sellers did't pay much attention to the notices when using QA about who and how much etc but it's slightly disconcerting. What with the inevitable spike in demand with 3.3 soon upon us I would be hoping they don't drop much further. Even so, I bought out the ones at 140g (roughly 7 gems) and only posted 1 at 190g. The plan is to store them for the next patch unless these prices from today were a blip, an anomaly. At least they wre cheaper than what I've paid for the uncut rubies previously so should save some time.
The main thing is I can afford to take a small risk like that but would hope not to be diving in there too often again.

Gripe of the day: Transmutation procs suck the donkey's dong.... 1 in 10 days and for only one extra Amber. At the end of the second week, if it hasnt picked up my specialisation is returning to elixir.
