Gems for Resto

well before 2.4, i used royal nightseye almost exclusivly. (+9 healing and 2mp5). I had two of the +4int/2mp5 gems just to maintain the gem requirement on my meta gem.
Now i'm replacing my royal nightseye's for the shadow pearl ones (+9 healing and 4 spirit). Though its a slow process. Drop rates on the pearls seem to be horrible, and they dont seem to be able to be mined like the other uncut gems. Last one i found on the AH was 50g, but it was the only one i had seen in a week. So it may take quite a while to replace all my old gems.
For the most part i ignore socket bonus' unless they are really good. I'll try to match up the 2x yellow gems i need for my meta gem to get a socket bonus out of them, making their impact less severe, but other than that i usually just ignore socket bonus's.
It depends on the socket bonus. Look at what you get with assorted gems + bonus compared to "best" gem and decide. If i have a +9 healing socket bonus for example, I'm not going to hesitate much between a +9 healing/4spi and a +18 heal. (it's usually more complex than that with a tradeoff between stats though)
