Currently in the Cutting Process by Our Award Winning Master Cutter:
There is nothing currently in faceting. Though many might think that companies are selling their inventory at lower prices due to economic
circumstances, fine gemstones and gemstone rough is not only holding their prices, but increasing. We haven't been purchasing
much rough as the very fine rough we seek is not available; and when it is, the prices for the rough are far higher than gemstones we currently have already faceted and available for sale! All larger important rough in our inventory has currently been faceted, and no other material is being re-faceted. Though we have some fine blue green, neony blue, teal and similar colors in Tourmaline from the Nuristan area of Afghanistan, we have sufficient gemstones already faceted and have no plans to facet this old and valuable material for the time being.
