All That Glitters Website and Info Changes for September 2012!

Here are the changes to look for on the All That Glitters Website for September 2012:

This Months Special: 2.21ct Luscious Purplish Emerald Cut Sapphire - GIA Certed!
A really nice purple Sapphire – Save $$$!

This Months Gem News: A Few of the All That Glitters Extraordinary One of a Kind Gemstones!
We’ve selected a few very special gemstones that have either been GIA Certed or have come back from the cutters recently.

Newly Faceted or Photographed Gemstones:
The second Kunzite faceted from our museum quality specimen, originating from a famous California mine, is off of our Award Winning Supreme Master Gemcutters dop. It is a very unique color, a light bluish lavender to a light pink, similar to Pink Ice. Because it is a lighter color, it really sparkles as the light is not being absorbed.
A very fine well cut clean Namibian Blue Tourmaline is now available - Don't Miss This Gem!
The 20 gems we had certed by GIA are all displayed on the Newly Photographed Page at the present time. Some One-of-a-Kind Truly Rare Gems are included in those that have been certed. GIAs Gem Lab enjoyed looking at the Bicolor Demantoid Garnet as well as the others.
A 2.77ct Green Blue Emerald Cut Tourmaline from Nuristan which was U.S. Facetd has been rephotographed; and a Matched Pair of Nuristani Tourmalines faceted by our cutters from rough that is about 15 years old has finally been photographed!

Gemstones in Cutting:
We are faceting that gorgeous Natural Kunzite Crystal from the Big Kahuna area of the Oceanview Mine!
Will be some incredibly intense colors in these gems when faceted. Of course, our Award Winning Master Cutter is the only choice to facet these important gemstones. We anticipate some of the finest Kunzite every seen, with a color that is a bluish purple pink. It should stabilize to a deep pink, but Kunzite is known as an evening gemstone; keep it out of the sun and bright lights, and the color is pretty much stabile. Irradiated Kunzite being sold by Brasilians, was selling at $200/ct wholesale for dark pinks. We should be able to provide better color, gems in smaller sizes and the BEST cutting available, as our Master Cutter is doing the faceting!
==> The third gemstone of the above mentioned crystal is currently being trimmed and roughly shaped. We will determine if we will continue and facet this one, or move to the two larger remaining pieces.
