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.

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

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!
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.
