All That Glitters Website and Info Changes for February 2013!

Here are the changes to look for on the All That Glitters Website for February 2013:

This Month's Special:   Round Andradite Garnet - Super Dispersion!
A really super example with great cutting and clarity, not to mention super dispersion.

This Month's Gem News:   True, But Odd Stories in The World of Gemstones…
Thief swallows $14k diamond at gem show
A Chicken Nugget Can Be as Good as a Gold Nugget
Read the stories as found online and In The News!

Newly Faceted or Photographed Gemstones: 
Currently there are no newly photographed gemstones, though we anticipate a few over the next few months.

Gemstones in Cutting:
There are no gemstones currently in cutting with the exception of a few custom faceted Synthetic Alexandrites that are already spoken for; the customer resides in Australia and requested a cutting design he had seen on line!

Tucson Show:
We are attending our 27th (or so) Tucson Show.  The last time we exhibited there was about 1990.  We have typically been attending and walking the floors to meet up with our friends/associates from other countries who fly in for the show.  We obtain information as to what is being discovered in other countries, what material is increasing in price (and that is typcially all fine quality material regardless of species!), etc.  It would also be slightly difficult to display there as many of our trade associates purchase from us and sell to the trade at the Tucson Show.
