All That Glitters Website and Info Changes for April 2014!

Here are the changes to look for on the All That Glitters Website for April 2014!:

This Month's Special:  Matched Pairs (Ovals) of UNHEATED Natural Ruby!                                                Not something one sees often, Unheated Ruby Pairs and at a give-a-way price!

This Month's Gem News:  Rarest Gemstones - A Matter of Opinion…
View what some believe are the Rarest Gemstones in the World - Do You Agree?
(Tanzanite is on that list…See our low pricing on Tanzanites - as usual, at wholesale!   <  Tanzanite > )

Newly Faceted or Photographed Gemstones:
Topaz Crystal from Utah, Green Transparent Terminated Touramline Crystal from Brasil, Spinels, Tsavorite, Large Burmese Peridot, Tanzanite, Intarsia, Intaglio, Herkimer Diamond with Water and Sand, Color Changing YAG Boule, Mineral Specimens, Inclusions in Quartz (Fluorite, Lodalite, Pyrite and ?), Opals, Hackmanite, Carved Agate, 4 Peaks Arizona Amethyst, 2 Wonderful versions(sizes) of the Welcome Nugget 1880's Original Tobacco Label available....

Videos to Now Appear on the All That Glitters Website:
We have been striving to have a few videos available for some of our special gemstones.  Unfortunately, our rotating display is back east where we used it on our TV Show, The World of Gemstones, back in the last 90s.  We hope to use this in the future to produce a 360 degree view of some gems.  Currently, we have created videos where the gemstone is held in tweezers and rocked back and forth.  We are still experimenting to insure the color/saturation is as accurate as possible.  Please bear with us.  To date, we have three videos and you can view them here, or visit the pages where the gemstone photo and information is to be found.
1.)  Large Fine Burmese Peridot:  Video   ATG Web Page
2.)  Fine Mahenge Neon Pink Spinel:  Video   ATG Web Page
3.)  12+ct Square Cushion Tanzanite:  Video   ATG Web Page

Gemstones in Cutting:
Our gemstone rough that had been out at the cutters has been faceted and received.
Visit our Newly Photographed Gems page to see the latest arrivals!
We do have a Pakistani Topaz Crystal that we hope to have two gemstones faceted from - maybe in the July timeframe.  The owner of All That Glitters may facet this piece  - expected yield is a triangular and square gem!

Transition Back to the All That Glitters Headquarters in Massachusetts:
As of May, we should be back east and most of our inventory should be available, with a few exceptions which are usually noted on our website.
