All That Glitters Website and Info Changes for the December 2014!

Our updated website has been well received by our customers who contacted us via email.  If you have not visited the updated All That Glitters website recently, you will find navigation much easier, as well as less text and reading on our main entry page.  It is almost 2015 - another quick year…

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

This Month's Special:  10% off ALL Yellow Beryl (Heliodor) Gemstones                                                                            

This Month's Gem News:  Tanzanite Foundation Shutting Down
The New York City–based Tanzanite Foundation will cease operations…

Newly Faceted or Photographed Gemstones:
Nothing new to report, but we hope to have some wonderful pieces over the next few months!  Below, you will find a few pieces added to inventory and/or photographed over the past few months:
We missed a 1.69ct oval Tsavorite that we photographed years ago and it never appeared on our Photos page - view it now!
A Matched Pair of Ruby Ovals, Unheated and at a special price….
A Purple Triangular Mozambique Tourmaline and as well as a Smoky Orangy Mozambique Tourmaline and a Blue Mozambique Tourmaline are now available.
A unique Terminated Amethyst Crystal with a large spherical grouping of Smoky Quartz Crystals is available - unique and two very important mineral dealers have never seen anything like it!
A really nice Tourmaline Crystal Specimen from Mount Mica, Maine is available.
Yellow Beryl Crystals, for a collection or setting into pendants, are available.  One includes a face that has been polished to show the wonderful etching that is available on the back.

All That Glitters - New Website is here….!
After being updated in late 2005/early 2006, it was time to update our website again as it appeared 'dated'.  We believe that the new look/design will allow very easy navigation to all of our Photos pages.  The update is now live and available, so when you visit, you will see our new pages, of which there are about 180 pages.  Please feel free to tell us whether there are missing photos, broken links, what you like and even more important, what you don't like and we will attempt to correct the issue.
You can visit us via the following links:

Gemstones in Cutting:

Our hopes of increasing our Opal inventory with large fine quality Opals have been dashed.  After removing the mud/matrix from what seemed to be outstanding Opal, we were left with smaller pieces after trimming out issues, grinding down areas, etc.  This represents a loss of thousands of dollars, but this is the risk when one purchases rough material - as one is never sure what the final outcome will be…
