This Month's Gem News: GIA Discusses
Bumble Bee 'Jasper'
seeing this material in the past during our travels through Asia, we purchased two
fine pieces for inventory. We have sold
the larger piece, but a nice example for only $50 is available and can be found
on the following page:
Newly Faceted or Photographed Gemstones:
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!
really nice Tourmaline Crystal Specimen from Mount Mica, Maine is available.
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.
of gemstones that haven't been seen from our vaults in 30 years have been
photographed and include Ouro Preto Topaz, Tourmaline, Bi-Color Tourmaline,
large Star Sapphire (almost 6cts) has been certed; has a great sharp star and
is multi-colored. This is a unique gem for either a man/woman's jewelry
piece; great for a collection because of the colors one sees!
a request from one of our customers interested in Diaspore, we re-photographed
a few of our smaller gems and have posted those photos. She did make a
purchase and we are awaiting its arrival/approval by the customer. It is
also possible we will design a custom ring for this Diaspore.
inventory that hasn't been seen for over 10-30 years has been pulled from the
vault and photographed. This includes a small parcel of Natural Sapphire
which has been recrystallized so that very fine stars have been created.
This material was certed by GIA in the past and though we didn't request a cert
from GIA, we did see the cert. These 4 Sapphire cabs have very fine stars
and would be very costly if entirely natural. Priced to move.
very nice bright yellow/gold Square Tourmaline is now available as well as a
newly faceted gemstone (by the owner of All That Glitters) appears on our Newly
Photographed Gemstone Page - a 17+ct Square Topaz. A related 20+ct Square
Topaz from the same piece of rough is also available; this is slightly darker
and like the one above, the color is best under lower light levels and also
seems to color shift depending on the lights. Both are very large
gemstones, well faceted, clean and at a low price when one considers the size
We will have some more Opal available possibly in late
September. Prices of this material continue to climb and will continue to
do so. The time to purchase is now. We might be faceting a few gemstones in
crystal clear quartz with a rutile needle for special optical effects. We will have more information at the end of
New Page Dedicated to Maine Tourmaline:
Many people seek out gemstones mined in the
United States and especially Maine Tourmaline.
We have dedicated a new page to Maine Tourmaline - faceted and mineral
specimens when available. Pricing for
Maine Tourmaline has always been high, and we continue to keep our prices low
compared to what is on the market.
All That Glitters - New Website Design Coming….!
have been working on an entirely new design for the All That Glitters website
as the last major design change was back in 2005 and formats, navigation,
look/feel, etc. of websites have changed quite a bit! We hope to announce the release in the not
too distance future. There will be less
text and reading, and easier navigation to find pages of interest. Stay tuned - unexpected unveiling in
