Here are the
changes on the All That Glitters Website for November 2016:
10% off Faceted/Cabbed Synthetic Alexandrite
supplier of Synthetic Alexandrite sells this material to the trade at $120/ct;
it is sold in stores at $360/ct. Since
we obtain our material from the source and facet it ourselves, our pricing has
always been way below the existing whosale price - so now, it is even LOWER!... This is the only synthetic material we sell,
as it is requested in inventory by stores and we have such a sweet price on it,
that many customers (whether the public or trade) appreciate the savings.

been invited to fly out to Montana with this Sapphire for discussions, as well
of a tour of the MT Sapphire Mining areas and to meet those involved in active

well-known gemstone photographer, Robert Weldon).

we are awaiting approval/acceptance from our customer in Singapore.
piece of special Ametrine (Anahi Mine, Bolivia - only place in the world where
it comes from and we have known the mine owner for decades) has been
finished. (We know the mine owner and he
is currently hand picking more uniquely zoned Ametrine rough for us!) This most recently completed Ametrine is an
oval and is over 45cts. The cutting style is concave cut and not the
grooved we have been doing. It takes our cutter about 5-7 days to
complete a large gemstone in the grooved style - it is costly, as you can
imagine, and due to the pressure required to cut and polish, he is due for
shoulder surgery in November. Due to the time, cost and other issues, we
may not be able to create larger gemstones in the grooved cutting style.
Our past pricing of this material has been quite low considering the cost to
cut as well as the unique special rough that is we are known for. Also, a
Chrome Tourmaline and Oregon Sunstone (with schiller) are just back from our
All That Glitters Gemstones to be Studied at GIA:
Moroccan Amethyst with the Enhydro will be in Gems & Gemology Magazine, the
International Gem News section, of the upcoming Fall 2016 issue, which will
mailed from GIA at the end of October. This should also be available
on-line to view.
to New Customers:
We have added
a number of new international customers to the All That Glitters Family this
month, from countries including - Switzerland, France, Singapore and China!
