Here are the
changes on the All That Glitters Website for January 2017:
Nice Green 3.39ct Peridot, Well Cut & Clean!

Month's Gem News:
Spinel Becomes Another Option for August
becoming even more Bullish in sales and now as an official August Birthstone,
sales should increase as well as pricing - and prices for fine Spinel has
always been high, but is going higher with time.

have been Certed by GIA and appear on our Newly Photographed page displaying
their newly acquired certs.
We are VERY
excited about two incredibly beautiful, one-of-a-kind Ametrines just came back
from our cutter. We are contemplating entering them into the AGTA Cutting
Edge Competition; they are priced behind the scenes prior to the contest
opening, should anyone be interested. Send us an email if you would like
to be the new owner!
4.99ct Pear Shaped Chrome Tourmaline as well as a
shaped curved, multi-stepped Oregon Sunstone full of Copper Schiller is also
back from our specialty cutter - look at the cutting and you will see what
these are special.

Fall Edition of Gems & Gemology Magazine!
Orangy Pink (Pad-Colored) Mahenge Spinel
last Grooved Ametrine, in a square shape, with wonderful color separation as
well as mixing of color.
Herkimer Diamond Cluster with typical contrasting inclusions
We will not
be faceting the two large Tourmalines noted in last month's monthly email - the
consensus was that the color and return would not be in keeping with All That
Glitters high quality and expectations.
One of our
cutters does have a piece of Color Changing Diaspore that he is considering how
he will work his magic. Due to the difficulty in cutting this material
and the careful consideration required, we do hope to have this finished before
the end of 2017. (Yes, that is 2017) He might have received this
rough as far back as 2015…
The owner of
the mine that produces the Ametrine rough has sent us a parcel of the unique
material we enjoy working with - all hand-picked by him based on our
needs. Three pieces are in the possession of our concave cutter. We
hope to have some finished pieces by mid to late February.
