All That Glitters Website and Info Changes for June 2018!

Here are the changes on the All That Glitters Website for June 2018:

This Month's Special:  Wonderfully Etched Meteorite Slice with Two Tanzanites!
Wonderful meteorite slice showing incredible etching, origin is Russia (Seymchan). Tanzanite rounds in two opposing corners. An interesting piece for jewelry design, a curio cabinet, collection, etc. Very Unique and probably not to be found elsewhere.

This Month's Gem News:   The Legend of Bolivianite (Ametrine) – Featuring 4 Ametrines from All That Glitters!
The word ‘Ametrine’ comes from the contraction of Amethyst and Citrine, which was taken, respectively, from the first two and the last two syllables…

The beautifully bright orange round Tourmaline that came back from our cutter over the past month was identified as having a weight of
3.85cts – the weight is actually 7.73cts!  The price was correct, but with a much smaller weight, the calculated and displayed price per carat was incorrect.  The weight is now displaying correctly at 7.73cts – this is a gorgeous piece for those who haven’t seen it on our website previously.  It can be viewed as the first gemstone on the first Tourmaline page, as well as being the 5th gemstone currently displayed on the Newly Photographed page…

Newly Faceted or Photographed Gemstones: 
Large 12+ct Umbalite Garnet – Priced to move; a 7+ct Umbalite was selling at $1100/ct retail and our price blows that away, not to mention the size!
Fancy Golden Orange Tanzanite of just under 5cts – the unique and beautiful doesn’t get better!
Bright Fine Orange Tourmaline weighing almost 8cts! – check it out…
5.69ct Oval Rhodolite, slightly dark but nice color and sparkle under lights – a give-a-way for this size and U.S. Cutting!
Two Beautiful Deep Chrome Green Tsavorites, under a carat each, great color, sparkle, etc.  SOLD to the Trade!
7.78ct Watermelon Sunstone from Oregon Faceted by one of our Multi-Award Winning Cutters!

3 pieces of Amber with Insects – to be sold with Brass Display Stands
4 pieces of Newly Discovered “Ametrine Traphiche” Quartz – ALL pieces to be written up in Gems & Gemology this year!  (Summer 2018)
Large 2,700+ct Quartz Crystal with various inclusions including attractive sprays of fine crystals – when lit from the base, it Glows…
Note – the Amber (3) and Meteorites (2) may go to auction, and if all goes well in the past, their selling price could be 2-5 times the All That Glitters price.  We are waiting for the contract as well as price ranges and reserves.  Due to the interest in auctions, this particular company has been slow and we might consider another auction house or keep them on our website for a longer timeframe, offering the trade and the public continued
great deals!...
Gemstones in Cutting:
Currently in Cutting - Large Bluish Purple Amethyst (Rwanda); Smaller Sized Bluish Purple Amethyst (Congo); Orangy Zircon(2); Medium Sized Rhodolite/Umbalite Garnet; Small ‘Test’ Gemstones which include Fancy Rare Garnet (various colors), Zircon and Orangy Tourmaline.  Due in shortly, but won’t be in our database, photographed and on line until perhaps the July timeframe.  Our goal would be to have them available for our July email, but that may be difficult as we will be in transit essentially until the end of June and won’t have sufficient time to do all the work required before we send that email to our valued customers.

All That Glitters In The News:
Gerard Quintin from the South American Gem Academy contacted All That Glitters about an upcoming article as he desired some of our unique fine examples of Ametrine.  Geoffrey Dominy, whom we met and have been in contact with for about 30 years, then reached out for more photos and info for this article.  The World Gem Foundation is responsible for Gemology Today, and Geoff is the founder, as well as a relatively new publisher of books on gemstones.  We expect some of our gemstone to be in his future books as well as other articles.  The Ametrine article may be viewed on the following link:
All four of these unique and beautiful Ametrines are currently available for those who wish to own a one-of-a-kind published gemstone.
Our gemstones have appeared in magazines, books, newspapers, trade journals and even websites such as International Gem Society as many of All That Glitters gems represent the gemstone species on their website!  All That Glitters/L. Allen Brown may be the most published gemstone business as far as photos of unique, fine and extraordinary color, as well as the least known since we haven’t displayed in Tucson since 1990 or exhibited in a show open to the public since 2003!  That could change with 2019, as we might display in Tucson again, and if not in 2019, we certainly hope to in 2020 – so put it on your calendar and plan to visit our booth!  We will note our location, booth, hours, our monthly emails prior to the show.

The newly photographed “Ametrine Trapiche” that we recently added into inventory and that is a new find originating in Brasil, will be
featured in an article (Summer 2018) in the well-known Gems & Gemology Magazine by GIA.  All That Glitters Unique and Rare Gemstones have appeared in Gems & Gemology Magazine on a regular basis, with the first article being 1996 noting the newly discovered Imperial Malaia Garnet, named by the owner of All That Glitters.  All four new acquisitions will appear in the article, with three being available for sale!
