Newly Faceted or Photographed Gemstones: 
We have been notified that the faceting of our rough has been completed.  Due to our transition from the West Coast to the East Coast, we have instructed delivery to be the first week of July on the East Coast.   We should have the following items below photographed and on-line in about mid-July if all goes well:  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.         
Check in weekly to see if the latest arrivals have posted:   http://www.allthatglitters.co/Photos_New.htm  
                                                                                
Gemstones in Cutting:
Numerous gemstone species will be available in mid-July – see above paragraph.
We also have a large approximately 100ct Oregon Sunstone that will be carved by the multi-award winning cutter, Dalan Hargrave.  This will be available in about 6 months, and we may even enter it into a cutting competition in the future.
Another large Sunstone will be discussed with another multi-award winning cutter in the future to determine how we will facet this other important piece…

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:  http://www.worldgemfoundation.com/GTMay2018/html5forpc.html?page=20
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, etc.in 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!
