Newly Faceted or Photographed Gemstones: 
New incredibly beautiful, approx. 35ct Ametrine faceted in the U.S. by one of our masterful cutters….Check it out!
Beautiful Pentagon Shaped 26+ Ametrine from All That Glitters Rough faceted by an incredible cutter known for his work on Quartz…  (SOLD!)
An incredible 40+ct Ametrine, flat faceted in a specially designed unique cut which shows off many colors by a cutter known for cutting quartz!
Second Chance at a wonderfully etched meteorite on one side and the naturally occurring original surface on the other (SOLD!)
Two Certed 3+ Spinels, one being a purply rose and the other more of a purple – both priced to move… (SOLD!)
We have 4 U.S. Faceted Umbalite Garnets, two squares, one square cushion (this 4.18ct gem is Under Consideration), one round, all with the same properties:  depending on the lights, the color can be burgundy wine, ruby red or magenta.  We haven’t been able to obtain really good photos of these pieces.  Two of these do appear on the website.  Weights range from 3+cts to 6+cts and are priced at $100/ct. A very low price for unique color shifting that we haven’t seen before.
Gemstones in Cutting:
We are working with another cutter for the first time, to facet another Ametrine.  We hope to see an incredibly beautiful gem in the next few weeks.  Stay tuned!
The last two pieces of specialty Ametrine rough may be given to our cutter who has been doing the flat faceting on this material.  If so, we would expect two more pieces to be posted perhaps in January.
We have two large 100ct Oregon Sunstones that will be carved and/or cut by the multi-award winning cutter, Dalan Hargrave.  We hope that these pieces from Dalan will be received by the end of the year, but it is very possible that the items will not be available until about the timeframe of the Tucson Show.

The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is Just Around the Corner:
Before you know it, people will be leaving for the Tucson Show!  We do not plan on displaying this year, but considering 2020.  We will continue to meet our customers, those from the United States and those that fly in from other countries.  Our inventory is split between both the east and west coasts, so contact us to learn if items you have an interest in are available for us to bring to Tucson.  Arrangements can be made to view items in person, so one can admire the internal brilliance, external polish/sparkle and color under various lights.  This is a great opportunity to see some of  the All That Glitters inventory in person!
