All That Glitters Website and Info Changes for December 2018!

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


This Month's Special:  12.48ct Ethiopian Opal, Natural, Unique and One-of-a-kind!

This Month's Gem News:   New Facts About the Hope Diamond Revealed
Read More…

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!

All That Glitters Website and Info Changes for November 2018!


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

This Month's Special:  

This Month's Gem News:   World's Most Expensive Coloured Gem Sells for $30M
The Sunrise Ruby has become the world's most expensive coloured gemstone, selling for $30M at auction…
Read More…

Newly Faceted or Photographed Gemstones: 
http://www.allthatglitters.co/Photos_New.htm
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! (Under Consideration!)
Second Chance at a wonderfully etched meteorite on one side and the naturally occurring original surface on the other (removed from website – see below)
(Will be auctioned off shortly with other meteorites and coincides with the Neil Armstrong auction – contact us for more info if interested!)
Two Certed 3+ Spinels, one being a purply rose and the other more of a purple – both priced to move… (and NOW this Months Special!)
We have 4 U.S. Faceted Umbalite Garnets, two squares, one square cushion, 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 have two large 100ct Oregon Sunstones that will be carved and/or cut by the multi-award winning cutter, Dalan Hargrave. 
These should be available with the next few months.
Many have really drooled over the flat faceted Ametrines recently faceted by one of our cutters, and this standard faceting is less expensive than concaving. 
Another one is currently in cutting – we know it will be a pentagon, a perfect shape for a pendant!  Should be available by early Nov, but might not be in our hands until mid-November when we are settled in our West Coast office for the winter.  We have also given a new cutter another piece of this material to see what his thoughts are and what he feels can do with the material.  If all goes well, we will have him facet this piece and will offer it to our customers in mid-November also.  He is another extremely talented cutter and we hope to utilize his services in the future with other rough we have or will obtain in the future.

All That Glitters LARGE Ruby Photographed:
The talented Gemstone/Mineral Photographer Jeffrey A. Scovil, while set up at the Big E in Springfield, MA (08/10/18), photographed our incredible 5.67ct, GIA Certified UNHEATED Purple Red Ruby. Incredible size, cutting, clarity, etc. One of the most important gems in our 37 year inventory!  The photo has been received and has been posted with more information, as well as the cert.  Color rendition is not the best and even if we were to view the correct color on our office laptop, it is guaranteed that the image color will vary from device to device.  The GIA cert indicates that it is a purplish red, and it does have a glow to it also.

Gemstones in Cutting:
We have two large 100ct Oregon Sunstones that will be carved and/or cut by the multi-award winning cutter, Dalan Hargrave.

All That Glitters In The News:
Trapiche-like Amethyst from Brazil - GIA just released the Summer 2018 Edition of Gems & Gemology Magazine with an article on new gem-related material that they expressed an interest in examining more closely, after L. Allen Brown’s discussion with them at the GIA Booth within the AGTA Show, Jan/Feb 2018. The article has just been released online and in print.  All four new acquisitions appear in the article, with three being available for sale!
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. 

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 That Glitters Website and Info Changes for September 2018!

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

This Month's Special: 

This Month's Gem News:   Trapiche-like Amethyst from Brazil
Four trapiche-like amethyst cabochons were submitted to GIA’s Carlsbad laboratory by L. Allen Brown (All That Glitters, Methuen, Massachusetts) for scientific examination…
GIA just released the Summer 2018 Edition of Gems & Gemology Magazine with an article on new gem-related material that they expressed an interest in examining more closely, after L. Allen Brown’s discussion with them at the GIA Booth within the AGTA Show, Jan/Feb 2018. The article has just been released online and in print.  All four new acquisitions appear in the article, with three being available for sale!
Read More…

Newly Faceted or Photographed Gemstones: 
A flat faceted blended Ametrine, recently faceted by a new cutter, came and left quickly as soon as someone viewed it in person!
Two Certed 3+ Spinels recently arrived, one being a purply rose and the other more of a purple – both priced to move…
The owner of All That Glitters has faceted three gemstones over the past 2 months – one 4.30ct Oregon Sunstone (yellow and in the All That Glitters Elegante Specialty Design), two Umbalite (Rhodolite Garnets), one being a 4.30ct Square and another a 6.45ct (11+mm) Round.  Very difficult to capture the brilliance and color in a photo and only the square is displayed on the website.  Like the Garnet parcel noted further below, the color tends to be Burgundy Wine under fluorescent, but under incandescent it is Ruby Red and with light containing more blue (such as diffused daylight), it more magenta, which is the color expected from Umbalite Garnet.  Both are very brilliant under incandescent or other lights, but don’t show the brilliance under fluorescent.  Properties of these garnets are therefore quite unique in more ways than one!
Last month, a package arrived from our cutters containing gemstones where were faceted from our rough:
Orange Zircon(2 pieces, the smaller one has SOLD!); Bright Yellow Zircon: Small ‘Test’ Gemstones which include Fancy Rare Garnet (various colors – yellow, padparadscha, imperial/champagne), Purple Garnet (SOLD!) and Orange Tourmaline(SOLD!).  We attempted to photograph some of the Blue Flash Amethyst as well as the Rhodolite/Umbalite Garnet (3 matched pairs and 3 singles), but color rendition wasn’t good enough for posting.  We were also hoping on selling these two parcels to dealers, as we have a few whom would probably love to have these in inventory.  Two of the Amethysts sold while at a goldsmiths, and we will attempt to photo the remaining two pieces, of which, we really believe
the goldsmith missed the boat as they say, as the large emerald cut as it glows with a blue purple!
                                                                                
Gemstones in Cutting:
We have two large 100ct Oregon Sunstones that will be carved and/or cut by the multi-award winning cutter, Dalan Hargrave.  These will be available in about 6 months.
Considering sending one of our Blended Ametrine pieces of rough to the same cutter who flat faceted our previous one which was another hit!

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.

Newly Faceted or Photographed Gemstones: 
Newly arrived from our cutters and faceted from All That Glitters rough, we have posted photos for the following items:
Orange Zircon(2 pieces, the smaller one has SOLD!); Small ‘Test’ Gemstones which include Fancy Rare Garnet (various colors – yellow, padparadscha, imperial/champagne), Purple Garnet (SOLD!) and Orange Tourmaline(SOLD!).  We attempted to photograph some of the Blue Flash Amethyst as well as the Rhodolite/Umbalite Garnet (3 matched pairs and 3 singles), but color rendition wasn’t good enough for posting.  We were also hoping on selling these two parcels to dealers, as we have a few whom would probably love to have these in inventory.  While we await an appointment, if you have an interest, we can tell you what sizes, shapes, colors and prices are associated with them.
                                                                                
Gemstones in Cutting:
We also have two large 100ct Oregon Sunstones that will be carved and/or cut by the multi-award winning cutter, Dalan Hargrave.  These will be available in about 6 months.

All That Glitters at Auction!:
We have five wonderful items at auction in August with Heritage Auctions.  The pieces consist of 3 Copal Pieces with Insects and two beautifully etched Russian Meteorites.  The difference between Copal and Amber is age – where Amber is older than Copal.  Though we purchased the pieces as Amber and the differentiation of Copal from Amber can be difficult at times unless the included insects can be dated due to being extinct, the items listed are described as Copal.  There is a debate about Columbian ‘Amber’ as some say it is true Amber and others claim it is not as old as it should be to deemed Amber, therefore it is Copal.  Whatever you want to call them, all three pieces have beautifully detailed preserved insects and come with brass stands!!   View the Preserved Insects in Fossilized Tree Resin/Sap as well as the Meteorites on the following page – and Bid Now prior to the auction starting or attend the auction live on-line!!

All That Glitters In The News:
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.  The edition will be mailed to subscribers in early August and I have been told that the link to the article will be available about August 9th or so.  When we have seen it appear on line, we plan on having the link on our main website page, on our Learn More page, and in our September Monthly Email.  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!

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…
Read More…

Correction:
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!

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:

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!
