All That Glitters Celebrates 33 years in the Gemstone Business and Sees 15 Years Online!  All That Glitters Website to undergo format update by the end of 2014...


The Latest All That Glitters Website News and Changes for July 2014 includes the following:


      Monthly SpecialMultiple Gemstone Monthly Special!

      Monthly News:    Recently Found Blue Diamond Rough Makes Debut!

      Newly Photographed:
Old inventory that hasn't been seen for over 10 years has been pulled from the vault and photographed.  There is a small parcel of Natural Sapphire which has been recystallized so that very fine stars have been created.  This material was certed by GIA in the past and though we didn't request a cert from GIA, we did see the cert.  These 4 Sapphire cabs have very fine stars and would be very costly if entirely natural.  Price to move.
A very nice bright yellow/gold Square Tourmaline is now available as well as a newly faceted gemstone (by the owner of All That Glitters) appears on our Newly Photographed Gemstone Page - 17+ct Square Topaz. 
A 165ct multi-crystal Tourmaline from the Formiga Mine and purchased in 1987 has been photographed and ready for a new home.
The largest Red Burmese Spinel from a parcel has been photographed - weighs in at 1.41cts; smaller than expected as the cutter utilized the shape of the crystal and he did a very good job.  From the side, it has an appearance similar to an old mine/European cut diamond.
Our largest Ruby has a new photograph and more information regarding prices of similar gemstones on the market.  We had an inqiry about this gemstone and the customer was seeking a slightly larger gemstone and had more funds to compensate, but on our inquiry, a similar one weighing about 50pts more (0.50cts) would cost over $80,000 more. 
An inquiry on our 0.63ct GIA Certified Yellow Diamond prompted us to scan the cert and display a link so customers can view the cert.  (This is currently On Hold, but if you have an interest, feel free to contact us)
Two new videos were added - one for the almost 100ct Published Color Change Pink/Lilac/Clear YAG and the unusual Bicolor Opal with the Tiger/Honeycomb Pattern.
Large 200+ct Green Tourmaline Crystal (cluster) from the Famous Cruzeiro Mine
It is here…..Large Scapolite Cab with inclusions - inquiries received already from some of the big players in the mineral world, and a possibility of another publication!  We are waiting to hear back from GIA's Gems and Gemology, though the GIA Gem Lab and AGL replied indicating their surprise as to the displayed phenomenon.
Other items include a Topaz Crystal from Utah, Green Transparent Terminated Tourmaline Crystal from Brasil, Spinels, Tsavorite, Large Burmese Peridot, Tanzanite, Intarsia, Intaglio, Herkimer Diamond with Water and Sand (SOLD!), Color Changing YAG Boule (faceted material from another piece has been Published), Mineral Specimens, Inclusions in Quartz (Fluorite, Lodalite, Pyrite and ?), Opals, Hackmanite, Carved Agate, 4 Peaks Arizona Amethyst, 2 Wonderful versions(sizes) of the Welcome Nugget 1880's Original Tobacco Label available.... Many more gemstones appear on this page as it includes many gemstones that were faceted from our rough a short time ago.


Gemstones in Cutting:
Two Pinkish Beige Topazes are in cutting, as well as some larger Ethiopian Opal.
UPDATE:  One of the Topazes has been completed (see Newly Photographed Gemstones section above) and the other is expected back from one of our local cutters shortly.  The Ethiopian Opal has had some issues due to unforeseen inclusions that we have been forced to cut around, making small pieces.  Also, a unique transparent section of the piece has been faceted vs. cabbed.  Similar to many other pieces of rough Opal or even colored gemstones, this will be a loss for us, but should produce some interested pieces for our customers at our expected low prices.


All That Glitters Customers Set their Gemstones into Custom Jewelry:
Two more customers have shared their jewelry creations recently.  Even if one is unfamiliar with jewelry, one will probably recognize craftmanship and quality.  Many of our customers have used well-known goldsmiths to create the appropriate mountings for their Fine All That Glitters Gemstones - Quality Gemstones deserve Quality Mountings!  
Custom Jewelry Created with ATG Gems!  >


We've Added a New Very Special Page:
The All That Glitters Diamond Search Engine is here.  Many have contacted us in the past wanting to see us offer Diamonds at similarly low prices as our Colored Gemstones.  We have teamed up with our associates to bring to the online public a Diamond Search Engine which will allow one to search for the carat weight, color, make, ratios, certs and everything else that one could want - including immediate pricing!  The only limit one has is that we mandate that Diamonds found have either a GIA or EGL (USA) Certificiate indicating clarity, color, cut, carat  weight, proportions, etc.  This has many advantages.  Visit the ATG Diamond Search Engine for yourself and/or recommend it to those who are seeking Diamonds!

All That Glitters/L. Allen Brown - In The News:
We understand from one of our customers in the United Kingdom, that our large faceted Kyanite was published in a gemology related trade publication.  Several interesting pieces of All That Glitters were photographed impromptu while in Tucson by a member representing The Gemological Association of Great Britain.  The group of three ooohh-ed and aaahh-ed over all the items shown from the All That Glitters Collection.  We are waiting to receive a copy of their publication and had hoped for a link to share with our customers, but that link is proprietary and requires a username/password.  We have received a few copies of the magazine and scanned the related section related to the Color Change YAG.  We did not scan the image of the Kyanite as it is sold, but you can still see this wonderful Kyanite and smaller Kyanites (also published in a book on gemstones previously) on the links below.
Read/view available information on the following links:
Large Sapphire-like Kyanite:  <  Kyanite  >
Approx 100ct Color Change YAG (pink/lilac/clear):  <  CC YAG >

A few more of our gemstones have been published and appear on line - The International Gem Society!  This includes Ammolite and Sphene and the wonderful fact is that they represent their gemstone species!  Below are the two links where you can read more.  Note that two of the Sphenes in the article are available for sale, as well as the one Rare Ammolite with the Blue Flash!

News from Abroad: 
Same old story over the past few years - Prices of Fine Quality Colored Gemstones continue to climb...Very little fine rough is available and those pieces are extremely high.  China continues to be a major player in the increase in pricing around the world.

  " ... one thing that has impressed me through this venture is that you have treated me as if I were a long time favored customer. You realize
that, to me, my stone is just as precious as that purchased by a true connoisseur for many thousands of dollars. I appreciate that -- it is a piece of what makes this experience special...your kid glove treatment is part and parcel of my one of a kind gem/ring."

 "Your inventory is varied, and aside from the “common” materials you stock, it seems you carry many rare and unusual materials not usually seen. The quality of all the gemstones you list is incredibly high. You certainly have and list top end representations of the varied materials your gemstones are cut from.... For what it’s worth I greatly enjoy browsing your site, thanx…"

  "I have a small (just me) custom gemstone faceting business in Denver Colorado. I stumbled upon your site while “Googling” several months ago. I wanted to let you know what a fantastic website you have! It’s an easy to navigate site. It’s got so much great thru your photographs, see what’s new, as the pics are my favorite part. I know only a few sites who inform viewers if a photo of a gem doesn’t have the correct color in the pic. color change, highly saturated, or deep toned pieces is almost an art unto itself. I must say it’s an “art” you’ve certainly mastered. I’ve struggled quite a lot trying to get good high quality pictures of my gemstones. I’ve yet to get anywhere near the quality of the photos on your site. Your inventory is varied, and aside from the “common” materials you stock, it seems you carry many rare and unusual materials not usually seen. The quality of all the gemstones you list is incredibly high. You certainly have and list top end representations of the varied materials your gemstones are cut from.... For what it’s worth I greatly enjoy browsing your site, thanx… "

really appreciate it. I am impressed at how you take time out for the

favorite suppliers for my company. Thank you again."
