All That Glitters Celebrates 33 years in the Gemstone Business and Sees 15 Years Online! (All That Glitters Website to undergo format update by end of 2014...)
The Latest All That Glitters Website News and Changes for September 2014 includes the following:
Monthly Special: Multiple Gemstone Monthly Special!
Monthly News: GIA Discusses Bumble Bee 'Jasper'
A unique Terminated Amethyst Crystal with a large spherical grouping of Smoky Quartz Crystals is available - unique and two very important mineral dealers have never seen anything like it!
A really nice Tourmaline Crystal Specimen from Mount Mica, Maine is available.
Yellow Beryl Crystals, for a collection or setting into pendants, are available. One includes a face that has been polished to show the wonderful etching that is available on the back.
Parcels of gemstones that haven't been seen from our vaults in 30 years have been photographed and include Ouro Preto Topaz, Tourmaline, Bi-Color Tourmaline, etc.
A large Star Sapphire (almost 6cts) has been certed; has a great sharp star and is multi-colored. This is a unique gem for either a man/woman's jewelry piece; great for a collection because of the colors one sees!
Upon a request from one of our customers interested in Diaspore, we re-photographed a few of our smaller gems and have posted those photos. She did make a purchase and we are awaiting its arrival/approval by the customer. It is also possible we will design a custom ring for this Diaspore.
Old inventory that hasn't been seen for over 10-30 years has been pulled from the vault and photographed. This includes a small parcel of Natural Sapphire which has been recrystallized 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. Priced 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 - a 17+ct Square Topaz. A related 20+ct Square Topaz from the same piece of rough is also available; this is slightly darker and like the one above, the color is best under lower light levels and also seems to color shift depending on the lights. Both are very large gemstones, well faceted, clean and at a low price when one considers the size and cutting.
Gemstones in Cutting:
We will have some more Opal available possibly in late September. Prices of this material continue to climb and will continue to do so. The time to purchase is now. We might be faceting a few gemstones in crystal clear quartz with a rutile needle for special optical effects. We will have more information at the end of September
NEW PAGE: Maine Tourmaline
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 craftsmanship 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!
