Gemstones - Ametrine

This material is the best colored Amethyst and Citrine colored Ametrine coming from the only mine that produces Ametrine - the Anahi Mine on the border of Bolivia and Brasil. This material was purchased on one of our trips to our Brasilian office back in the mid-1980's. These were all hand choosen for color. Most of the material on the market/tv is the lighter color which should be seling for only a few dollars per carat. The darker material is not commonly encountered and we have not purchased any more of this material since that timeframe as we haven't seen this color, quality and price. The color is a medium purple and a medium citrine color. Since every individual computer monitor is setup differently, most photographs, gemstone or others, will appear different on each monitor. It is difficult to get accurate color renditions when photographing gemstones, but we have attempted to show the color as accurately as possible on our monitor.

All That Glitters Gemstones and Crystal appear in a New Trade Article analyzing a Unique Ametrine showing a 'stepped zone' feature, as well as a nicely saturated 50:50 Faceted Ametrine and a crystal from the source - the Anahi Mine. Read the technical study on these pieces!

One says WOW when viewing this Fancy Blended Ametrine!

Click on the above photo for a larger image.
A 45.60ct Concave Cut Blended Ametrine in a uniquely shaped oval, showing the Amethyst and Citrine as separate areas within the gemstone, but also causing some blending which adds interest and beauty. This was photographed with a ring light which allows proper even lighting to see the color patterns/cutting throughout the gem. Our connections to the mine that produces this material, allows us to obtain the unique pieces of rough we require to produce such beautiful treasures. The rough is personally selected for All That Glitters. We do anticipate (or perhaps better said - we 'hope') beautiful gemstones will result from our rough by our cutter, but sometimes the custom design the cutter has chosen and the one-of-a-kind rough we supply him, turns into something far beyond what was originally expected, as is the case of this piece as well as a custom created fancy fan shape (incorporating grooving, faceting and even optical dishes in the design shown below). So unique and beautiful are these, that we have been comtemplating entering them into the ATGA Cutting Edge Competition when that is held in the future. The negatives to entering these gemstones into this contest include waiting for the contest to begin, the high entrance fees ($300, not to mention the cost of shipping and insuring the gems in full) and the fact that if the judges agree about the uniqueness of the cutting/shape/color, etc. the gemstones are not returned to the owner for quite a long time as they go on tour to be admired by others in the trade. We do have a price in mind per carat for these pieces, and we feel due to the size, the uniquenes, the rarity of the starting material as well as other pluses, that our price is a very good buy and far less the retail price we have seen for smaller Ametrines with less interesting cuts and where the color zoning is more of the norm of what one sees in 'everyday' Ametrine. Feel free to email us to inquire about the price. (ajml-16-01f)

special Ametrine - custom faceted
A beautiful 30.82ct Ametrine. Rough came directly from the only mine producing this material and faceted by our special cutter in this wonderful style. The cutter requires about 5 days or so from the time the rough is received until he completes the finished gemstone. That is 5 days of a persons time - also, he is to undergo shoulder surgery due to the pressure required to apply to the gemstone while fashioning. Due the difficulty and time involved in this method/type of cutting, this could be the last of this material to be produced in any gemstone of size. (ajml-16-01d) $1,849
Grooved Ametrine - Typically Never Seen in Rounds!

Click on the above photos for a larger image.
A 30.41ct Round Multi-Colored Ametrine. Exceptional because rounds in this material are seldom seen and separating the colors requires expertise and depending on the rough, still might not be possible. Photos were taken under office fluorescent lights and a fluorescent ring light. The right hand photo might have been photographed with the office lights off and just the light ring - as you can see, the purple has sort of a glow. We have been considering whether this should be entered into a cutting competition. We have it priced behind the scenes, at what one would expect to pay for this cutting, beautiful design/color pattern. If this is a gemstone you must have, contact us for pricing. It will be some time before the cutting competitions are available, and if it is sold prior to then, we can only hope that in the years that follow, we produce another similar one... SOLD!

Another wonderful piece when it comes to an Ametrine - weight is 28.31ct. Rough chosen for uniqueness of colored zoning and the cutting takes advantage of this fact. Great design with sparkle and brilliance as shown. Photos show the same gemstone just rotated 90 degrees to show the play of light/color when viewed at the different angle - and it can be set either way or as one sees fit... (ajml-16-01a) Only $60/ct, $1,698

13.91ct Unique Ametrine
We have never seen another gemstone similar to this one as the zoning that separates the amethyst and citrine colors is not a straight line as is expected. This literally shows two right angles; forming a step. GIA has studied this piece ans has made the following comments and observations: 13.91 carat faceted ametrine showing color zoning resulting from parallel growth, and Brazil Law twinning in polarized light - Interesting!

synthetic ametrine
Synthetic Russian Ametrine!
A unique Russian Synthetic Ametrine is also available. We have seen photographs of slices of this material in magazines such as GIA's Gems and Gemology Magazine, but we have not seen an actual crystal. Very interesting for a cutter or a collector of Russian's advanced lab grown synthetic experiments. It measures approximately 7 inches by 2.75 inches across. Our scales cannot weigh this crystal because it is sooo heavy but we can tell you that it weighs over 1000ct! $1,400 for this wonderful specimen.
