Gemstones - Yellow Beryl (Heliodor)

Beryl_cats-eye_1705pts_yellow_4pcs
We have heard and seen Cats Eye Aquamarine, but here is an example of the same mineral (Beryl) with a body that is semi translucent and with FINE Cats Eyes. We found this material by accident and purchased only the best 'eyes' of the parcel. These really are fantastic, as they have very sharp eyes, look very much like Chrysoberyl Cat's Eyes which are far more costly and this yellow beryl is actually more uncommon and rare when found containing cat's eyes! It has the same look as Cat's Eye Chrysoberyl - the so called Honey and Milk phenomenon. These semi-transparent pieces become half milky and half transparent depending on the orientation of the light source, and they suddenly develop the cat's eye with the proper light! Approximate dimensions: 8x10mm - a very nice size all around. Would make wonderful rings, especially for men, or just as part of a collection of an important new find or for those who collect gemstones that have been Published! (ucsc-10-01p)

To purchase the same sized Cat's Eye Chrysoberyl, one would have to pay about $15,000+ wholesale (based on The Guide 2014 wholesale price list, 3.00-4.99ct, Extra Fine, Lower/Upper averaged).

All four of these gemstones have been studied/published in some way and appear in the noted magazines, publications and trade journals.

To quote GIA regarding these Unique Gems - "...conducted the analysis and observed some very interesting and unusual inclusions in these heliodor samples... they all have very rare well-formed blue octahedral gahnite crystals (ZnAl2O4, spinel group mineral). The gahnite inclusions have never been reported before in beryl and maybe can be used as a diagnostic inclusion of the geographic origin of the stone after some more detailed research in the future."
When the editions of Gems & Gemology are available, we will post the links here.

Limited Availability: If you wish to possess very unique and unusual gemstones, your wishing can be over - these few gems fall into that category! Once these gems appear in trade magazines, the secret will be out...

This fabulous yellow beryl suite originated in the country of Tajikistan. We purchased the rough years ago and from one crystal, our expert cutters created this wonderful suite. We have photographed it in a position that we thought would make a lovely pin - one can also rotate the oval lengthwise for a different look. It is our hope that a customer will purchase this piece and work with a goldsmith to produce an even greater piece! A goldsmith could work magic with this and produce a wonderful display piece too. Hopefully, whatever is done, photos will be sent back to All That Glitters showing us the design. We would love to see it! We cannot stress how important this matched set is....
Total weight of the kites: 9.89ct; weight of the oval: 3.85ct
