Two cabs of Tanzanian Sunstone weighing about 0.65cts total, showing some phenomenon $65
16.90cts of Tanzanian Sunstone (not exactly matched and can be purchased separately) with a wonderful color and a faint/medium 4-ray stay present. This material was written up in an article by Morgan Beard and is very collectable. You can see the internal fibers that make up the stars. The body color is gold... (7.69ct and 9.21ct) (mj3inc-04-04p) $60/ct
(A great price for this fine quality material!)
sunstone sunstone
3 cabs of Tanzanian Sunstone weighing 14.65cts. The middle stone shows a weak 4 ray star, and the left hand/right hand cab show a fairly distinct cats-eye! These gemstones can be purchased separately. Photo on the left was taken with a pen light to act as the lighting source to show off the phenomenon. (3.66ct, 3.72ct, 7.27ct) (mj3inc-04-04p) $60/ct (A great price for this fine quality material!)
Same 3 cabs under office flourescent lights with no over head pin point light source; therefore, no cats-eye or star.
green feldspar
2.89ct Rare Green Andesine Feldspar, uncommon in this color. The red, orange or orangy red that has been prevalent in the market has been proven to have been color enhanced. We are not sure about whether green is also being ehanced, as the articles just discuss the red/orange. This is our first Green Feldspar purchase in our 25+ year history. We just hadn't seen a fine one at an attractive price previouslyl. Whether this is enhanced or not, it is a very nice gemstone...

orthoclase
Two Deep Yellow Orthoclases from Madagascar. Unsual in such fine yellow (note that the color is a medium deep yellow, and the orangy highlights were picked up by the camera. The eye does not see this orange).
Small Oval: 8.28cts (hilbos-05-01a) $621
Large Oval: 31.67cts (hilbos-05-01p) SOLD !
diopside rough
1.98ct Diopside 7.88ct Diopside Rough
The origin of this material is Madagascar. One piece was faceted by our cutters to produce the round. The piece of rough above, which is not facet quality, accompanies the faceted stone. This would make a great piece for someone interested in faceted stones and the material that produces them. $199

published kyanite
Kyanite from Nepal - $200 per carat, ave wt = 2.67cts
Kashmir Sapphire Blue Color! An incredible color without the typically issues of inclusions and zoning seen in this material. This particulat deposit produced some gemmy material, as Kyanite is not thought of as a faceted gemstone - so this particular find and these examples above are far from the norm! (vst-04d-04p) The two ovals above have been sold. A Dealer sale to Slovakia. The two smaller pieces are available - and the average weight of the two is less than 2 carats!

Boulder Opal/Idar-Oberstein Custom Piece
Again, two different images of another unique item. This one incorporates boulder opal from Queensland, Australia and custom carved Mahogany Obsidian.The artisians of Idar-Oberstein, Germany have created a custom piece in shape, texture and color to match the boulder opal below. There are both highly polished surfaces on the obsidian, as well as sandblasted areas. A channel next to the opal will allow a designer to inlay brightly colored gemstones or even intarsia to accent the play of colors from the opal.This unique and one of a kind piece is both signed/dated and is priced at $875.

These pieces were designed by David Stanley, one of the first Americans working in a similar fashion to Munsteiner in Germany. These unique pieces were chosen from a few hundred pieces of David's work approximately 20 years ago. They were chosen based on the designs, keeping the customer and goldsmith in mind. Note that the citrine and amethyst pieces are separate pieces, and one can separate them with a bar of gold, diamonds, other gemstones or whatever the customer desires.

orthoclase
Orthoclase (20.95ct Oval/2.48ct Oval)
This material came from Madagascar and has a good depth of color. (hilbos-05-01p) Only $40/ct
We choose a few pieces of this material from perhaps a few thousand pieces that we had recently seen. We thought the colors were absolutely wonderful. A few had incredible picture-like quality; they looked like desert scenes, with mountains, plateaus, blufs and with a greyish blue overcast sky. These again, like all of our material, is the best of the best. We understand that this comes from Wyoming and it really hasn't been actively mined for about 20 years. Have also heard that the deposit is difficult to get to. The original namers of this material had wanted to pay tribute to Hawaii, but mispelled the name - Owyhee. This is where the name came from. We have also heard some other stories, but haven't delved into it; we typically deal with faceted gemstones, but many times beautiful things catch our eyes such as this material.

peridot
3.39ct Peridot
From a fairly new find of Peridot in China, the photo of this gemstone does not due it any justice! It is a good green, a large eye clean Peridot at a great price. (selgem-06b-01) $848

29.39ct Faceted Glass with unusual, currently unknown inclusion!
This faceted item was faceted from a piece of what was said to be Natural Volcanic Glass from Africa. The original owner, who is an American Gemstone Dealer in Africa, has only seen chunks of this material twice in about 30 years. His impression was this was natural. This faceted piece was sent to John Koivula, formerly of GIA and now employed by AGTA. John has written a book of gemstone inclusions and is currently working on another edition. John examined this piece and believes that it is man-made glass. John said in an email - "The inclusion in your glass might be cristobalite? I have seen such inclusions in partially devitrified glass before." The inclusions in the rough are really unique and we are considering faceting more of this material and attempting to place the inclusion under the table in the center of the piece. Examples of this material were sent to a person known for his expertise on glasses. He was not able to identify the inclusion, how it was made, etc. It certainly had him intrigued. We only have this one piece. It is extremely interesting, has a great cut and polish, as one of our local cutters faceted it. This material seems to show dispersion under the right lights also. A must have for those who like the unusual - $599

peridot
5.45ct Pakistani Peridot, U.S. Faceted Wonderful cut and color - the color in the photograph is deeper than in real life, but it is a real nice Peridot color and it certainly sparkles. This is a very large and very clean Peridot. There are a few small inclusions which are not readily visible to the unaided eye. (flg-97-01) $1,635
