Gemstones - Newly Photographed

Note that those gemstones below are being offered at their Initial Public Offering (IPO) and typically priced to move quickly. Prices may increase on any particular gemstone depending on market conditions and the fact that many of All That Glitters items are One of a Kind...

All That Glitters is known for searching throughout the world for the Finest Gemstones and Rough of high quality and uniqueness. Lower quality material may be be found online or in stores, but few have the exceptional material that we offer the trade and our online customers. Gemstones will only be added to our inventory if color, size, cutting, clarity and price match our strict criteria!

We have some absolutely very unique, beautiful, rare, one-of-kind and important new pieces available in our inventory - some very large for their gem species. We have based our pricing on what we paid as well as used The Guide (2014 wholesale pricing) to be as close to those prices as possible, if not below, depending on what category one feels the gemstone should fall into with respect to the matrix that appears in The Guide.

Pricing determined by our cost and using The Guide (Nov/Dec 2014 - a wholesale price list). Most gemstones fall well within wholesale pricing as shown in The Guide. Prices subject to change without notice. Note that since 2014, fine gemstones have increased dramatically in price.

blended flat faceted Ametrine pentagon
Flat faceted blended Ametrine pentagon cut by one of our U.S. cutters - weighs 26.31cts. We typically use a light ring when photographing items, but in this case we simply bounced light off of white paper so that this gemstone was mostly illuminated. This shows a nice mix of yellow (citrine), purple (amethyst) and a mix of both of those colors which produce what one might call a rose-gold or bronze color. Priced to moved. (ajml-16b-01e)
An Incredible UNHEATED LARGE RUBY weighing 5.67cts!!
5+ct UNHEATED Purplish Red Ruby - GIA certed
Many gemstones (Sapphire, Ruby, Tourmaline, Aquamarine, Tanzanite and others) are routinely heated. This partciular Ruby is Unheated and well cut with no blemishes on the surface due to voids, scratches, etc. - also unusual in most Ruby/Sapphire unless faceted in the U.S. This is a very fine large Ruby and a very important gemstone, something that has taken us four decades to find in our travels abroad and was thought to be very worthwhile to have in inventory.

Color is always difficult to capture correctly and even attempts to correct color can fail as the camera doesn't capture the color the eye sees. Then there is color rendering on various mobile devices which adds another layer and possiblity of incorrect color display. The color as described by GIA is Purplish Red. Depending on the lights one sees magenta (or purplish) body color but also red - all dependent on the lights available and the wavelengths found in those lights. This is one of those gemstones that one has to be seen in person, as that way the color is correct for one's vision/color perception, one can appreciate the cutting, brilliance, polish, sparkle etc. in real time as the gem is tilted, producing life, sparkle and various colors. A nicely cut, better than eye clean, 5.67ct GIA Certed Ruby, that is Unheated...very uncommon indeed.

Origin is the land/country of Sapphires and Rubies...Ceylon. The most costly Rubies have been from Burma, with a fine red color, unheated and frequently seen as being sleepy due to fine inclusions. The Graff Ruby - an 8.62 carat Mogok Burmese Ruby set in a Diamond Ring, by Graff, sold for $8,600,410 ($997,727 per carat - Sotheby's Geneva, November 2014).

The All That Glitters 5.67ct Purplish Red Ruby, very clean, well cut, unheated gem is not exactly in the same category as the Graff Ruby, but it is in a category of its own as gems like this are just tyically not seen on the market.
(Yes, we have a nice selection of Fine Burmese Rubies also!)

Measures approximately 11.71 x 8.92 x 6.75mm (essentially a 12x9mm) (egaj-15-54) Price Upon Request.

40+ct U.S. Faceted Ametrine from All That Glitters Custom Rough
U.S. faceted blended ametrine U.S. faceted blended ametrine
This 40.24ct custom cut U.S. faceted Ametrine measures approximately 26.2x18.9x14.5mm. The yellow/purple (citrine/amethyst) are uniquely separated in some areas as well as blended in others, creating some unique and beautiful patterns as the gemstone is tilted/worn. The first photo was shot under fluorescent lights using a light ring which allows brilliance and sparkle, and is just slightly off angle. The second photo (courtesy of Troy Richardson) was shot with no light ring and therefore shows more color than sparkle. (ajml-16b-01h) The cutter had the following to say after seeing the results of his work - "A whopper. A beauty. Possibly the best Ametrine I've ever done..." Contact us for pricing.
color shifting U.S. faceted Umbalite garnet
4.18ct US Faceted Square Umbalite Garnet. Three distinct colors depending on the available lights - under fluorescent it appears a burgundy wine and doesn't have much life, but under incandescent or diffused daylight or other lights, it dances. Incandescent shows the color as a vivid ruby red and under other lights such as diffused a light that has more blue wavelength, the color is magenta. Cutter is learning how to facet and there was a natural part of the garnet crystal which was left as it wouldn't affect any side, but it actually fell on one of the corners as this was to be more squarish with fancy pointed corners. A small facet was placed on the corners making this more of a square cushion. We have a decent amount of this rough; we are promoting the cutter, so we are selling this piece and similar pieces recently cut at very low prices! (eagt-18-01d) $418

color shifting U.S. faceted Umbalite garnet
4.30 carat US Faceted Square Umbalite Garnet. Three distinct colors depending on the available lights - under fluorescent it appears a Burgundy wine and doesn't have much life, but under incandescent or diffused daylight or other lights, it dances. Incandescent shows the color as a vivid ruby red and under other lights such as diffused a light that has more blue wavelength, the color is magenta. Polish is 100,000 diamond, and therefore the mirror like finish reflects beautifully and adds to the look of the gemstone in addition to the internal brilliance. The tweezers are reflecting off of the facets due to very fine high quality polish. This gemstone was faceted by the owner of All That Glitters. (eagt-18-01b) $430
Oregon Sunstone in the Custom Elegante Design!
U.S. faceted Oregon sunstone
Faceted by the owner of All That Glitters, this is a custom cut called "Elegante" developed back in about 2004 by the cutter and based on other similar designs, but with a different distinct top and small table. Photo doesn't do the sparkle or color justice. Depending on the lights, it is a lemon yellow to a sort of champange color. There is a splash of pink when looking down the long axis, that also perhaps adds to the color. $500 including shipping/insurance via Priority Box.

Tanzanite-Colored YAG U.S. CUt
8.08ct YAG (Yttrium Aluminum Garnet - Synthetic from Russia). Just off the All That Glitters dop. Looks like Tanzanite. The gem was photographed under fluorescent lights and was a purple but the camera was seeing blue. Taking it to a large window where there is diffused light, the color was blue... Seems like a color change YAG - and very much like Tanzanite, where the color may be more purple or more blue depending on the lights/wavelengths available! Design called a Stepped Keystone - could also be called a Tapered Baquette. Flashes of color when tipped back and forth along either axis. Those who wish a Tanzanite without the cost, and a large one at that, this fits the bill. Would make a nice pendant or ring. Considering the time on the cutting, the cost of $350 including shipping and insurance via USPS Priority Box, makes this very worthwhile. We had to cut a piece of this unique rough to see what the result would be. Very pleasing. Measures approx. 11x8x5mm $350 all in, as noted above.

unique tourmaline slice unique 'watermelon' tourmaline slice
A - 11.22ct Tourmaline Sllice. Unique colors and unique habit due to the fact that a crystal seems to have grown with various colors and then it was incorporated by overgrowth or another crystal. (kimpx-17-01b) $450
B - Another unique Tourmaline Slice. Intially looks like a watermelon slice, but look closer. It seems to initially be a watermelon crystal growing within another crystal or a watermelon crystal with overgrowth as the pocket composition changed. BUT, it also seems to be an inverse watermelon or perhaps it is a slightly different watermelon slice with overgrowth. A watermelon slice within a watermelon slice? Nature can be very confusing at times, creating some very beautiful and unique items. 15.09ct (kimpx-17-01a) $500
color shifting unheated green sapphire
A 6mm Round Green Sapphire weighing 1.12cts. Unheated and Certed. A very difficult color to describe as it seems to color shift depending on the lighting/wavelengths available. Have seen green, sage green, bluish green and an odd color that is simply difficlut to describe! The camera saw different colors than what the eye was seeing under the office lighting conditions - however, it hints at the origin of the green color. Many sapphires are parti or multi-colored. This seems to be a mix of both blue and yellow, so the colors mix producing a green. The multiple colors are caused by the elements that were present during the growth of the crystal/gem - those elements will absorb and transmit differently depending on the wavelengths available. This would also explain why it is a very nice green under certain lights and various other colors and greens under other lighting conditions. Unusual to find nice green Sapphires and Unheated Sapphires are not very common. Round shape is in high demand and this can be set and used in many different applications and settings.

We are trying out new cutting designs and using some of our existing unique rough from Synthetic Alexandrite to 40 year old Color Changing Russian YAG. Below you will find some of these pieces...

synthetic alexandrite faceted - laser rod material
12.67ct Synthetic Alexandrite (U.S. Grown as laser rod material for the cosmetic industry) faceted in the U.S. Color change is purple, to purple/lilac with teal/green highlights to bright reddish pink. Photographed by a large window - diffused daylight. (laser-17-01) $1,267
russian color change YAG
Large faceted Color Change Russian YAG (material is about 50 years old)and has a very unique color change from essentially clear to pink. Some might describe it as silver, grey, pewter or lilac depending on the lights, but many would just indicate clear. The pink is a darker version of 'pink ice', a color that many are familiar with. One larger piece exists and was featured in Gem-A Magazine (trade magazine - UK) where it amazed those UK gemologists who saw the piece in person. An under 5 carat faceted round also is available and one can see both the larger and smaller faceted gem, read the article and view a video of the color change by visiting our Published Gems Page!
(Published Gemstones)
This recently faceted piece is similar in all aspects to the large published piece - color change, clean, large, etc. As noted in the article, it is a unique and fascinating color change. This piece was faceted in a design called Pines of the Janiculum and weighs over 76cts. Measures approximately 22.2x16.8mm (alxb-14-01b) $1,500

U.S. Lab Grown Genuine Syn Alex Laser Rod Material
large fine U.S. faceted synthetic alexandrite
large fine U.S. faceted synthetic alexandrite
large fine U.S. faceted synthetic alexandrite
A very large Synthetic Alexandrite in a fancy custom emerald shape, faceted by the owner of All That Glitters from All That Glitters rough. Gemstones custom faceted from this rough are typically priced at $100ct - a cutter in the mid-west familiar with this material, has faceted it and has sold it, thought that the price for a fine and/or large gem from this rough should be priced at $125/ct. The retail price on another U.S. grown lab Alexandrite is $360/ct; wholesale is $120/ct, but that material is too dark to produce anything larger than about 4cts. The color change between the two different lab grown material is slightly different, as there are two different applications for the final product - jewelry vs. laser rod material for the cosmetic industry. The laser rod material can be faceted into gemstones as well, and as you can see, can produce some stunning results. (We have both types, with our material coming from Russia in one case and the company that produces the laser rod material is within the United States.)
The color of this particular gemstone can be described in the following way:
1.) First photo shows the gemstone by a window in diffused light - body color is purple with teal highlights reflecting off the internal facets. Our camera captured more bright blue, but the color is more of a teal. In different window lighting, we have seen this teal be more green.
2.) Middle photo was under our office fluorescent lights - shows a body color of purple with a glowing blue off the internal facets. These colors remind us of some of the fine bluish Amethyst that is available on the market. Look through the very center, the table facet, and in the back in two sections, one can see a more green color.
3.) Bottom photo is under incandescent light. It literally glows a bright pink with red flashes.
4.) We have viewed this gemstone under indoor flood lights and the body color seems to take on more of an orangy pink or perhaps orangy purple.
Various body colors will be seen depending on wavelengths available in the existing light source. This gemstone and material would make a great pendant and when worn where the light source is changing as one walks from room to room, will change color depending on the wavelengths available in the light sources as noted. For those admiring the piece of jewelry, it will receive comments and stares as people notice the gemstone looks dramatically different than it did previously. The 100,000 diamond polish adds scintillation on the surface as it is a mirror finish; one has the internal life due to the brilliance itself. You may note the interesting facet pattern on the top and bottom of the gem in the first photo (star burst pattern); this is due to the unique facet arrangement on the back. We have other photos that show this much better, but we chose this photo to represent this gem over the many that were taken. Please excuse dust and fingerprints that may be seen in the photos. At only $100/ct vs. the suggested $125/ct, the price is $3,865. Includes Shipping/Insurance! (synalex-17-01)
