Gemstones - Spessartite Garnet

"Is it any wonder that we were quoted prices just over the $1,000 per carat mark at Tucson for luscious large spessartite? Months later, prices quoted to us for eye-clean, top-color 3 to 5 carat stones ranged from $400 to $800 per carat. If you didn't mind some gas bubbles or other small eye-visible inclusions, prices were generally half those for eye-clean stones."

The Orange Spessartites described in the article above wholesales for approximately $400-800/ct in 3+ct sizes, which is the smallest that All That Glitters typically purchases. We offer to the pubic the fine gemstones shown below, which are all BELOW what you would even expect to pay if you were in the trade! We buy direct from the sources selling the rough or faceting the rough. We typically do not purchase rough ourselves because the rough can be difficult to determine the clarity; best to buy an already faceted gemstone so one knows what one gets in clarity, as well as the final color, as many garnets and other gemstones may look very different in the rough vs. the faceted gemstone...

Price lists for most high end fine colored gemstones can be thrown away as they are very outdated, as prices have increased tremendously. Who would thought a few years ago that nice blue Tourmaline of decent size would be selling at $1000/ct.....Wholesale!
