Looking for more gemstones rarer than diamond? Check out our pages dedicated to Padparadscha Sapphire, Demantoid Garnet, Oregon Sunstone and Moldavite!
(Based on Selections found in the Monthly Gem News Article above.)

Padparadscha Sapphire:  Padparadscha Sapphire (And MANY of our Pads are Certed by GIA - A Wonderful Plus!)

Demantoid Garnet:  Demantoid Garnet

Oregon Sunstone:  Oregon Sunstone (Our Oregon Sunstone has been faceted in the U.S. from our rough by specialty cutters!)

Moldavite:  Minerals Page 5 (We have no faceted Moldavite as it tends to be very dark, but we do have an Incredibly Unique Natural Specimen that is called a Hedgehog Moldavite. This item is pictured on the link/page. We do have another Unique Specimen which shows some Rare Characteristics - this is NOT for cutting since it is a very special one of a kind example of this material. It is a piece of Natural Moldavite created after the meteorite impact, with the melted sand being tossed into the atmosphere and solidifying prior to returning to the Earth - and shows a unique bubble coming out of the side. This is not photographed and resides in the All That Glitters Curio-Cabinet in the Office. For those that are interested, this will run about $550 and we can generate some images for you. We have yet to see a similar piece like this during years of gem and mineral show attendance. Should we photograph this piece, it will be placed onto one of our pages devoted to Minerals and therefore offered to the public/dealers after being displayed in the cabinet for years.)

The International Gem Society has perhaps one hundred or more photos of gemstones from the All That Glitters Collection, representing a particular species, specialty/unique cutting, unique colors or just fine examples of a gemstone. More are always being added.
