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.

'green' sapphire
2.34ct UNHEATED Greenish Blue Sapphire, a unique color - we have had only one of this color over the past 36 years. Origin is Ceylon (Sri Lanka) where they call this color 'green'. For those who wish a unique gemstone/color, this seldom seen variation would make a great ring, pendant or as part of a collection of various colored Sapphires... (nshgm-16a-01) Priced to move at $6,084.

cobalt blue spinel
1.46ct Certed Oval Cobalt Spinel, blue with a hint of violet. (nshgm-17-01) $2,920
Rare to find Cobalt Spinel and even more rare to have a cert. The cert is based on containing the element cobalt in this case, and not soley based on the color. We verified that the lab did an elemental check vs. basing their definition on color. We have seen small under 1/2 carat Cobalt Spinels selling for about $2,500/ct (and not certed) and one ice blue 2+ct at $5,600/ct (with cert) - though this ice blue Spinel contains cobalt, the color is not attractive and we feel the price is unjustified. We believe a cobalt Spinel should contain cobalt, be certed to verify this fact and be a pleasing blue without being overly light or dark. Our 1.46ct Certified Cobalt Spinel falls into our category of a fine example and at an extremely affordable price... View Cert
Purplish Pink Burmese Spinel Cab with Crystal Inclusions!
pinkish burmese spinel with crystal inclusions
pinkish burmese spinel with crystal inclusions
5.55ct Purplish Pink Burmese Spinel Cab with nicely formed crystal inclusions, some with a black center and called "Belly Button" inclusions. Many other crystals of different shapes and forms present. The crystals are not all that evident unless the light is right and it also depends on ones eyes - but this would make a nice ring with a plus of having a world of natural crystals that have grown inside this very clean cab. Another important fact is that this gemstone came from Burma, which is a very collectible location! Measures approx 10.3x8.9x6.9mm (klmngo-16a-01)
$475 includes shipping/insurance within the U.S.

One says WOW when viewing this Fancy Blended Ametrine!
gorgeous one-of-a-kind oval ametrine
Click on the above photo for a larger image.
A 45.60ct Concave Cut Blended Ametrine in a uniquely shaped oval, showing the Amethyst and Citrine as separate areas within the gemstone, but also causing some blending which adds interest and beauty. This was photographed with a ring light which allows proper even lighting to see the color patterns/cutting throughout the gem. Our connections to the mine that produces this material, allows us to obtain the unique pieces of rough we require to produce such beautiful treasures. The rough is personally selected for All That Glitters. We do anticipate (or perhaps better said - we 'hope') beautiful gemstones will result from our rough by our cutter, but sometimes the custom design the cutter has chosen and the one-of-a-kind rough we supply him, turns into something far beyond what was originally expected, as is the case of this piece as well as a custom created fancy fan shape (incorporating grooving, faceting and even optical dishes in the design shown below). So unique and beautiful are these, that we have been comtemplating entering them into the ATGA Cutting Edge Competition when that is held in the future. The negatives to entering these gemstones into this contest include waiting for the contest to begin, the high entrance fees ($300, not to mention the cost of shipping and insuring the gems in full) and the fact that if the judges agree about the uniqueness of the cutting/shape/color, etc. the gemstones are not returned to the owner for quite a long time as they go on tour to be admired by others in the trade. We do have a price in mind per carat for these pieces, and we feel due to the size, the uniquenes, the rarity of the starting material as well as other pluses, that our price is a very good buy and far less the retail price we have seen for smaller Ametrines with less interesting cuts and where the color zoning is more of the norm of what one sees in 'everyday' Ametrine. Feel free to email us to inquire about the price. Measures approx: 26.6x19.2x164.mm (ajml-16-01f)
We decided to post a photo of this piece on Facebook, and below are the accolades within the first hour or so...we posted in a group that knows colored gemstones, cutting, unique and beautiful gems:

The first photo was taken under office fluorescent lights. The second photo is partially backlit which allows details to clearly be shown as it is transmitted light vs. reflected light.

large concave cut chrome tourmaline
large concave cut chrome tourmaline
A gorgeous glowing green concave cut 4.99ct pear shaped Chrome Tourmaline. Large for Chrome Tourmaline and a great shape for a ring, pendant and more. The first photo was taken using a light ring which provides consistent illumination and the second photo is just under office fluorescent lights. The saturated color of the second photo is more of what the eye sees, being a rich what we would call, chrome green. True Chrome Tourmaline is not that common and larger gemstones in this size are even less common. Based on what we've seen as well as our cutter as far as wholesale pricing of Chrome Tourmalines of this size and smaller, we would expect the price for this size in a retail store to be about $1,500ct - and for a unique gemstone which is concave cut and by an AGTA Cutting Competition multi-award winner, this price would be low and would be expected to be actually much higher. The rough for this piece was very similar to rough we gave to Dalan Hargrave, with which he created a 5.05ct finished finished gemstone in his Starlight Cut. The pear shape pictured here is approximately 13.17x10.15ex6.33mm. (then-16-02b) $4,491
(Both of these recently faceted Chrome Tourmalines are a good value due to size, color, clarity and those credited for their expert cutting skills/talent.)
carved oregon sunstone with copper schiller
7.21ct Custom Carved Oregon Sunstone with HEAVY Copper Schiller. This piece just shines with reflections from the copper schiller in the light. Unique shape will allow designers to create a wonderful piece - there is no other piece on the market currently or in the past, which would be similar. A True One-of-a-Kind! (dd-16-04) $721
We missed the GIA Cert on this Sapphire, so reposting here temporarily.

faceted amethyst(morocco)enhydro close up of enhydro in faceted amethyst from morocco
A real rarity: In walking around Tucson and telling dealers/gemologists about a faceted Amethyst from Morocco with an enhydro, people were not only surprised to hear that an Amethyst with water/gas existed, but even more surprised to hear that it was faceted, as well as from Morocco! Even the owner of All That Glitters hadn't heard of Amethyst coming from Morocco, but it does - and some of the colors are really fine, including this fine piece with a rare enhydro just under the table. Normally one seeks inclusions that are not eye visible, but some gemstones/minerals might be purchased because of their inclusion(s)! This rarity displays a hidden treasure within, as witnessed by the photo or with a low power loupe/magnifying glass - and for those with decent vision, one can readily see what all the talk is about! What one notices when viewing this gem, is that the color is purple with blue overtones (a fine color), and that there seems to be something just below the center of the table. When viewed closely, it is an enhydro inclusion! The bubble actually has a very good traveling distance when tilted. We did have another one of the same size but it was a polished point with an enhydro. That quickly sold for $2,300 in Tucson (2015). Though we feel this is a nicer piece all around, and the fact that it is a published piece in Gems & Gemology, the price of $3,000 seems very reasonable for such a unique and published gemstone! This is a fairly large gem weighing 15.53cts and because it is a trilliant, it looks larger than 15cts. (ggc-15-01)

pad colored spinel; orangy pink spinel
pad colored spinel; orangy pink spinel
2.54ct Padparadscha Colored MAHENGE Spinel from Tanzania. A Great Color - Not Usually Seen in Spinel.
Believe this is the second of this color we have ever had in our 35 year history. Color will vary depending on the lights/wavelengths available. Hard to describe, but under fluorescent lights it is a medium bright orangy pink, perhaps slighly more orange; under incandescent, it tends to be more pink with a slight glow. It is neither fully pink or fully orange. We are displaying two different photos, neither of which really capture the color, however, the color is very attractive. We can see this in a setting with white diamonds and perhaps even with other colored gemstones like blue Sapphire as accents. A photo from GIA was available decades ago that showed a Padparadascha Sapphire in a ring and surrounded by both white Diamonds and blue Sapphire - it was stunning and it is still remembered to this day! (Actually, we found the photo on line and thought we would share it - our Pad Spinel is slightly more saturated in color, another plus for this fine unique Spinel!) Measures approximately 8.7x7.0x5.4mm (crtzn-16-01) $4,445
special Ametrine - custom faceting
A beautiful 30.82ct Ametrine. Rough came directly from the only mine producing this material and faceted by our special cutter in this wonderful style. The cutter requires about 5 days or so from the time the rough is received until he completes the finished gemstone. That is 5 days of a persons time - also, he is to undergo shoulder surgery due to the pressure required to apply to the gemstone while fashioning. Due the difficulty and time involved in this method/type of cutting, this could be the last of this material to be produced in any gemstone of size. (This is the IPO (Initial Public Offering) - offered at this price for a quick sale; prices may be increased to reflect the time involved in this cutting style and the fact that this may be the end of larger gemstones fashioned in this way...)(ajml-16-01d) $1,849

When a fine specimen like this is discovered in a collection, one has to try to purchase it. Took some negotiations and lots of thought on the sellers side... Don't see many of these in such a nice cluster/formation, clear, large, etc. Collected in the 1980s - Quartz, Var. Herkimer Diamond, Ace of Diamond Mines, Middleville, Herkimer Co., New York. Measures about 2.5" on one side. Nice curve, sort of looks like a question mark. Nice typical Herkimer inclusions. Seven crystals make up this piece - mostly water clear as you can see, with the beautiful contrasting inclusions. The second largest crystal seems to have a hint of color when on a white surface. (tcc-16-01) $1,275
Chrome Tourmaline Freeform Faceted by Dalan Hargrave
chrome tourmaline faceted by Dalan Hargrave
Our Chrome Tourmaline Rough faceted by Multi-Award Winning Dalan Hargrave! Weighs 5.05cts. This design and low profile will make this easy to set as it won't be high in a ring pendant, etc. The shape will allow goldsmiths to create something very unique and incorporate their designing skills. (then-16-02a) $4,419 ($875/ct - considering the cost of Chrome Tourmaline, the unique design as well as the cutter, this shouldn't last long!...
We have multiple photos of this piece; click on the links for the desired photos:

Dalan discusses this particular cutting design and his philosophies:
"StarLight Cut Chrome Tourmaline - cut for L. Allen Brown(All That Glitters). This is a style of cutting I began doing in 1999 because it is my artist creed to never copy the work of others. It's my belief all true artist would never want to since they have so much pride in their own creative expression to even want to come close to the body of work others are doing. Ethics and optics are the first thing each of the people who come here to Shepherds Ranch study before we even start classes on cutting. I have enormous respect for the true innovators in this modern day fantasy cut gemstone movement and I always strive to be original."
Over the years, Dalan Hargrave has garnered over 80 awards for his cutting. His talent has been recognized by numerous awards including the AGTA Cutting Edge Competitions of the past, as well as recently in 2016! All true artists pay special attention to the fine details as a matter of pride in their own work. That crisp detail cannot be matched by mass production lapidaries. To own a genuine Dalan Hargrave creation is to own a piece initially created by a higher power in nature and then fashioned with care, attention and experience to produce a treasured 'gem' for the ages.
group of fancy ethiopian opal
Four pieces believed to be from the same rough, with very different characteristics - all unique and priced to sell. Photo was taken using a flash, which is the norm when photographing Opals for us. It allows the capture of some of the play of color, but the predominant colors might be different due to angle and wavelengths within the light source vs. overhead lights.
From left to right, they are as follows:
14.80cts: A large white bodied Opal with lots of reddish orange, green and some yellow. Not as intensely flashy as the two smaller gems here, but evident. Lots of color and very well priced for such a large Opal. (opal-16-01a) $1,480
5.93cts: An elongated oval with an unusual bluish grey body color. Not the most lively play of color, but orange, green and yellow are evident. (opal-16-01b) $445
3.75cts: Neon green is the most predominant color seen in this Opal, with some orange and yellow. (opal-16-01c) $575
1.50cts: A smaller Opal with a grey blue body color and lots of color play with orange and yellow being more predominate but great flashes of neon green too! (opal-16-01d) $375

Original Rough!
This unique piece was created using facets, sculpting as well as optical dishes.. A super interesting piece for someone who wants something unique - reminiscent of Munsteiner, Dyber and others! This is exactly what one expects from an Oregon Sunstone - one sees a red surrounded by clear, and of course, what many look for - Schiller (copper platelets). You can see all of this in the photos above - a variation of red, clear, and schiller in parallel lines. (osi-06-01) $1,436
An incredible price if one considers the cost to facet/create this, the size, the uniqueness, etc.
nuristani blue green concave cut tourmaline
2.65ct Green Blue Tourmaline, concave faceted. You can see the dichroic property of Tourmaline, showing a nice light blue and a deep green on the different axes. This was shot with a fluorescent ring light and though there is sparkle/brilliance when this gemstone is viewed, the color saturation is deeper/darker than the photo. Should this gemstone not be what the new owner was expecting or likes, we have our unique 7 Day Return Policy (for any reason) as well as our Life Time Guarantee. (nrstngm-97a-4) $1,590

concave cut oregon sunstone
Oregon Sunstone weighing 4.41cts - unique curved shape which could be described as a crescent. Will allow some interesting designs for custom jewelry! Photos show the gemstone in two different positions - think it would be unique to set with the long axis running up/down vs. across as show in the photos....but anything is possible! Photos don't do the gemstone/shape justice. (dd-16-02) $1,103
concave cut oregon sunstone
An absolutely gorgeous color with sparkle and brilliance, this is an Oregon Sunstone weighing 4.88cts and is superb in color, clarity, cutting, size, etc. Typically doesn't get much better. Great for a ring for either a man or woman, or even designed as something else. Color is a nice autumn orange with highlights of red evident. If only all Oregon Sunstones looked this good!... (dd-16-03) $1,952
concave faceted ametrine
concave faceted ametrine
Another WOW when it comes to an Ametrine - weight is 28.31ct. Rough chosen for uniqueness of colored zoning and the cutting takes advantage of this fact. Great design with sparkle and brilliance as shown. Photos show the same gemstone just rotated 90 degrees to show the play of light/color when viewed at the different angle - and it can be set either way or as one sees fit... (ajml-16-01a) Only $60/ct, $1,698

Directly from Sri Lanka, 4 very nicely cut Spinels all from the Nivitigala Mines in Ratnapura. Priced to move - for these colors, sizes, decent cutting, if we were to price them based on what we saw on the Tucson wholesale floors this year, they would be far more in price...
Spinel has been making the gemstone/jewelry trade news lately and is getting a second look by many.

sri lankan color shifting spinel

sri lankan blue spinel
sri lankan blue spinel
Interesting Blue 3.00ct Square Cushion Spinel from Sri Lanka (Ratnapura-Nivitigala mines). This blue is reminiscent of what one sees at times in the Sri Lanka area; the term of "Cobalt" is frequently associated with this color, whether it contains Cobalt or not. It does color shift depending on the available lights, and the color shift is between two variations of blue. One could call this a Midnight Blue or Midnight Navy Blue. Some have also called this a green blue. One variation of the color is shown on the back of a hand and that color seems to be pretty accurate; the larger photo is close, but very difficult to capture the true color seen. Approx 8.0x7.8x5.8 (shlgems-16-01) $1,800
sri lankan purple spinel
sri lankan purple spinel
A very lively 3.52ct Purple Oval Spinel from Sri Lanka (Ratnapura-Nivitigala mines). Could be confused with a Sapphire as we have seen and currently have in inventory, Sapphires with this color. There is a wonderful crystal inclusion in about the center of the gem, below the table and hidden due to the sparkle/brilliance of the gemstone. With 2x glasses, we can't see it. Under very bright lights and when tilted, one can catch a glimpse of it using glasses, and we would assume that those with very good vision might be able to see it. Doesn't affect the beauty or integrity, and is a plus for those interested in inclusions and proves natural origin. Due to the high power of our photography, you can see the crystal in the photo if one looks closely. Approx 9.2x7.8x6.5mm (shlgems-16-02) $2,112

sri lankan pinkish spinel
sri lankan pinkish spinel
Large 4.28ct Cusion Shaped Sri Lankan (Ratnapura-Nivitigala mines) Spinel of a color that is difficult to describe, and it also color shifts (like many natural gemstones) depending on available lights and the wavelengths in those lights. Under fluorescent lights, the color could be described as dusty pink with purple; under incandescent, it appears more reddish with purple highlights. For nice Spinel, this is large and we find the color to be interesting and the future owner will find that they will have a gemstone that looks differently from room to room, lighting condition to lighting condition, with the body color changing, as well as the highlights that display. Approx 10.3x8.0x6.3mm (shlgems-16-03) $2,568

Note: Magnification and bright lighting is required to photograph gemstones.  Some inclusions may be visible under these circumstances. You are viewing photographs as if you were using a loupe - not your unaided eye.  Under normal conditions, these inclusions may not be visible.
