All That Glitters Gemstones Appearing in Books/Magazines - Many are Currently Available for Purchase!

Prices Subject to Change at Any Time....

Many of our gemstones have appeared in publications such as Gems and Gemology Magazine by GIA, Jewelers Circular Keystone (JCK), Cedar Wings Magazine (published as an in-flight magazine in the Middle East where all photos of gemstones/rough in the article came from the All That Glitters' Inventory!), and many more. Our gemstones have appeared in two editions of "Gemstones - Understanding, Identifying and Buying". There are collectors out there who desire to collect gemstones that have been published and seen throughout the world. Many people enjoy sharing their personal gemstone treasures with others, whether it is an unset gemstone in a collection or set into a piece of fine jewelry. It is a thrill for most to open a book or magazine and show a photograph of the very gemstone that they are showing to someone! Though All That Glitters gemstones are very often unique and rare due to size, color, clarity, polish and cutting, a few are even more special because they can be found in international publications. They are very much like a work of fine art which is known to belong to a museum - in this case, they may not only be found in some museums, but perhaps in your home or the home perhaps next door to you!

Many of the prices below are more in line with a retail price vs. a gemstone that has been published. A retail estimate is difficult to determine on many of All That Glitters gemstones, because they are typically very unique due to size, cutting, clarity, color, etc. As one famous jewelery stated before - All That Glitters gemstones are "so exclusive and one of a kind, that our customers would not be able to "price shop". Visiting another business and finding a similar gemstone is impossible." Pricing has been based on the normal wholesale with an added percentage due to the publication of the photo. Overall, the prices are very far below where one would expect them to be, and may change at any time.

It is not the norm for a business to have so many gemstones published in trade magazines and books, but this is indeed the business of All That Glitters - dealing in Fine Faceted Unique Colored Gemstones!

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)

This gemstone was studied by GIA appears in the Fall Edition of GIA's Gems & Gemology Magazine (2016)! View the GIA article as well as see photos:
Large Aqueous Primary Fluid Inclusion in Amethyst

Beryl_cats-eye_1705pts_yellow_4pcs
We have heard and seen Cats Eye Aquamarine, but here is an example of the same mineral (Beryl) with a body that is semi translucent and with FINE Cats Eyes. We found this material by accident and purchased only the best 'eyes' of the parcel. These really are fantastic, as they have very sharp eyes, look very much like Chrysoberyl Cat's Eyes which are far more costly and this yellow beryl is actually more uncommon and rare when found containing cat's eyes! It has the same look as Cat's Eye Chrysoberyl - the so called Honey and Milk phenomenon. These semi-transparent pieces become half milky and half transparent depending on the orientation of the light source, and they suddenly develop the cat's eye with the proper light! Approximate dimensions: 8x10mm - a very nice size all around. Would make wonderful rings, especially for men, or just as part of a collection of an important new find or for those who collect gemstones that have been Published! (ucsc-10-01p) Only $500/ct.

To purchase the same sized Cat's Eye Chrysoberyl, one would have to pay about $15,000+ wholesale (based on The Guide 2014 wholesale price list, 3.00-4.99ct, Extra Fine, Lower/Upper averaged).

All four of these gemstones have been studied/published, appearing in a photo and described within an article devoted to these unique pieces - Gems & Gemology(GIA) Fall 2015 Edition, and possibly within another GIA article. See below for link to the article.

Weights are as follows - left to right in the photo above:

To quote GIA regarding these Unique Gems - "...conducted the analysis and observed some very interesting and unusual inclusions in these heliodor samples... they all have very rare well-formed blue octahedral gahnite crystals (ZnAl2O4, spinel group mineral). The gahnite inclusions have never been reported before in beryl and maybe can be used as a diagnostic inclusion of the geographic origin of the stone after some more detailed research in the future."

Limited Availability: If you wish to possess very unique and unusual gemstones, your wishing can be over - these few gems fall into that category! Once these gems appear in trade magazines, the secret will be out...


GIA's Gems & Gemology (Fall 2015): Blue Gahnite Inclusions in Cat's-Eye Heliodor
What exactly are the inclusions and what causes the Rainbow???
scapolite with inclusions
scapolite with inclusions
scapolite with inclusions
scapolite with inclusions
This is clear Scapolite with some sort of inclusion that runs parallel as can be seen in the photos. Some have thought it Rutile, but it is not a crystal structure. One dealer abroad said the inclusions consist of the following: silicate minerals composed of aluminium, calcium, and sodium silicate with chlorine, carbonate and sulfate. The first two photos were taken by All That Glitters under a fiber optic light, and the bottom two photos were originally sent to us via the seller of this unique piece. There seems to be some other pieces of this material, but this is the largest, cleanest, most interesting piece seen thus far. One needs the right light and must look closely to see the colors; closeup photography helps. Because the inclusions are parallel and numerous, one expects to see a cat's eye effect and this is indeed the case in the above photo. (olprl-14-01) $1,675

We contacted GIA last year(2104), as we thought this unique and GIA might want to share this item with the trade. It was indeed worthy of study as well as publication in the Spring Edition of Gems & Gemology. It is currently available for sale. There is only one of these that has been published and has appeared in GIA's prestigious Gems & Gemology Magazine!

color changing russian YAG
354ct Boule of Color Change YAG from Russia - about 50 years old and most likely experimental. This changes from a Pink to Lilac to Clear. Unusual and very much appreciated by those few that saw it in Tucson, including those from Gemewizard who were shown a similar boule that All That Glitters had at the time. This material is no longer on the market due to age, etc. You can read and learn more about this material.
This is the last boule that we have n our possession and the largest gemstone (faceted from a similar piece) has been photographed and described in another article published by the Gemological Associate of Great Britain in their Gems & Jewellery Magazine, Tucson 2014 (Shows and Recent Events), page 7, "Andrew Fellows FGA DGA discusses the new and interesting featured at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show 2014". See the section which refers to this unique Color Change YAG:
color changing russian YAG
Rare Color Changing YAG (Yttrium Aluminum Garnet) grown in Russia sometime in the past, 40-50 years ago. The Russians were known to be experimenting and on the cutting edge with crystal growth for all kinds of purposes, many pertaining to military use. With their multitudes of experimentation, sometimes only one or a few crystals were grown. What the purpose of this unusual color changing crystal might have been remains a mystery, but for those who seek a beautiful gemstone, these few pieces represent a rare find as noted in the article link below. Depending on the light source and the wavelengths available, one can see green or orange body colors in these faceted gems!

But no matter how many pieces he cuts, each lucky owner will know that he or she is in possession of a remarkable item."

The Russians were known to be experimenting and on the cutting edge with crystal growth for all kinds of purposes, many pertaining to military use. With their multitudes of experimentation, sometimes only one or a few crystals were grown. What the purpose of this unusual color changing crystal might have been remains a mystery, but for those who seek a beautiful gemstone, these few pieces represent a rare find as noted in the article link below.

This is the largest gemstone faceted from the Pink to Clear Color Changing YAG. It measures 25mm in diameter and weighs 98.78cts.

It is also believed to be the largest gemstone that All That Glitters has ever faceted from rough we have purchased. The color change goes from a very lively medium pink to lilac to clear depending on the available light source/wavelengths. (Since we pay per carat to facet our rough, this almost 100ct gem cost $$$$ and at only $17.50/ct for a Published Gemstone, this is a steal and a give-a-way; it doesn't typcially matter whether one is faceting a fine Amethyst, Tourmaline or a Rare Synthetic - the price for cutting is based on the difficulty and issues encountered, the time required to facet and the weight of the final gemstone. Faceting a large facet on such a gemstone as this, takes a very long time versus faceting a similar facet of the same design on a much smaller gemstone.) (exomin-13b-01a) $1,729
Now a Published Gemstone - noted in two different publications!

This large round has also been photographed and described in another article published by the Gemological Association of Great Britain in their Gems & Jewellery Magazine, March 2014:
Tucson 2014 - Shows and Recent Events
"Andrew Fellows FGA DGA discusses the new and interesting featured at the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show 2014".
Note that the article mentions that several gemstones have been cut from the rough, with the largest in excess of 100cts - that statement is incorrect, the largest faceted is this 98+ct Round Brilliant discussed here.

This is an exceptional piece for a collection or even for discussion. When shown in Tucson, it had GIA, Gem-A, and GemeWizard talking - obviously so much that it was published so it could be shared with the world. Due to the rarity and publication, one could ask whatever they wish for this beauty, but we felt the current price is very fair and it will be missed when sold....A copy of the magazine in which this fascinating gem appears, will be included with the purchase!...
fine sphene
Three fine Sphenes (Pakistan) with lots of dispersion, again, chosen out of a large parcel for the best brilliance and dispersion!

Canadian Ammolite pieces with a coating on the surface to protect the Ammolite layer, enhance the natural color and provide durability. Colors are actually as bright as shown. We have other pieces that are fine pieces also, but they are only polished, but may not be as bright or flashy. The coating (standard on pieces like this), shows off the color to it's best advantage as the colors display as if the piece has been wet to show the detail/color.
ammolite
15.80cts (lgll-11a-01p) - $545 VERY Rare to see Blue! "...looks fantastic. Wondering if you would mind if I used the picture you took on my International Gem Society website as one example of Ammolite? I haven't seen one with the blue color play...."

ethiopian opal
8.89ct Oval Ethiopian Opal with MASSIVE Play of Color, in a Pin Fire pattern. (sungem-12-01a) $4,890 A really good price on this as we have seen a similar piece in a store in CA and they paid $450/ct YEARS ago....plus theirs wasn't studied and published in an online article! Published Gemstone:

An Unheard of Rarity - 2.71ct Bicolor Andradite-Demantoid Garnet
demantoid bicolor, andradite bicolor demantoid bicolor, andradite bicolor
demantoid bicolor, andradite bicolor
This is certainly a one of a kind piece and has been certed as a Demantoid - how often does one see a bicolor in Demantoid Garnet? A few small inclusions as one can see, but doesn't affect the rarity and uniqueness of this particular gem! The GIA Cert has a decent photo of this gem in the cert below. This One-Of-A-Kind piece was discussed at length in the GIA GemLab among the 3 who work there. They all agreed that it was an Andradite, but the variety was not listed as Demantoid because Demantoid is green; the other half is a reddish and that would not be called Demantoid. In a telephone conversation between the Manager of the GemLab Identification Services and the owner of All That Glitters, (Mr. Brown), Mr. Brown was told that they thought it very unique and something that they really hadn't seen before. The manager also stated that they do not print "rare", "one of a kind" , "unique", etc. on certs, even though that might be the case. He was nice enough to indicate that he would be more than welcome to discuss this 'unique' piece with a potential customer. Contact us for more details! (btgem-11-03)

This beauty was faceted by our Master Facetor (Stephen Kotlowski). It is a piece of yellow beryl purchased about 10 years ago from Tajikistan. The faceting is Competition Cutting as is all work from this cutter. Every facet junction meets perfectly and the life/sparkle is incredible. This could be entered in a cutting competition such as the AGTA Cutting Edge Competition. (blumnt-98-01a) $8,027

published oregon sunstone
The Oregon Sunstone Rough shown above produced the faceted one of the gemstones you see below. One can get a good idea of some of the waste of the original rough, as one can see the trim marks where a diamond saw blade will remove cracks, inclusions and areas that are not desired in the finished faceted gemstone. The typical yield that we use when estimating a finished gemstone is 20% - meaning that 80% of the rough that is paid for, is literally trimmed and ground away. The right hand side piece of rough in the above photo produced the gemstone below.

4.28ct Natural Oregon Sunstone, mined in 2009 and faceted in the U.S. by our Master Cutter (Stephen Kotlowski)! Super piece with great orange. More vivid orange under incandescent lights. As gem is tipped back and forth along the long axis, the sides glitter up and down like neon lights in Vegas. Believe there are very small amounts of schiller if one looks carefully with a loupe or under magnification. 11.82x9.60x6.72mm (dd-09b-01)
SOLD !
Note - Production this year, 2009, has been quite low due to mechanized mining the mine is attempting to run. Problems continue to plague the complicated mechanisms which must all act as one unit. We were only one of two that were allowed to view this rough and make a selection. The owner of All That Glitters personally chose these two pieces of rough from a very limited selection.

Here's an unusual and incredible gemstone. Not only does this Tourmaline have a Cat's Eye, but it is a bicolor. We have had this gem for a number of years yet never photographed it; our customers would have found it in our Inventory Listings only. Unique in color, size and a very sharp eye, we haven't seen a similar piece. The Guide (wholesale listing) only describes/notes Bicolor Tourmaline in pink/green and shows a fine piece selling at about $700/ct wholesale. This color combination is unique and anytime a gemstone is published, the value of that one particular piece is expected to be multitudes higher than a similar piece - assuming one can find something similar. Considering the fact that this appears in a book, we feel we have a great price on this piece. (vst-04c-08) $8,380

28.62ct Green Spodumene
Green Spodumene (sometimes called Hiddenite) is not often seen in this depth of color. The color of this piece is actually a deep seafoam green. Color reproduction was difficult in this case.
This is from Madagascar and has been irradiated, just like Quartz, Topaz, Kunzite (some), etc. Like it's sister stone Kunzite (Pink Spodumene), the color can fade whether it is the original color or not. Gem varieties of Spodumene are considered to be evening wear and high temperatures and bright lights should be avoided. Though many are not disclosing this fact, we have been told that this material can fade. We do not have any other information on this at the present time. It is our hope that the color is mostly stabile as long as it is not heated or exposed to bright light.s. (igec-06-01) SOLD !
