14.62ct Barion Shield Amethyst, origin is the Congo. Faceted in the U.S. Purple with hints of blue.
Measures approx 17.0x14.4mm (afgm-19-01f) $975
A Blue Flash Amethyst weighing 8.61ct and measuring approximately 12mm - faceted by the owner
of All That Glitters. Think glowing blue purple velvet, which is the norm for this hand selected rough when we can
find it! Perfect size for a man or woman's ring and no problem for a pendant either. Some small inclusions
that can be see under the right light and angle on the outside edge - in the video and photo, it under the bottom
facets. (afgm-19-01z) SOLD!
15.49ct Fancy Kite Blue Flash Amethyst, U.S. Cut from All That Glitters rough.
Difficult to capture the true color or brilliance. Think of a very rich velvety purple with blue highlights under
fluorescent lights. This material/rough/facet gems has been typical of this material, a darker gemstone with flashes
of red, pink, purple and blue depending on the lights and wavelengths available. You have our Satisfaction Guarantee if
for some reason this is not for you. (afgm-19-01e) $60/ct
A very deep velvety purple Amethyst (13.92ct) with blue overtones/highlights, you will get more flashes of color at times vs.
brilliance due to the saturation. One usually has to look for finely colored Amethyst as the colors can be almost clear, to the
Rose de France to a more commerical quality purple, but this goes to the entirely opposite scheme, being both very rich and dark.
Difficult to photograph as the camera essentially sees a deep glowing blue without any purple; the eye sees the purple but with the
blue flashes/overtones as noted. Some may feel this is overly dark, but for someone who wants something unusual in Amethyst, as well
as a perfect shape for a ring and especially a pendant, this would work nicely. This is one of those few gemstones that due to the fact it is difficult
to photograph (and recently a few of our Ametrines have been difficult to photograph to show it accurately as far as color, etc.), seeing it in person
is really the thing to do. As always, if you make a purchase from All That Glitters and you are not happy in any way, you have our two wonderful return policies.
Ideally, we wish that people would request a purchase/viewing of gemstones in person as that is really the only way one will see the true color,
the mirror-like polish, the internal brilliance of the gemstone as it is moved/tilted, etc. (22.1x15.3x10.6mm) (afgm-19-01c) $67/ct
Not commonly seen, this uniquely shaped (diamond, lozenge or parallogram) 15.97ct Amethyst, can be set in a few different ways,
making a unique piece of jewelry, whether a ring or a pendant. Due to size, most would prefer it as a pendant or pin.
Others might be more inclinded to even add it to their collection due to shape, cutting/polish or the color. Faceted by
one of our cutters from rough obtained in Africa, the color is a deep purple with highlights of blue, pink or red at times.
Large 16.16ct Amethyst, U.S. Faceted, in a interesting kite shape. Color is a deep glowing purple with blue
highlights depending on the wavelengths in the light. A darker gem, but it catches the light and sparkles depending on angle.
3 Included Quartz weighing a total of 45.07cts. Beautiful crystal inclusions, some in clusters, in green, white and tan.

Clear Quartz with what is believed to be a Star Actinolite. This was occasionally seen on the market
about 10 years ago and quickly disappeared as this wasn't a large deposit. Found a parcel and we choose the

Large 485+ct Clear Brasilian Quartz with numerous well-defined Green Epidote Crystals.
This material is available in smaller sizes out there on the market, including in All That Glitters inventory,
but to have such a large water clear piece with transparent green crystals, is very uncommon. (The price per carat for smaller
pieces is far higher than the price per carat of this piece - to be marked at the same price per carat would mean this piece would
have a price tag of just under $3,500 - and that price could be more of the expected price if one were to find a similar one for sale.)
Great for display in a curio cabinet or as a paperweight. (mpnto-17-01) $1,455 (Only $3/ct!) Measures approximately 75x35x26mm (about 3" long!)

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)

landmark on the eastern skyline of Phoenix. Part of the Mazatzal Mountains,
it is located in the Tonto National Forest 40 miles (64 km) east-northeast
of Phoenix, in the 61,074-acre (247.16 km2) Four Peaks Wilderness. On rare
occasions, Four Peaks offers much of the Phoenix metro area a view of snow
covered peaks, and is the highest point in Maricopa County. Four
Peaks contains an amethyst mine that produces top grade

It doesn't get much better for Included Quartz! Look at the spray of
crystals inside this Water Clear Quartz fancy shaped cab. One can spend
hours looking at the internal world in this piece, using a simple hand held
lense/loupe or microscope. Included Quartz with interesting inclusions are
not all that common and prices for fine specimens like this have been
increasing in value. We sold a super piece last year for $1300, and this
one, though slightly different, is just as good! This piece weighs 31.34cts
and one can get an idea of the size with the fingers holding the piece over
white paper. (vst-14b-01c) $1,300
Fine Herkimer Diamond Cluster
Click on the above photo for a larger image
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) $2,700 (We have seen another cluster at a mineral show with fewer crystals, not as clear as these, not as sharp or as well-defined but with a price tag was $3,600!
For the size, the clarity, the shape, the inclusions, etc. this has got to be a very good buy for such a unique piece!)
This is a very complex and busy Included Quartz weighing
14.07cts. There are multi-layers of Pyrite cubes that can be seen in the
left hand photo, and a more detailed photo is available in the right hand
column for viewing should one click on the link. There is another
interesting mineral at about 9 o'clock. We haven't looked closer at this
crystal but it looks as if it could be feldspar or another Pyrite possibly
replaced by another mineral. (vst-14b-01a) $700
We were very fortunate to visit with our associates living in
Madagascar and we selected three wonderful examples of Fluorite Crystals in
Water Clear Quartz! These few hand picked pieces are outstanding
aesthetically - as most of this material looks nothing like this. Since
these are larger gemstones, we were able to obtain very good photographs
showing the Blue Flourite Crystals within the Quartz. Enjoy!

with Pyrite Inclusions (Brasil) - Hand Chosen from a lot for their
aestheticsUnique pieces showing various shapes of Pryite,
variations of gold color and many show what looks like gold foil that
has been crumpled - very unique and unusual as well as fascinating to
look at under a magnifying glass, loupe or microscrope. Nature is
fascinating and one never knows what one will find!
We have seen an article written on this material in Gems and Gemology Magazine (GIA) but hadn't seen this
in person. One of our decades old contacts from the Afghanistan/Pakistan area had
several pieces to show us. We chose the best of the small parcel, which showed a double crystal with
another small crystal evident - a real beauty to behold. These naturally
occuring crystals actually contain an oil-like
substance and as one moves the crystal, one can see the oil moving as well
as bubbles/gas contained within. The oil/petroluem will fluoresce
under ultraviolet lights! This is another Rare Find that was brought to light and soon
disappeared due to Rarity, not to be seen again? For an estimate of size, the
crystals measures about 1.5 inches in length. This is an exceptional and large example of this naturally
occurring oddity. Locality is Wadh (town in the Khuzdar District of Balochistan, Pakistan). We found a video
online that shows the Blue Glow of this oil under UV Light : Video

Natural Brandy Colored Citrine
- Believed to be from an American locality
The medium brandy colored Citrine below (5 pieces) is natural
Citrine. No treatment has been performed to modify the color.
Almost all Citrines are heated amethyst or ehhanced gemstones. This
material has been in the owners family for perhaps longer than 60
years and was faceted out of one piece of rough. The original
gemstone faceted, along with the remaining rough from which these
were faceted, was sent to John Koivula for study. Mr. Koivula is
well known in the gemstone trade, and at that time, was employed by
GIA. His conclusion was that this material was untreated, natural
citrine, much to his surprise as the natural material is rarely
seen in nature. A few of the larger pieces were specifically
faceted to leave a few lines of natural blue zoning. Heating this
material would have removed the zoning. This is another indication
that it is natural and we specifically requested the zoning be left
in when being faceted. This is all the material we have and these
family heirlooms are up for sale. In over 32 years in the business,
the owner of All That Glittters has never held back sales of any
gemstone in its extensive inventory, even though many of the
gemstones sold are rare and seldom seen in the gemstone trade.
16.00ct Pear Shaped Natural Citrine with faceted
top (plno-07-01p) $975 Near the rounded tip, there is a straight
blue zoning line - this is what helped to determine that it was
Natural Citrine and not heated amethyst. When this is seen directly
overhead, it is a sharp line; when off angle (as in the above
picture) it is more diffused. It can be seen by the unaided eye, but
this is something more desirable vs. being a negative.
54.42ct Oval and 4.27ct Oval - rough came from the Famous Cruzeiro Mine. Color is frequently
called Ouro Verde (irradiated like most of the fancy colors once sees on the market); these two are a Very Vidid Lemon with a touch of Green.
Very bright and lively. The smaller measures approx. 12x9mm and the large one is a whopping 29x21mm! We had these cut from the rough - the cost to facet
large gemstones (even Quartz) is quite costly and therefore at the price per carat we are charging, the large piece is really worthwhile...
$20 per carat for either gemstone - if you purchase both, Only $15/ct. (nevst-05-01bz)

Note - It is rare to find amethyt bicolors. The most
commonly know version is Ametrine, but this material, amethyst and clear
quartz is VERY rare. The crystal has to grown this way, has to be free of
inclusions, milkiness, etc. and that in itself is rare. What is even more
rare in these two pieces is that both seem to be TRI-COLORS! Prior to the
past few months, we have never seen any of this material before in over 20
years. We haven seen a few poor, small examples, but nothing of fine
quality like these! We do have two Amethyst Bicolors which are
Amethyst/Clear Quartz and can be found on our Miscellaneous Photos page,
and we do have some very fine deeply colored Ametrine (see our Ametrine
Photos Page), but nothing like these unique Tri-Colors. We recommend
grabbing them while they are available now. If we haven't see something
like this in all of our 20+ years in the business, then this form of quartz
must be special - so special, if we can find out exactly where in Brasil
they came from, we will be flying down there to purchase whatever is
available! Comments from the person who purchased the first two pieces of
Tri-Colored Quartz we encountered: "The tri-colored quartzes were exquisite
and will be treasured parts of my collection. This is rare material, but I
can always expect the unexpected from you... and it being top quality on
