Gemstones - Tourmaline

Since 1981, we have been bullish on Tourmaline due to the hardness, color range, size, rarity and low price. Over the past few years, larger and/or finer colors of Tourmaline have started selling for $1000+/ct on both the retail and wholesale markets. Higher priced material prior to this time frame was Paraiba Tourmaline (1989) and more recently, the deposits of the wonderfully colored Mozambique Tourmaline (2006 +/-) which has essentially disappeared from the market as the mine/locality has not been producing as it once had. (A small parcel of very fine Mozambique Tourmaline rough was offered to All That Glitters from the mine owner in 2013 at a value of $1,100,000.)

color change tourmaline
15pieces weighing a total of 6.08cts Photographed under two different light sources - Fluorescent and Incandescent. The fluorescent light was still on, but we covered the gemstones with a piece of white paper and held a flashlight over the paper. Some gems shift better than others, some unique colors and nice greens here too. These gemstones where checked with a Chelsea Filter and they contain Chrome - so one could call this Chrome Tourmaline though not all show the typical chrome green color. (You can see some nice greens here which also indicate the material contains Chromium) This is something not to be missed and the parcel is priced currently to move at only - $912 (tz-00-05p1)

Millenium Cut Tourmaline

The Millenium cut can really pick up the existing light within a room and make a stone look bright under low light levels. There are lots of beautifully colored tourmaline available on the market, but frequently these beautiful colors grow under conditions that typically create inclusions - just like emeralds! To hide some of this inclusions and allow these beautiful colors to be worn as jewelry without the eye perceiving these inclusions, the Millenium Cut was designed. (The gemstones below might have inclusions, but we have choosen these pieces from many hundreds of pieces for their cut, and glowing color - if inclusions are present, they are more likely be be hidden because of this cut.) This Cut, these Colors and the Sparkle are something to see in person!

Original piece of rough!
(A terminated piece too!!)
3.56ct ATG Special Apex Barion Cut
This tourmaline originated in the mountains between Afghanistan and Pakistan - in the Nuristan region. Mining is only possible during a few months of the year and it requires horses and pack animals to trek into these mountains. The atmosphere is thin and we have been told that one can see the heart of these animals beating fast - some die. The mountain people here eat raw meat. Not a very hospitatlbe place - but it produces beautiful gemstones! There are a few inclusions within this gemstone, which is to be expected of this color. They are not prominate, but indicate that the piece is a natural gemstone. There are a number of colors coming off these gem. If one were to rotate the rough stone 90 degrees from the picture above, one would see a beautiful blue green - you can see flashes of this color in the photos of the cut stone above.

This just came out of our cutters. The cut is our ATG Apex Barion with a few modifications. Please note that we can no longer purchase this rough at the price per carat that we are asking here. Also be aware, that U.S. Cutting is costly but can produce a wonderful result. (nrstngm-96a1e) $1,716

2.88ct Cushion - SeaFoam Tourmaline The color in person is literally a seafoam and lighter than shown. Depending on the lights, it is neon to pastel. Another unique gemstone! One of only a few pieces that was purchased as a parcel in the 1980's while in Brazil - have not seen this material since. There a few more pieces of this available from the parcel - check out our Photos Pages of Tourmaline or visit our Inventory List of Single Stones and well as Parcels and search for Tourmaline with a color of SeaFoam. To specifically find this parcel, search for LotNum/Stocknum of mvk-89-04. Note that material of a similar color (slightly more neon) was also purchased in the rough from the Nuristan area. Check our Inventory Lists for this material too! (mvk-89-04a) $2,300

B - 13.57ct Square Cushion Plum Colored Tourmaline, Nigeria (precgem-99-1p) A RARE color, a Purple Plum! And the size is INCREDIBLE... (Large rough which would produce any nicely colored Tourmaline is incredibly expensive and rare now. In order to produce a gemstone like this, the rough would be about 68cts. Most of the Nigeria Pink Tourmaline was heated too, which changes the color. It would be rare to find something of this size and color anywhere. Though high in price, for what this is, it is very much underpriced in todays market where gemstones are conintually increasing in price and rough is drying up)
