3.48 x 4.87 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None (AGL Certified)
Price:
$2,650.00
Comments:
Natural alexandrite rough is extremely hard to find these days, and I feel very lucky to have been able to obtain this stunning piece! In addition to being very clean, this little guy has a very dramatic color change, going from bright green with slight blue secondary in natural light to pinkish-purple in incandescent light. An AGL report accompanies this stunning piece.

Garnet

Mint Garnet
Gem ID:
GAR271
Origin:
Tanzania
Weight:
3.84 ct.
Size:
9.35 x 9.39 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None Known
Price:
$3,450.00
Comments:
Fine tsavorites and mint garnets are getting more and more scarce. This is one of the last large pieces I have from the Tanzanian strike of several years ago. The color is a very lovely light green, and clarity is very good as well. There are some inclusions, concentrated to one side (right-hand side in the face-up shot), but the nature of the inclusions and the brilliance of the cut make them quite difficult to spot.
Green Grossular garnet
Gem ID:
GAR484
Origin:
Tanzania
Weight:
1.70 ct.
Size:
6.04 x 7.56 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None
Price:
$990.00
Comments:
This bright "kiwi" green grossular garnet is a wonderful example of some relatively new production coming out of Tanzania.  This particular oval design is a new one for us, and its complex facet arrangement takes full advantage of the excellent refractive index of garnet.  Translation:  tons of sparkle!

Sapphire

Yellow sapphire
Gem ID:
SAP188
Origin:
Sri Lanka
Weight:
1.78 ct.
Size:
7.37 x 7.37 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
Heat (traditional only). AGL report provided.
Price:
$1,850.00
Comments:
This sapphire is an intense yellow with a touch of orange. AGL has confirmed that this stone has seen traditional heat only (no BE diffusion or other extreme treatments). Overall, clarity of this one is very good, and it faces up clean. There is one discoid feather in the pavilion, which is only visible under very close inspection.
Blue sapphire
Gem ID:
SAP164
Origin:
Mambilla, Nigeria
Weight:
2.15 ct.
Size:
5.82 x 7.79 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None (unheated). AGL report provided.
Price:
$1,230.00
Comments:
Mambilla produces a number of hues of sapphire, and this blue piece exemplifies one of the more popular ones. Face-up clarity is hampered a bit by a feather near the culet that can be seen if inspected closely (visible in the photos). A very nice size and a not-so-common shape, perfect for a ring or pendant.
Blue sapphire
Gem ID:
SAP205
Origin:
Sri Lanka
Weight:
3.08 ct.
Size:
5.93 x 7.71 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None (unheated). AGL report provided.
Price:
$5,180.00
Comments:
I love classic emerald cuts. Rarely do I get to cut them in sapphire, however, due to shape and clarity constraints. So I find this lovely blue to be particularly-pleasing. This one is cut in a deep emerald design to preserve color and enhance tilt performance.
Blue-green sapphire

Madagascar
Weight:

Clarity:
Treatments:

Comments:
This dark blue-green beauty comes from the same parcel of Madagascan sapphires as the purple one featured on the last newsletter. Completely unheated/untreated and having excellent clarity, this one will make some lover of dark-toned stones very happy.

Size:
5.95 x 5.95 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None (unheated)
Price:
$900.00
Comments:
Madagascar has been producing some incredible pink sapphires lately.  This little guy has a really nice pink color that remains bright and appealing in all lights.  As with many of these, there are a few microscopic crystalline inclusions here and there, but they are difficult if not impossible to see face up.
Purple sapphire
Gem ID:
SAP231
Origin:
Umba, Tanzania
Weight:
1.32 ct.
Size:
6.06 x 6.06 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None (unheated)
Price:
$1,275.00
Comments:
This Umba sapphire has an incredibly-intense purple color that will grab attention from across the room.  There are some crystalline inclusions typical of unheated Umba sapphire, but due to the brilliant facet pattern and rich color, they are difficult if not impossible to spot in normal viewing.

I love the beautiful sapphires coming out of Madagascar right now. Here is a stunning baby pink (touch lilac) oval, cut in a brilliant design to show off both the sparkle and delicate color of this piece.

Here is another beautiful sapphire from Madagascar, this time in beautiful, bright yellow. In some lights, this piece even has a touch of green to the yellow, making for a striking and unusual color for sapphire. Cut in a classic round brilliant.

Here is another beauty from the parcel of Umba sapphires purchased at Tucson 2017. It exhibits a grape purple in indoor lighting and shifts to a bluish-purple in natural light. There are some crystalline inclusions present, but they do not hinder performance significantly.

This is a piece of rough I’ve been holding onto for a while, due to the unusual color. From the now-famous Mambilla sapphire deposit in Nigeria, this light green beauty is completely flawless and is faceted in a classic rectangular radiant design.
Pink/Lilac sapphire
Gem ID:
SAP333
Origin:
Ilakaka, Madagascar
Weight:
1.34 ct.
Size:
6.12 x 6.12 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None (unheated)
Price:
$1,250.00
Comments:
This sapphire from Madagascar has a stunning color and is cut in one of our most popular designs. The bright pink to lilac-pink color displayed by this stone is just spectacular, and I’ve yet to find a lighting situation in which it doesn’t look great. Other than some very light “dust” (microcrystalline inclusions), it is extremely-clean and sparkles like mad.

Spinel

Lavender spinel
Gem ID:
SPL142
Origin:
Luc Yen, Vietnam
Weight:
5.14 ct.
Size:
9.63 x 9.63 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None
Price:
$2,596.00
Comments:
Vietnam produces some of the finest lavender spinels in the world. At over 5 carats, this one is considered extremely-large. Unfortunately, there are several inclusions in this one. If clean, it would easily sell for more than double this price. That said, the impressive size and lovely color of this one make it very special. The orangy tone seen is from what is likely iron oxide that worked its way into the stone over many millenia underground.
Pinkish-Purple spinel
Gem ID:
SPL148
Origin:
Tanzania
Weight:
2.09 ct.
Size:
6.71 x 6.71 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None
Price:
$885.00
Comments:
Here is a really nice Tanzanian spinel, cut in a chunky antique cushion.  Due to spinel's excellent durability, this one could be used in just about any jewelry application and is in the "sweet spot" size wise. 

Zircon

Orangey-red zircon
Gem ID:

Origin:
Tanzania
Weight:
6.96 ct.
Size:
8.29 x 11.44 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:

Price:

Comments:
Tanzania produces some of the most beautiful red and yellow zircons in the world. Here is a very nice example in orangey-red. This one was cut in a high-crown, chunky classic design that is sure to please lovers of antique cuts. Color is most accurate in the hand shot. The color of this one can be lightened further at no charge if the owner so desires.
