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.
Peach sapphire

SAP208
Origin:
Sri Lanka
Weight:
1.74 ct.
Size:
5.86 x 8.18 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None (unheated). AGL report provided.
Price:
$1,880.00
Comments:
This is one of the most unusual sapphire colors I've had in recent years. It is a very pretty peach (yellowish-orange) in indoor lighting, shifting a bit more to the yellow side in natural light. I've seen very few with this particular hue before.
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
Gem ID:
SAP225
Origin:
Madagascar
Weight:
1.63 ct.
Size:
6.69 x 6.69 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None
Price:
$1,075.00
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.
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.
chrome tourmaline
Gem ID:
TML334
Origin:
Tanzania
Weight:
1.61 ct.
Size:
7.50 x 7.50 mm
Clarity:
Treatments:
None
Price:
$351.00
Comments:
Chrome tourmalines with a true, rich green are getting harder and harder to find. This is a piece of "old stock" material that I've had in the vault for many years. Although it is on the dark side, the color is stunning, and it produces the distinctive red flash that fine chrome tourmalines are known for.
