3.05ct Peridot Oval, VVS.
NICE Peridot; 8mm x 10mm with a 6mm depth, no dead spots in the color,
couldn't be prettier! Ring, pendant, with or without accents, get
this quickly; the larger cuts with excellent clarity are becoming more
scarce all the time. A bargain at only $75.00.
4pc Group Lab Alexandrite, Round Accent Stones.
These were purchased for a client who disappeared in the night, so to
speak, so now they are yours for the taking. Pictures are shot
with fluorescent and incandescent lighting to show the medium range
color change from blue-purple to pink-purple. Total carat weight
for the four of them is 1.3 and total price is $40.00.
20pc Group Deep Red Garnet, 4mm Round Cut, 6.75cttw.
Accents for another stone or the sum total of a lovely cluster ring or
pendant, these are very nice Garnets; much prettier in person than in
the pictures. The picture farthest right best displays the actual
color on my monitor. The package goes for $100.00.
SOLD Confetti Sunstone Cabochon, 3.90cts.
Outstanding example of Confetti Sunstone, or Confetti Quartz if you
prefer. In reality you will see a lot of tiny mica-like silver
flash in this one along with the dominant red and elusive blue and green
flash. Nice size, it measures 10.3mm x 9.9mm x 5.7mm and has been
beautifully polished back and front. Examples this good are rare
and this one is $90.00.
SOLD Package of 5 Round Brilliant Confetti Sunstone, 3.41CTTW.
This will be a lovely cluster ring or perhaps a pendant; what about
pendant and earrings? Choice is yours; these are truly much more
beautiful in person, when you can see the flash that the camera simply
could not capture here. The 5 piece group is $45.00.
Faceted Oval Confetti Sunstone, Confetti Quartz, 3.68cts.
When you receive this stone, you will be so happy with the brilliant
sparkling facets, which as you can see did not photograph at all, no
matter how I adjusted the lighting. This one came to me as Red Dot
Andesine, but since it is impossible to prove whether a stone is
Labradorite or Andesine, I am taking the cautious way out and labeling
it as Confetti instead. In sunlight, there are tiny, tiny blue and
green sparkles present too. It measures 10.85mm x 8.14mm and is
Blue Rainbow on Moonstone, 4.69cts.
This is a truly lovely piece with an excellent blue rainbow. Not
as elongated as most, this Oval Cabochon measures 11.4mm x 9.9mm x 5.7mm
in size and weighs in at 4.69cts. The internal striations are what
I believe gives additional strength to the blue rainbow on this
Moonstone. Enchanting gem it is yours for $35.00.
5pc Lot Blue Rainbow on Moonstone, Over 13cts Total Weight.
All five pieces in this group have nice rainbows; what sets them apart
from most Moonstone is that they also have unusual clarity. Some
of them seem almost to have a star in the way of Star Sapphire or Star
Ruby. They average in size about 8mm x 10mm and have a combined
weight of 13.4cts. The package is yours for $100.00.
Blue Rainbow on Moonstone, 5.8cts.
Rainbow is more subtle on this one as you can see by viewing the
difficulty I had in capturing it with the camera. Nice sizeable
stone with unusual depth, it is very white and has nice translucency.
It measures 12.9mm x 8.9mm and has a depth of 7.2mm and a weight of
5.8cts. It is $35.00.
Black Onyx Faceted Cabochon, 4.12cts.
Measuring 11mm x 8.6mm x 6.2mm in a Diamond Checkerboard pattern on the
dome, the back is left flat and unpolished for ease of mounting.
Nice size for ring or pendant, but of course I always go for the rings!
It's your call; the lint seen in the first picture is free, and the Onyx
is yours for $20.00.
Princess Cut Pink Tourmaline, VS2, Excellent Color.
Good strong pink, not the pale pink that is almost all that is available
anywhere else. These precious little Princess cut Tourmalines
measure 3mm x 3mm and have an average weight of .10ct to .15ct.
Above average clarity at VS2 (Pink Tourmaline is generally only
available in SI or below) will make these lifetime treasures for you.
Buy one or buy a bunch; they are $20.00 each.
SOLD White Jelly Opal Cabochons, .30ct.
Approximately 5mm x 7mm each and weighing approximately .30ct each,
these are very pretty Jelly Opal cabochons. There is no backing
added to them, so the milky white base and the red/pink and green, blue
and yellow fire you see in the photos are the result of the Opal itself,
not the result of a clever reflective backing. They are $5.00
7mm x 5mm Oval Top Green Peridot.
Finally, some VVS Peridot! I couldn't help but mention that, since
almost all of the available Peridot is VS-SI, with heavy emphasis on the
SI. Not so these beauties! At 7mm x 5mm each with an average
individual weight of .85ct, they would be suitable for a single stone
dainty ring, a pair of them for earrings, several for a pendant; the
possibilities are yours to explore. They are $15.00 each.
Aquamarine Oval Cut, VVS!
Lovely 7mm x 5mm, average .65ct each, these have wonderful clean blue
color and the excellent VVS clarity to back that color up.
Suitable for a ring's center stone, for a pendant, for earrings; you
decide! They are $15.00 each.
Aquamarine Marquise Cut, VVS!
Aquamarine of good color and clarity is getting ever more difficult to
acquire; these are wonderful! Unusual Marquise cutting, beautiful
light blue color with very little green and fantastic VVS clarity.
They measure 8mm x 4mm, .50ct each and they are $15.00 each.
Black Onyx Teardrop, High Polish Dual Sided, Drilled.
This isn't a cabochon, it is polished and rounded on both sides; no flat
back. It is drilled near the point, so will be a simple matter to
mount as a pendant; with the right mounting, it can be a ring too and
the drill will be invisible! Measures approximately 23mm x 10mm
and it's yours for $5.00.
Solid White Opal Navette Or Marquise.
Nice medium fire solid White Opal in a unique Navette shape; similar to
a Marquise in a faceted stone. Measures approximately 10mm x 5mm
and yours for only $5.00.
Black Onyx, White Gold & Diamond Cabochons, 8pcs.
Earrings with matching stud & dangle, earring studs with matching ring
and pendant, cluster ring: the list goes on! They measure about
5mm x 7mm each, and each is mounted in the center with a 14kt White Gold
diamond shape, each containing a bright little white Diamond! They
are $15.00 each.
Solid White Opal Cabochon.
This is a small oval with medium fire; useful as an accent or as the
focal stone for a pretty ring! Measures approximately 8mm x 6mm,
yours for only $5.00.
Yellow Green Sphene, Red Spark, VVS.
The VVS clarity rating in Sphene (Titanite) is getting more and more
difficult to acquire and is getting more expensive all the time. I
bought some early in the game, so am still able to sell them at
remarkable prices! Sphene is difficult to photograph because try
as I might, I can never get the camera to show you those amazing red
sparks that the stone is so famous for. As you can see in the
pictures, this one is slightly bi-colored, which is even more desirable
in Sphene. This is a nice size, weighing 2.4cts and measuring 7mm
x 9.1mm x 7mm and it is $95.00.
Golden Cognac Sphene, Multicolor Flash, SI 3.4 Cts.
Here is a slightly larger Sphene, weighing 3.4cts and measuring 10.1mm x
7.4mm x 5.8mm; really quite large for a natural mined Sphene. This
one is the Cognac, or more golden brown color with multicolor flash
visible in natural light; like all Sphene, the flash disappears under
strong fluorescent light. This one has SI clarity rating which is
slightly above average for this stone and with the higher carat weight
to balance the somewhat lower clarity, it is still only $95.00.
Cushion Checkerboard Iolite, 1.15cts.
Not a large stone, but more than makes up for it with its VVS clarity;
almost unheard of in Iolite. From India, this one measures 8.5mm x
6.1mm x 3.73mm for its total weight of 1.15cts. $65.00.
Iolite, Stylized Emerald Cut, 2.05cts.
Hard to photograph accurately, but this is a marvelous VVS clarity
Iolite from India. This unusual cutting makes the color deeper
along the edges than in the center and the color seems to 'roll' back
and forth with the movement of the stone; blue chasing purple and back
again. Measuring 10.14mm x 6.34mm x 4.74mm, it weighs 2.05cts and
is yours for $85.00.
Red/Pink Tourmaline (?) Oval, .60ct.
This is part of a group of stones that I came across recently while
cleaning out drawers in one of my cabinets. The paperwork was no
longer present, and I have no memory of having acquired this stone.
On the Presidium Gemstone Tester, it tests as Tourmaline. The
little Oval measures 4mm x 6mm for a weight of .6ct; not a large stone
but one with more presence than the photos imply. In reality, it
is a rich strong red with a purplish pink cast. VS clarity, it
would make a nice center stone for a cluster ring. $20.00.
4pc Lot Of Pyrope Garnets, 1.50cttw.
From my mystery stone group, this lot tests as Garnet, and the color
says Pyrope. VS clarity and top notch color without zoning or
windowing, these little ovals measure each approximately 3mm x 5mm with
varying depths. The combined weight is 1.50cts, and the package is
yours for $25.00.
SOLD Aquamarine, Santa Maria 7 Ovals 3mm x 5mm.
Much stronger than average color, generally known as Santa Maria, the
clarity listing on these is VS, but I think that is ultra-conservative.
They are actually more like VVS, and are reallly quite extraordinary.
I bought these right, so even with the very good clarity and excellent
color, this package is only $35.00.
Pair of Spessartite Garnet Cabochons, Oval.
Here is a pair of future earrings or a bypass ring in an edible orange
shade of Garnet, the Spessartite. These are the color of high end
Amber, and have the same sort of natural inclusions, but are still
highly translucent and have a striking beauty. They measure about
8.6mm x 7mm each, and have a total weight of 5.55cts. From Nigeria
to you, this pair is only $35.00.
Excellent Blue Kyanite Oval.
A gift to us from Kenya, here is a natural Blue Kyanite, untreated and
still VS2 clarity; as you know, most Kyanite is very cloudy or silky.
This one has the same sort of natural internal formations seen in
natural Blue Sapphire, and the color of this particular Kyanite rivals
any Sapphire! It is a long Oval cut, measuring 10mm x 5mm x 4mm
for a weight of 2.1cts. Such a charming ring could be made from
this very high quality stone. It is $65.00.
