New Stones Listed

I have added a number of new stones to the site.

There are two pallasitic peridots which I have heavily discounted and I am selling at a loss. Both very good gems and far better quality than many I have seen.

I have listed two rare moonstones from Zambia being identified as being close to the line between andesine and labradorite feldspars. Excellent silver shiller. These stones are rare over 1 carat. Also there are 10 coloured moonstones from Burma, all facetted and showing a good colour flash across the crown.

Also a number of orangey brown Pargasites from Africa are added as well as a really beautifully cut silver topaz from Spitzkoppe in Namibia. This topaz has a silvery lustre unlike any other topaz and is extremely attractive and bright. The purchaser will not be disappointed.

New gems for the collector -- open here

I have added a number of new species to the site as well as other examples of existing stones.

 For the inclusion lovers - Epidote in quartz, brookite in quartz, lepidocrocite, blue fluorite in quartz and though a common stone, a rulilated quartz which is facetted and is really beautiful. large size as well. Far better than most.

There are some new bastnasites including a colour change stone that was actually featured in the Gems & Gemolgy magazine.

A colour shift prehnite facetted and has a green to yellow change under different lights, quite rare.

Finally a nice golden beryl 31.86ct, no window and a lovely gem.

I will be adding a few more gems in the next week

Many thanks for the best wishes sent by many customers.

Everthing went well at the hospital and I wasn'ta candididate for the latest tome   of Medicine's Greatest Mistakes, a copy of which I saw in my doctors waiting room several months ago.

I look forward to hearing from interested collectors and being able to answer any questions someone might have.

New stones - click here

14 tourmalines and a large scapolite. All have been recently recut so there are no windows, nicks or scratches.

What may appear to be inclusions in some photos are not, some stones were not properly cleaned before photographing. The cutting is very good and the stones bright and attractive

Very competitive prices with carat prices below $25

For I week only - 15% off all clinohumites

I have a number of beautiful clinohumites waiting for photographing so I can put them up on my site. I would like to stir interest in this variety as they are not common, colorful and hard enough to wear in jewellery. The stones viewed on the site are of the best quality and color.

These stones were bought immediately after cutting so there are no nicks or scratches and the cutting is excellent. Many have certificates.


Remember - I will consider offers on any of my stones especially the rarer more expensive varieties
