Measuring 71.5 x 28 x 25.3mm and weighing 468.08 carat, this amazing Madagascar #aquamarine specimen is almost too nice to cut. Very clean and well formed crystals like this can be cut with a high yield approaching or even exceeding 40% and this stone will probably cut an octagon in the 180 carat range.

The blue green color is on the dark side for aquamarine and the greenish components are strong indicators that the stone has not been heated. Heating will not darken the tone but will remove the greenish hues leaving the stone more blue. Inevitably this stone will probably fetch a higher price as a cut stone so it will be cut if it is not sold to a collector.

The festive season is upon us, and while this year was exciting for all the well known classics like sapphires, rubies, and alexandrites, we also saw a substantial year end resurgence of demand for chrome #tourmaline: https://goo.gl/tjmyft

#Tsavorite is the name usually associated with the darker green garnets, but there is no universally accepted standard that designates which shade of green qualifies a green garnet as a Tsavorite. And it is interesting to note that since the darker material is from Kenya and the lighter colors are from Tanzania, the Kenyans insist that only the darker stones should be called Tsavorites, like this eye clean 5.41-carat Tsavorite pear.

#Sphene is a beautiful and highly dispersive green or golden yellow gemstone found chiefly in northern Madagascar. This large crystal is from the deposit just east of Andrafinkona and south of Milanoa. We bought it for the large size and remarkable crystallization. Well defined crystals in this size range are very uncommon. There’s some gem quality in it, but mostly small stones so this one is probably left better as is and saved for a collection or a museum.

The colors of Maw Sit Sit vary from light green to black, monochrome, mottled or spotted and frequently with black or white spots and veinlets of black. It can also exhibit spots and blotches of the same colors or combinations of colored veins. With a hardness that varies but
often approaches 7, Maw Sit Sit is very tough and
durable which makes it a great stone for creative
and cost-conscious jewelry designers.

🇺🇸Stunning multiphase inclusions in a pink spinel crystal from Burma (0.38 ct), probably from Man Sin. Note the extreme complexity of the main inclusion with the presence of a yellow liquid (probably a sulfur-rich one), a big bubble (SO2?) along with some unknown black, white and colorless crystals.
Very difficult to capture but unlimited joy to observe under a microscope.

🇫🇷Rares inclusions à plusieurs phases dans un cristal de spinelle rose de Birmanie (0,38 ct), probablement de Man Sin. Notez l'extrême complexité de l'inclusion principale avec la présence d'un liquide jaune (probablement riche en soufre), d'une grosse bulle (SO2?) et de cristaux noirs, blancs et incolores non identifiés.
Inclusion très difficile à photographier mais qui procure un immense plaisir lorsqu’elle est observée sous un microscope.

Paraiba tourmalines are among the most sought after colored stones in the world and these stones are from the Mavuco area of Mozambique. The name Paraiba was originally designated for the neon blue green copper bearing tourmalines from the Paraiba state in Brazil, but nowadays most dealers also consider the Mozambique stones of similar color to be Paraiba tourmalines.

#Beryl is the mineral and family name for a well known group of gemstones that crystallize in the hexagonal system. #Emerald and #Aquamarine are the most important members, but other varietal names, like #Morganite, have evolved to differentiate the colors in which the mineral can occur.
