    UNTREATED, totally natural, Sapphire from Columbia, cut in one of original OMNI Oval designs. This gem has fascinating character. It's eye clean, but under high magnification, it shows a sprinkling of included crystals. I spent hours with this gem under a microscope!

  • 1001-03I

    $576.00

    Dark Pink Sapphire from the mountains of Columbia - a mine no longer producing due to guerrilla activity. This stone is almost a full carat, and though it shows chevrons at some angles, it is still quite pretty - and a bargain. It is one of only two pinks that I acquired from this mine…

  • 1001-03H

    $629.00

    From the mine of our friends Stephen and Maureen - a teal-colored fancy reflector checker-top gem. This stone flashes teal from every direction, and the rounded crown would make it ideal for a ring for a man or a woman.

  • 1001-03G

    $785.00

    This natural, untreated Australian Sapphire is cut in a fancy apex crown design. It is cut across the optic axis so it flashes both midnight blue and dark green in an almost cat-eye-like pattern.

  • 1001-03C

    $299.00

    This bargain stone is the first cut of my Re-Check design - a reflector pavilion with a checker cushion crown.

    $1,599.00

    Perfect natural hot-pink Tunduru Spinel in a fancy apex design - Really hot and ready for your standard-size setting. This stone is next-to-top color! This gem was finished with my Voodoo Polish.

  • 1001-02B

  • 1001-02A

    $199.00

    Juicy orange Spessartite "Mandarin" garnet from Afghanistan. This piece is pretty heavily included, as is typical of this origin. The color is so intense that you hardly notice, though.
