Select Gem Rough

[re-post from 02/10/2018]

Juicy rough that looks like candy makes us hungry!!

Clockwise…alluvial natural peach, pink, yellow and chartreuse zircons, alluvial natural pink, peach and red zircons, alluvial spessartite garnets, and alluvial purple garnets. All these stones are natural and untreated.

Scroll across to see the individual pictures. These stones have been selected from large parcels and are of the very best quality for each group.

Next they will be clipped or sawn where necessary to produce clean, blocky pieces.

After some initial rough preforming to determine final shape (e.g. oval, cushion, round, trillion, etc) they will be fashioned into full preforms ready for faceting.

Some of them will be chosen to make matched pairs, layouts or suites where possible.

Once they are faceted, polished and inspected for quality control they will go through the final grading process before they are ready for sale.

The process from mine to market is elaborate and it takes experience to produce fine quality finished gems.
