Pink Pastel-Pyrope
A new kind of trillion faceted in a Pastel-Pyrope from Ampanihy in Madagascar. These Pink Garnets are usually small, have a light colour combined with a high saturation and so can show all its sparkling power. I purchased a little parcel from a wellknown dealer at the Munich Show last weekend (oct, 25-28th) and this is the first I have faceted from the new lot. Good clarity with a few Rutile-needles and a hovering Pyrite crystal-cluster at half past seven.
1.36 cts., 6.4 x 5.1 mm

Pink Ampanihy Garnet, 1.36 cts.  

7 Rutil-Quartzes
The  2018 theme for my collectors showcase are
"The Pleiades" a series of seven Rutil Quartzes made from a big sphere with frosted and glossy polished facets.
These gems looks a bit extra-terrestrial and share the same pavilion with different crowns. Due to the spherical frosted crown most crown facets are rounds or pitch circles. The third time I did this time consuming series.
Big pieces with weights from 24 to 42 cts.

Pink Ampanihy Garnet, 0.66 cts.  

Dinnehotso Chrome-Pyrope
This is a very big example of Arizona´s Chrome-Pyropes. Usually these are soo tiny that it doesn´t makes sense to facet them. Here is a bigger one closed to one carat. The colour is a very saturated and pure dark red. Under the binocular it shows its characteristic internal life with oriented rutile needles and some structure-relicts from another mineral that was also turned into Pyrope, very fascinating!
0.91 cts., 5.1 x 4.5 mm

The finest of all my Umbalites in all the last years!
