Australian Zircon
Remarkable how heavy the Zircons are compared with other gemstones! From an US-dealer I got a little lot of nearly colourless australian Zircons. There is just a soft champagner hue visible and the double refraction is very decent while viewed from above. One small veils otherwise clean.

Antsirabe Tourmaline
Just a hand ful of unusual coloured Tourmalines have been found in a pegmatite near Antsirabe in Madagascar. Most have earthy colours in incandescent light but turn to much more vivid in daylight.

Brazil Golden Beryl
Very often when I purchase rough stones there are tinies like thin needle-like Beryl-crystals. Easy for faceting Baguettes but I don't like those too much. Much better are the French Cuts, here the #1 with a nicegolden colour and only some minor internals..
