Some new gems cut!

Here are some new gem completed  June 15th and 16th and available for purchase.

Namibian indicolite tourmaline with superb color,this gemstone has very little if any discernible green.These Namibian stones are very hard to find especially in this color.
It has a few small inclusions off to one side which are visible in the picture but not with the naked eye,bear in mind this image is magnified many time the actual size,one of these tiny inclusions breaks the surface and could not be removed in the cutting process and again is not eye visible,I usually don't cut anything quite this small anymore unless for a set but in this case the color is so superb that it more than makes up for the size.
6.25mm 1.2ct vs currently available at pre website listing price of $550.00


 
A sparkling bright and very unusual pair of watermelon Oregon sunstone's,these gems just pop,color shows predominantly a golden orange with slight green border around the edges.
vs ( a few spots visible under 10X magnification ) One facet has a few inclusions which couldn't be removed in the polish stage but does not affect the appearance of the stone in any way.
6.5mm 2.2ct vs Currently available at pre website listing price of $375.00
