Have been pretty busy lately working a new patch of the mine and have been producing some very nice rough. Have managed to find a little time to list just a small selection of this including a couple of very special pieces that we have had put away for a while now.
We can now safely say we have something to suit everyone with affordable pieces costing less than $100 per piece up to some very large pieces which suit the investor or collector. The largest piece of sapphire rough we have listed currently is a whopping 47.5 carat blue which is impressive in every way – we dont mind window shoppers so make sure you take a look at this rare beauty.
We have also just received back our latest batch of cutting – some excellent cut sapphires here in a range of sizes, shapes and colours including some very nice parti-coloured sapphire (greens, bicolor and yellow). We were able to cut about a third of this batch fully natural – ie. untreated in any way so if you are looking for unheated sapphire, we hope to have something suitable for you.
Just a quick photo here to whet your appetite (click to see full size): this is just a batch of mixed size rounds tipped out on our grading table. About 660 carats here and plenty of sorting into sizes and grading for colour to be done but at a rough glance, we can see some great partis and yellows with the majority of the parcel being our typical Reddestone blues.
cheers for now from Aussie Sapphire
