For anyone that is interested I am in Brazil now and am in the process of
hi-grading a 3,000 kilo lot of Tourmaline.I will have some small quantity
of 1gm up faceting material in various colors to sell.All the facet rough
to make melee is sold.But the best part of this lot is the cabachon and
specimen grade.It is some Morro Redondo which is a nice Red/Orange/Pink
down the “C” Axis and a bubble gum Pink color down the “A” axis.It also
occurs in a Pink/Blue-Green Bi-color.But all the Bi-colors will be
moderately included,suitable for specimens and few for cabs,Some have silk
and will make cat’s eyes.The price for the Cabachon or specimens $1/gm.
The bulk of the lot is Cruzeiro mine.Rich hot Reds&Pinks.Bi-colors of
every mix imaginable.The grading of this lot will take myself and 5 men
until the end of the week.I will have in hand Crystals starting tomarrow.
I can then photo and send direct E-mail to anyone who is interesed.They
also have 3 large Plates of Brezeina Amethyst.They weigh 25 kilo’s each
more or less.I think they are loaded with faceting roughs.And all are
knock-out table piece specimens.Price $30/kg.Anyone interested in the
Tourmaline or the Amethyst contact me.
If this list wants me to send photos just to see them I can send as
attachments to a post.I can send JPEG and will keep them down to 200x400
Pixels.But you tell me.I don’t think attachments should be sent unsolicted
to a list.
