In addition to the pioneering work of the lapidary artists displayed in the AP Colored Stones gallery, I also wanted to feature some favorite stones from my personal collection that I have acquired over the years through my travels. A combination of traditional and native cuts, these stones are all extraordinary in their own right for their exceptional color and quality. Since we are now in the month of October, I thought it would be a good time to show off two October birthstones; an exceptional 1.04 ct Mexican Cherry Fire Opal and a stunning 9.11 ct Marsala Tourmaline from Brazil.
Over the next few months I will be adding more stones from my personal collection, so stay tuned!
