Welcome to Glitters Gemstones, dealers in premium rough and cut gemstones.
We have just uploaded our newest selection of premium facet rough.
Cherrypicked personally in Africa, there is a broad selection of material for gemstone collections or high quality jewelry.
Notably, there is new Tanzanite, including a piece of green Zoisite. A nice selection of Umba sapphire and some exceptional pink Spinel.
We have also restocked some of our more budget oriented material, with close to 300ct of Pink Zircon from Mozambique available.
Absent from the new selection is any Tsavorite, it is becoming scarcer and scarcer. Even the once plentiful merelani mint is disappearing from the marketplace, with only 4 new stones this month.
We have just concluded a lengthy buying trip through East Africa.
In the coming weeks we will have some exciting new rough gemstones available including some 25ct + Sapphires, a 45ct Tanzanite and some of the best spinel we have ever seen.
Absent from the market currently is good quality rough Tourmaline, Grossular Garnet, Tsavorite and Purple Spinel. Any of our existing stock represents great value as replacement value may exceed the current sales price.
We will be making the trip to the Lismore Gemfest to exhibit our range of premium quality rough and cut gemstones. This is a massive show with lots of gems, minerals and fossils available. If you will be in the area, please come down and see us.
The show is being held by the Lismore Gem and Lapidary Club at the Lismore Showgrounds. Alexandra Pde Lismore.

I am Lawrence Stephenson, Director of Glitters Gemstones Pty. Ltd. and a professional faceter from Brisbane, Australia. Having a passion for natural gemstones, both rough and cut it is truly a gift to be able to work with gems every day.
Being a perfectionist, I have sourced a stunning range of absolute top quality gemstone rough from around the world. I have then spent many hours crafting them into stunning faceted gems for your jewellery or collection.
I wish I could cut every single piece of gemstone rough I buy, however I can only spend a certain number of hours at the machine in a lifetime. Nonetheless, it is a pleasure to be able to offer to fellow lapidarists and collectors such a breathtaking array of rough gemstones.
If you are after a particular gemstone in a custom design for a specific piece of jewellery, I am able to facet commissioned works, either from my stock of rough, or a stone that you sourced or has special meaning.
Please take a look through my portfolio, I am always interested in talking with people around the world about gemstones, so please E-Mail Me if you have any questions.
