"Eye of the Dragon"(c)
This spectacular gem is a flawless 26.10 carat ametrine that is my "Eye of the Dragon" design. The original gem shown here, won First Place in the Faceted Stone Category in the 2005 "Gemmy's" International lapidary competition, which was sponsored by the Lapidary Journal and Colored Stone magazines. It was shown in the January 2005 issue of each magazine. It was also shown in the 2004 June issue of Professional Jeweler magazine. It was also shown on the 2005 Denver show poster for the 2005 Denver Gem and Mineral show. In addition it was a feature stone on display at the Denver show theme case. That original gem now resides in the collection of the Houston Museum of Natural History.
Prices usually range from $400 to $1200 depending on the size and final carat weight. This design must be executed in a large stone for the light patterns to be maximized. Treat yourself or for that someone special, just email me about cutting a special piece for you!

I have a collection of star designs for topaz and I cut each one a little different, so no two are exactly alike. This one measures approx. 15.77 x 11.27mm 20.06ct. Order a Lone Star blue topaz by emailing or calling today. Prices usually run from $200 to $500 per finished piece, depending on the final size.
This golden citrine won the Governor's Award in the First Competition of WSU Alumni Art sponsored by the Ulrich Museum of Fine Art. Featured on the poster for the 2005 Denver Show, it was on display at the 2005 Show theme case. It now has a new home in the collection of the Houston Museum. I cut this stone in honor of the Wichita State Shockers due to the shocking display of light in this design. One of a kind original.

The same technique is used to grow the beautiful Chatham emerald crystals. This gem measures approx. 4.25 x 12 x 6.5 mm and weighs approx 4.75 ct. A sparkling beauty cut from this original copyrighted design can easily be yours and will be delivered with my production certificate. The original stone is now in a private collection. This cut usually costs between $300 to $800 depending on the final weight of the gem.
"Neolithic Journey" Black Onyx cabochon
|Ametrine ||Bolivia |
|0405A1 ||This gem is a custom concave cut untreated, natural crystal of Bolivian AMETRINE. Ametrine is a gem variety of quartz Mother Nature made that has both amethyst and citrine in the crystal. Weight is approximately 6.53carats. It measures approx 13.18mm x 11.19 x 7.92 mm . I designed this beautiful cushion cut, using a modified version of my award winning "Eye of the Dragon" cut. The crystals I use usually grade VVS in clarity (which means they are extremely clean, even under 10X).The unique light patterns exploding from this gem design are due to extra concave cutting not usually seen -- especially in ametrine.(Most ametrine is cut in an emerald cut with the old 50/50 split color look.) As you can see this unique design brings more light into the stone adding brilliance, scintillation and exciting color. Our gems are always 100% guaranteed to please you, or simply contact us within 7days for instructions on returning for a full refund. Gem(s) must be returned undamaged and in the same condition as when sent. |
