    SPECIMEN SETS

 

 

NOTICE:

Most schools are now generally aware that we have (more or less) retired. 

We closed our business premises in 2009 after more than 40 years in full-time business.

However, we are currently disposing of our large stock of mineral specimens. What we have left are listed in our rocks & minerals specimen page and will not be replaced.  Some are limited quantities.

This also applies to our FOSSILS listing / price list.

Due to the lack of demand and storage space most of the Sedimentary, Igneous & Metamorphic specimens were dumped last year.

Also, I am afraid we no longer put together boxed specimens sets but we still have a few left and these are listed hereunder for your reference. The quantities available are shown in red. 

Sincerely:

 David Cooper

DIAMOND DISPLAY SETS

 

The following DIAMOND DISPLAY SETS and separate stones are available.

If you've ever seen similar models of diamonds in synthetic spinel or, even worse, moulded glass or plastic, you'll know exactly what we mean.

If you are selling the most expensive stone in the world, we believe you should have the most beautiful aids.

The material used here is, of course, cubic zirconia but CZ is normally badly cut. 

A lapidary by our associated company has been set up in Sri Lanka specially to produce material for these aids. Here CZ is cut to the same exacting standards that are used for diamonds. The simplest of our aids  takes an experienced cutter at least half a day to make and quality is maintained by the manager, a graduate of the gem-cutting school in Ida Oberstein.

The quality shows everywhere - except in the price. We are actually cheaper than those glass imitations we were talking about earlier !

Please contact us for an illustrated catalogue showing the various sets and shapes.

 

 

DIAMOND DISPLAY SETS     (Cubic Zirconia):

PRICE

Box 1 - Diamond Set - 10 stones (Round - Brilliant cut)

Everybody talks about a one-carat diamond but how many know how big it is? In this box, we have stones the equivalent sizes to diamonds of 5, 10, 20, 25, 50 and 75 points and 1, 1.25, 1.50 and 2 carats, each cut to within 1/20mm of ideal diamond size as given by the Presidium diamond gauge.

The stones in this box is the same as Box 1 except only to 1 carat.
