"Tanganyika Trading 2" deals in larger parcels of rough gemstones aimed at the dealer/cutter. The parcels of rough are direct from the mine to the buyer. Some rough grading and cleaning has been done but not to the degree as those stones from African Gemstones.

NOTE : From time to time, we buy in 'test' parcels which give us some idea of the color and clarity of stones from new deposits or from new contacts.
On offer (below) are a number of 'test' parcels, (marked with a 'T' at the end of the Reference number).
Although good colors, the clarity of the stones did not pass our requirements, and, are offered at 'knock-down' prices.



Hello to you all,
The 'Birthday Sale' is now over, and, considering that over 1500 jewellery companies closed in the States and Canada during 2016 and a further 900 jewellery companies as well as 3500 major stores selling apparel, costume jewellery, bags, shoes, etc. closed in 2017, Logan and I were very happy with the outcome. However, we have seen a number of our older customers/cutters retiring and fewer younger cutters coming into the business. China was also responsible for this, coming into the market very heavily in Africa, buying up whatever they could find and paying unheard of prices. Using their cheap labour, cut stones were thrown on the market at prices which the smaller cutter in the west couldn't compete against. Consequently, we have seen a change in the buying pattern, smaller, less expensive gems are no longer in demand by our customers who have switched to the more expensive pieces. Thus, we also have to change our policies, smaller stones, slow movers etc. will now revert back to Tanganyika Trading and will be sold in parcels and African Gemstones will concentrate on better quality materials which are more in demand. Tanzania placed an embargo on the export of all rough material from the beginning of this year and have now cancelled their yearly 'Gem Show' which took place in Arusha once a year. This was the only time we were allowed to purchase rough Tanzanite. In view of this, African Gemstones will now start marketing large cut Tanzanites from Tanzania (still allowed out at this moment). These stones, although having a very good color, have not been cut to the high American standards, but, because of our pricing, this will open up a market for the cutter to recut the stones and make a good profit on them.
We will try to slash prices even lower than we have had in the past in an effort to boost the cutting industry and primarily give our customers the best overall price available. All prices on the Tanganyika Trading lists have been reduced overall.

NEW MATERIAL ON THIS LIST -
Purple Mozambique Garnet
This has been one of the prettiest Garnets found in recent years, showing a color-change from a rich purple color seen in subdued light to a purple-red magenta combination in strong sunlight or incandescent light. Please note that all the material we have on offer was photographed in sunlight.

Originally appearing on the market in Bangkok in 2016, the Garnets immediately created a sensation and cut stones soon made their way to the Tuscon Show. To say the rough is scarce is an understatement, this is the first really good parcel we have had. The material is from the Manica Province in Mozambique, an area which is currently controlled by the Renamo, a militant armed rebel group, not exactly a good place to operate a mine!

According to the GIA, the Garnet is a mixture of Pyrope, Almandine, Spessartite and Grossular. Large stones are rare, and most material is quite included. The stones we have were selected out of kilos and kilos ofr rough. And, do yourself a favour, GOOGLE the prices of cut Purple Garnet being asked.

Happy Cutting!!

Hilmar and Tamzin
