Assembled gemstones have gone through a type of layering treatment used to enhance color and durability. Assembled stones typically come in the form of doublets and triplets. The treatment is very common for ammolite and opal. It is very well accepted within the gem trade, as long as the treatment is disclosed. Assembled stones are typically composed of a host or matrix rock layered with a thin strip of precious stone. The host rock backing provides thickness, strength and overall durability. More about treatments
Ammolite is a rare gemstone of organic origin that is fairly new to the market, with commercial mining beginning only in 1981. Ammolite is the fossilized shell of ammonites, which are composed primarily of aragonite, the same mineral that makes up nacreous pearls. Ammolite's main attraction is a remarkably vivid play of color. Ammolite is typically used to create doublets or triplets that are suitable for making durable jewelry.
I have purchased many gems from this company and am always very pleased with the quality of gems and their cuts. Each time I am pleasantly surprised by how quickly I receive them! I will order again and again. Always very happy with them!!
I enjoy this newsletter for the information and descriptions of the gems as well as all the history and myths surrounding the various gems. This newsletter makes me wish I was young so I could study to be a gemologist!
Excellent will be returning to make more purchases! Ordered one sapphire and one tourmaline, both arrived within 3 working days and appeared to be the exact stones shown in both pictures.Smooth transaction and very well set out website, easy to use and informative. Will definately be buying more gems from Gemselect. Gems are a little darker than they appear on the website.
