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.
Any time I want a really nice gem to put into a ring or a pendant, I go first to GemSelect. I have tried other vendors and the quality is not even close. Besides, I have to take what I can get from them. With GemSelect, I can do a search on size, shape, gemstone, color, cost, etc. or any combination. And their prices are very reasonable. Wow! All this and quick delivery, too!!
Items ordered were fantastic but, I received a note with the order about shipping. Am I being charged more for shipping? I realize the items were shipped from Thailand but if there are extra shipping charges please inform me beforehand.
