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.
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.
I ordered a beautiful opal from Gemselect but what I recieved in my mailbox was an envelope torn open with only the packing slip inside. My first thought was theives but after talking to my post office I learned that the envelope and stone were destroyed in one of their machines and the mail carrier just put the package with no explaination in my box. I wasn't quite sure what to do at this point; I needed the stone quickly but couldn't afford to simply order a new one and I didn't know who...
My wife and I love Gemselect. We have bought Spinels, and Kyanite. The stones arrived sooner than expected and matched perfectly the description. A little back ground , My wife is a G.I.A/G.G. with 15yrs plus in the industry. She has worked at Cartier's (Madrid Spain) along with 3 highend retail stores in So. California. She was blown away by the prices when I found this great company. Highly Recommend. Sincerely, Mr. Richard...
I'm very pleased with the stone I received from Gem Select. The price is right, it came very quickly, and was packaged well. It even came in a small bag that listed the weight, quality etc. My only complaint is the inefficient way I had to find the specific bank for my credit card. Kind of old-school, but what the heck. The stone is beautiful and the website super easy to navigate. I recommend this company,
