Carnelian is a brownish red to orange variety of chalcedony quartz, colored by trace amounts of iron. Darker colors (red-brown to brown) are often referred to by the name Sard. Carnelian is one of the oldest gemstones, being widely used in ancient Rome to make signet or seal rings.
I've been very satisfied with the gems I have purchased since 4 years ago. Good service, variety, clear information regarding the stones for sale and very interesting gemstone information. Congratulations!
I really like the selection from GemSelect. My only complaint is that I would occasionally want a singular small gem for a small setting, but would only be able to find appropriately sized gems sold in pairs or more. There is a limit to how small of a gem that can be bought independently that I dislike.
Strengths: I LOVE the huge range of gems you offer, including collector's gems that are hard to find anywhere else. I also love the range of information provided, and the monthly newsletters!
Weaknesses: Due to the great range of inventory (a strength!), it's hard, even with all the useful filters, to narrow the search parameters enough! Suggestions: Add even more filters, such as "emerald green," not just "green," to your color filter choices. (Yes, just what you wanted, more coding work!)
Overall: Your site is incredibly valuable to gemhounds everywhere, whether we be jewelers, geologists, or just interested browsers. A wonderful resource!
