Discovered only in 1974, Larimar is hard to find outside of the Caribbean. By chemical composition, Larimar is a hydrated sodium calcium silicate with manganese, and has a hardness of 4.5 to 5 on the Mohs scale.
I have known about GemSelect for a while but this is my first purchase because I am a jewelry maker in the market for lower-priced gems that I can resell in jewelry. It's difficult to make much of a profit on cheaper jewelry when the shipping price is sometimes half of the total cost of the stone. I would make more purchases if I was in the market for a lot of higher-priced gems, but for now it will be just every once in a while that I shop here.
That being said, I think that the prices for gems are fair and I will continue shopping with GemSelect for my higher-priced gems that I make for myself or for orders that want specific gems that I can only find here.
