Peridot belongs to the forsterite-fayalite mineral series which is part of the olivine group. It is one of the "idiochromatic" gems, meaning its color comes from the basic chemical composition of the mineral itself, not from minor impurities, and therefore will only be found in shades of green. In fact peridot is one of the few gemstones found in only one color. Historically important sources in Egypt have been superseded by today's main sources in Arizona and Pakistan. The Pakistani peridot in particular is very fine, and a new find in Pakistan in the mid-1990's has made peridot available to a wider market. The supply of peridot from China is also increasing and we have recently sourced top quality peridot from Vietnam.
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,
