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 Historically important sources in Egypt have been superseded by today's main sources in Arizona and Pakistan.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.
Excellent will be returning to make more purchases! Ordered one sapphire and one tourmaline, both arrived within 3 working days and appeared to be the exact stones shown in both pictures.Smooth transaction and very well set out website, easy to use and informative. Will definately be buying more gems from Gemselect. Gems are a little darker than they appear on the website.
I have purchased from many sites in Thailand and to date GemSelect has been the best. Prices are fair and shipping is quick. Quality is as described and website is easy to navigate. I would recommend this company to others and plan on returning in the future if prices stay competitive and service stays consistent.
GemSelect is probably the best website for buying gemstones. Their layout makes it incredibly easy to sort and filter results to find exactly the sort of stone you are looking for, which is good because their selection is enormous. I am truly impressed with their site layout and information on the product you are viewing. You get exactly what you see. I can't recommend them enough.
