Rhodochrosite is an interesting rose-colored gemstone that was only introduced to the market around 1940. Though it is not particularly hard -- rating only 4 on the Mohs scale -- it has become popular as a decorative material due to its attractive soft color and its intriguing variegated markings.
Transparent red crystals are rare; rhodochrosite is usually found in an aggregate form with alternating light and dark stripes in zigzag bands, somewhat similar in that respect to malachite or agate. The most common colors are light red and pink and it displays a vitreous luster when polished.
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.
