About Star Garnet
Garnets have been widely known for thousands of years. Although the color red occurs most frequently, there are also garnets showing different shades of green, pale to bright yellow, fiery orange and fine earth and umbra shades. Blue has been the only color that is not available in garnet, but recently color-change garnets from Madagascar have been found n blue.
Garnet has very good hardness and a high refractive index. Garnets are quite sturdy and resistant to everyday wear and tear, and uncomplicated to work into jewelry. Garnets qualify for any cut and come in various shapes and offer an affordable price per carat weight. Garnets are almost always untreated..
Star garnet is a rare and unsuual garnet, found only in Idado in the USA and in India. It displays a four-ray star due to aligned inclusions of rutile.
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.
