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. Items were gorgeous and exactly as pictured. Ordered on Monday, rec'd. Thursday AM !! I liked the website and the details of the items. It was an easy, fast and clean transaction. Admitting here that I have purchased from GemsTV and found that some gems ordered were less than advertised. Now I am happy that I can see an exact picture of the item I am to receive.
I discovered Gem Select several years ago and after unsuccessfully trying to find REAL jewelry at the stores here that weren't completely out of my price range I tried online. Most of the sites had jewelry already made that were hideous. When I stumbled on gem select I found that I could design my own jewelry and pick my own stones at a very reasonable cost. And the most compliments that I ever had was for my single large amethyst that hung on a very simple silver chain. I think my total cost was about $64. I will never buy from anywhere else. Thank you Gem Select.
I am a full-time student in University with many bills. I came across GemSelect while browsing the web looking for unique Valentine's Day gift ideas for my long-time girlfriend. I didn't have a lot of money to buy a nice ring ...
