About Strawberry Quartz
Quartz with red inclusions of lepidocrosite, hematite or goethite is often sold under the name strawberry quartz. It has some similarities to rutile quartz, which contains inclusions of titanium.
I have known about GemSelect for a while but this is my first purchase because I am a jewelry maker in the market for lower-priced gems that I can resell in jewelry. It's difficult to make much of a profit on cheaper jewelry when the shipping price is sometimes half of the total cost of the stone. I would make more purchases if I was in the market for a lot of higher-priced gems, but for now it will be just every once in a while that I shop here.
That being said, I think that the prices for gems are fair and I will continue shopping with GemSelect for my higher-priced gems that I make for myself or for orders that want specific gems that I can only find here.
