I was looking for a gemstone called Sphene/Titanite and found it on GemSelect. They had many gems to choose from and had good prices. I received my order a little later than expected but given that it's coming from overseas I wasn't too worried. The 2 gems I received are beautiful. I have to say that I have no gem knowledge- I am a novice and I ordered the Sphene for healing purposes, so I am hoping they are real. I have no way of confirming if that is true. But they are beautiful!
I'd say that the information in the descriptions is rather sparse, and the state of the gems/their color treatment or lack thereof is vague and unimpressive. Nevertheless they've got a great variety of offerings. The only area I can see that they could improve is in turquoise, which could include unstabilised cabs or at least specific names relative to their mines as opposed to appearances. Thanks
Gemselect has good prices and many different varieties. I like to collect untreated natural loose gemstones and this is the only website I purchase from. All gemstones are highly detailed about information, state whether they are treated or not, county of origin. I highly recommend them.
