Ive been shopping here many times before, so navigating around was easy. I am accustomed to the quality of the items and that's the main reason I come here. When I need non heated stones I know I can count on GemSelect being authentic. I trust them because I double check their quality. And never had problems with them. And yes I do recommend shopping there to some of my clients who are "less knowledgable" of industry. GemSelect is so user friendly they're great for beginner gem shoppers!
For gem web photos - - it would help some inexperienced gem buyers like me to show the gem next to a common object such as a US dime for example. Two of the blue star sapphires I purchased are not suited for ring mounting - - way too small. Now I know to purchase a caret weight of about 12 to 20 carets.
I really enjoy how you can sort the types of gemstones by cut, color, and size. The website is laid out very well. To be able to sort through the gemstones on the rolling slide to the left of the page is a useful tool.
I was googling information about Aztec Gemstones and came across this site. I found the information useful and decided to look around the site more to see if I could find actual jewelry. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to find only gemstones seeing as I can now have pieces custom made.This was my first time on the site and with the layout, it was easy to understand everything. I only had trouble with measurements because I had to find a ruler and look at the sizing, haha.
I have ordered from Gem Select before. I was trying to order again but did not find a good selection of rubelitte. I ended up ordering from another company. I told a lot of my clients about your wide selection of amethyst. They could not believe it. These clients have been with me forever. The stones I am buying are for them. They will NEVER believe I went out and bought them stones like this. It would not be possible without you. StarLanka did not have a good selection of amethyst. I guess different companies carry different things ðŸ¤·ðŸ¾â€â™‚ï¸
I would recommend you shop at Gemselect i been holding it off and i finally made my first purchase. Just one of many. They have a great selection of stones. I will definitely order again and i recommend you order too!

Diffusion treatment involves heating a gemstone with one or more chemicals. Surface diffusion affects mainly the surface of the gem, while lattice diffusion penetrates the crystal lattice. Many star sapphires are diffusion treated with rutile to improve the star. More about treatments
