If you want a gem that you can trust to not be treated, or if it is ita's disclosed this is the place! Therea's something for everybody. I really like knowing that the picture of the item is the one Ia'm buying, not a sample or stock photo. If you make jewelry, buy gems here! You can even buy a gem and have it set by a jeweler. Again, they have an amazing inventory, and prices are more than fair. You wona't be disappointed! I just wish they sold uncut gems. Sometimes I just want a specimen in the crystal form. Ia'm surprised they had no quartz from Arkansas, but they have a great selection of anything Ia've ever looked for.
