This is a 3 piece lot of natural Asscher cut Apatites in the exact size of 6.14 x 5.96 x 4.97mm. These products are from Madagascar and weigh 4.15ct. The clarity of these Apatites is "VS" which stands for "Very Slightly Included" and is definitely eye-clean. These gemstones are untreated; no treatment at all has been applied. The lot for sale contains 3 pieces green Apatites as pictured, the price listed is for the whole lot in the image.
These gemstones are cut in Asscher Cut. The Asscher Cut is named after its first designer; Joseph Asscher, who designed the Asscher cut in 1902 to increase the brilliance of step-cut diamonds. Nowadays it is used for various colord gemstones.
These gemstones have not been treated in any way. They are 100% natural and untreated.
These gemstones come in the calibrated size of 6 X 6 mm which is preferred for standard-sized jewelry settings.
Apatite gemstones work well when placed over various Chakras according to their color - green for the Heart Chakra, orange for Sacral, yellow for Solar Plexus and so on.
Apatite is 'the Stone of Inspiration and Motivation'.
I had a limited budget and wanted a star ruby. GemSelect offered small, but pretty stones at a very reasonable price. I've always been satisfied with my GemSelect purchases, although there are also eBay vendors I use for less expensive gems. Their selection of more expensive stones, like rubies, is very limited, however.
My significant other told me about gem select, he knows I have a small business in making jewelry. I often use these and experiment with new designs and seeing the wide variety of options really is amazing. I love all of the items I see, but sometimes I want more than one of the selection and there is only one of that type. I understand it takes work to put these together so I am not complaining. I would recommend this sort of thing to my friends that might be interested in making jewelry or to others that are on forums say on reddit or other sites.
Completely would recommend this company to any gem collector, jewelry store, or someone looking for a gemstone to repair their jewelry. There is an abundance of choices at great prices! If you dona't see what you need exactly the customer service department will go above and beyond to meet your needs. Shipping is very reasonable! The gemstones always arrive well before the expected arrival date. This company has very high standards of meeting their customers needs! They are the number 1 company I go to when looking for any gemstone. They are also very detailed in their descriptions so there is no confusion at all as what you are purchasing! Highly recommended!!!!
I decided recently to start a gemstone collection! I searched online for a reputable gem merchant and found gem select! Their selection is gorgeous and I'm excited to receive my first package! Checkout was a breeze!
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.
