Diaspore, sometimes marketed under the name Zultanite, is a color change gem from Turkey recently introduced to the international market. Diaspore is a hydrated aluminum oxide colored by manganese. It was first faceted as a gemstone in the 1980's, but has never been mined commercially until recently. With reasonably good hardness (6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale) and good brilliance, diaspore has been attracting considerable attention in the gem world.
Under natural or fluorescent light, diapsore has a kiwi green color, with flashes of yellow. Diaspore displays a champagne color under incandescent lighting, and when exposed to subdued lighting, such as candlelight, it has a pinkish color. The larger the stone, the more pronounced the color change effect will be.

Talking with grandson about birthstones. He expressed interest in his birthstone.I found your website online. It offered an inexpensive way to teach him about gemstones.
This purchase was very easy to complete. I have been buying items every once in a while from you for a few years now, and always love the simplicity of teaching and purchasing items. I will, of course, purchase from you again.
GemSelect has a vast selection of gemstones in various size, shape and price. I like it because the gems are precut and ready for the novice jewler. The website is very easy to navigate and purchasing was a breeze.
