Gemstone cameos are carvings which typically feature a raised relief image of a person's face or head, and in some cases, the silhouette or outline of an individual. The art of carving and engraving gemstones is an ancient and traditional practice known as glyptography. Historically, cameos were often used for the making of signet rings, as well as religious and mourning jewelry. Nowadays, cameos are becoming increasingly popular for the production of trendy pendants, brooches, and various other jewelry accessories.
Cameos and carvings made from natural gemstone materials are quite rare because it requires the skills and talent of an expert carver, as well as a lot of gem-quality material in order to produce them. The most common material used for cameos includes different varieties of quartz, such as agate, chalcedony, and carnelian, as well as amethyst and colorless quartz (rock crystal). In addition to quartz, cameo gemstone carvings can also be found in a variety of other gemstone types as well, including mother of pearl and ruby-zoisite.

I was looking for very specific loose gems for my collection and some loose gems to add to a piece of jewelry I want to have made and Gem Select had everything I was looking for and the selection and price ranges were outstanding. I will absolutely purchase from this vendor again and often. I am so very pleased with the items I received.
I checked reviews throughout the internet and was thoroughly impressed with the positive experiences of others. I’m constantly worried about purchasing fake stones. The many satisfied customers have given me confidence in what I’m purchasing.
Nice selection of different types of gemstones and it’s nice to be able to filter your options to get close to what you are looking for. Plus each gem is photographed so you see the actual look of the specific gems you are considering
The Ruby Zoisite bird is beautiful and will delight my sister, I hope, for her birthday in July. I, personally love the stone which is within her ruby birthday stone, and the bird appears beautifully carved.
