A cabochon is a gemstone which has been cut and polished into a rounded or domed convex top with a flat bottom. This is an old fashioned cut that was common before lapidaries learned the technique of faceting gemstones.
Citrine's lively yellow colors are perfect for cabochon shaped gemstones and despite the age old technique can be made into modern and fashionable items of jewelry.
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.
