If you want a gem that you can trust to not be treated, or if it is itâ€™s disclosed this is the place! Thereâ€™s something for everybody. I really like knowing that the picture of the item is the one Iâ€™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 wonâ€™t be disappointed! I just wish they sold uncut gems. Sometimes I just want a specimen in the crystal form. Iâ€™m surprised they had no quartz from Arkansas, but they have a great selection of anything Iâ€™ve ever looked for.
I was looking for a tourmaline but although there were numerous beautiful stones to choose from, there was none that fit my need. Then I thought of some other beautiful stones I love and sunstone came to mind. I so thrilled when I was able to find the most gorgeous sunstone and with the exact specifications of my need. GemSelect makes it extremely easy to find the exact stone your looking for quickly and check out is just as easy to go through. I would (and have) definitely recommend GemSelect because of the large selection of stones, ease of use, and fast affordable shipping.
