This gemstone produces iridescence. This is one of the most mesmerising optical effects seen in gemstones.

Great selection, the user interface was somewhat irksome. If there was a way to filter out specific items (I.e. particular treatments to the gemstones), or would greatly improve the site. Otherwise, great!
I ordered 4-2 ct oval ruby and sold the first one by lunch time and then 2 more by the end of the week. tripled my money and the clients were all quite happy. BTW I believe in full disclosure, i.e., the client knew they were fusion filled.
Through my Gemology course at OSU, I found this website and thought it's layout was appealing, as well as the amount of gems that are offered. Purchasing one was easy and simple, and I'll most likely do it again some time.
I believe this market could grow very large in the wake of cryptocurrencies as gold and silver become less popular. I believe birthstones will begin to increase in popularity for jewelry and meaningful trinkets. I think this website should consider another metric that gauges how "raw" the mineral/gem/stone/etc. is-- how processed it has been. Some people may want to get the raw material from a specific location, know its history, and contract someone to refine it into a personal keepsake.
