I was looking for a gemstone called Sphene/Titanite and found it on GemSelect. They had many gems to choose from and had good prices. I received my order a little later than expected but given that it's coming from overseas I wasn't too worried. The 2 gems I received are beautiful. I have to say that I have no gem knowledge- I am a novice and I ordered the Sphene for healing purposes, so I am hoping they are real. I have no way of confirming if that is true. But they are beautiful!
I have ordered from Gem Select before. I was trying to order again but did not find a good selection of rubelitte. I ended up ordering from another company. I told a lot of my clients about your wide selection of amethyst. They could not believe it. These clients have been with me forever. The stones I am buying are for them. They will NEVER believe I went out and bought them stones like this. It would not be possible without you. StarLanka did not have a good selection of amethyst. I guess different companies carry different things A?A,A?A?A?A,A?A 3/4 A?a'A?'A?A,A?
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.
