The chrysoberyl family is best known for the more valuable alexandrite and cat's eye varieties. Faceted chrysoberyl is a beautiful gem which is not as well known in its own right.
What are some of the properties of chrysoberyl gemstones?
Apart from the high hardness (8.5 on the Mohs scale; right behind corundum and diamond), it takes a good polish and has a very nice luster. This stone is excellent value.
What are good ways to use chrysoberyl gemstones?
Chrysoberyl Gemstones are an amazing solution to earrings, necklaces, bracelets, as well as rings and pendants. Due to Chrysoberyl Gemstones hardness, they are suitable for all jewelry types including those made for daily wear.
My experience with gemselect was awesome so far. I had a few questions about their website and making orders and they replied quickly and were happy to help. I have not received the items I ordered yet as I just ordered them this morning. Although, I truly feel I am going to be a very happy customer once I do receive my items. Gemselect guarantees all their items and have a great return policy just incase. The have a vast selection of all kinds of stones and not to mention their prices are much better than some other websites. Thanks Gemselect I’ll be doing business here from now on!
Great selection. Love the many learning features like articles and gem information. Prices competitive for natural stones. I do miss not having a selection of lab-made stones, CZ’s, etc, which are useful when price and cost are factors.
