Enstatite gemstones are somewhat rare and lesser known. They are considered collector's gemstones. Enstatite belongs to the pyroxene group of minerals and was first described in 1855. Enstatite gemstones have a hardness of 5.5 and a vitreous luster when polished. Some of the finest enstatite specimens are sourced from Burma and Sri Lanka. Cat's eye enstatite and star enstatite gemstones are known, but extremely rare.
I had a limited budget and wanted a star ruby. GemSelect offered small, but pretty stones at a very reasonable price. I've always been satisfied with my GemSelect purchases, although there are also eBay vendors I use for less expensive gems. Their selection of more expensive stones, like rubies, is very limited, however.
I decided recently to start a gemstone collection! I searched online for a reputable gem merchant and found gem select! Their selection is gorgeous and I’m excited to receive my first package! Checkout was a breeze!
