Agate is a form of chalcedonyquartz that forms in concentric layers in a remarkable variety of colors and textures. Fire agate is an opaque, limonite-bearing chalcedony with iridescence which is created by diffraction of light by the layered structure.
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!
