For gem web photos - - it would help some inexperienced gem buyers like me to show the gem next to a common object such as a US dime for example. Two of the blue star sapphires I purchased are not suited for ring mounting - - way too small. Now I know to purchase a caret weight of about 12 to 20 carets.
If you want a gem that you can trust to not be treated, or if it is ita's disclosed this is the place! Therea's something for everybody. I really like knowing that the picture of the item is the one Ia'm buying, not a sample or stock photo. If you make jewelry, buy gems here! You can even buy a gem and have it set by a jeweler. Again, they have an amazing inventory, and prices are more than fair. You wona't be disappointed! I just wish they sold uncut gems. Sometimes I just want a specimen in the crystal form. Ia'm surprised they had no quartz from Arkansas, but they have a great selection of anything Ia've ever looked for.
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.
