US-amerikanische Edelsteine Buy gems by country of origin. The United States is not known as being one of the important gemstone producing countries, but this was not always the case. In fact, back in the first decade of the 20th century, the US was the world's leading producer of fine tourmaline, with important tourmaline mines located mostly in Maine and California.
Commercial gemstone mining in the US is still active in several other states. Surprisingly, the top state (based on total produced value) is Tennessee. This is because Tennessee is home to the American Pearl Company, which operates the only freshwater pearl farm in America. Other important states include Arizona, Oregon, Montana, Nevada and Arkansas. Hawaii is also known to have some of the world's finest coral, but due to strict coral laws, Hawaiian coral is not allowed to be exported in any amount. There are many fine American gemstones, but they are becoming increasingly rare, especially when it comes to fine Nevada turquoise and Oregon sunstone, which are two of the most sought-after USA gemstone types.

Talking with grandson about birthstones. He expressed interest in his birthstone.I found your website online. It offered an inexpensive way to teach him about gemstones.
This purchase was very easy to complete. I have been buying items every once in a while from you for a few years now, and always love the simplicity of teaching and purchasing items. I will, of course, purchase from you again.
GemSelect has a vast selection of gemstones in various size, shape and price. I like it because the gems are precut and ready for the novice jewler. The website is very easy to navigate and purchasing was a breeze.
