Jyotische & Islamische Schmucksteine
Gemstone jewelry has been worn for thousands of years for several reasons; to display wealth, show status or for its beauty. Furthermore, special beliefs have long been associated with gemstones. For example, jyotish gems are gems that relate to Vedic astrology. In addition, many gems are referred to in the Holy Bible and there are many gemstones which have held traditional significance in Islam.
In Judeo-Christian tradition, the Bible refers to twelve stones which were set in the breastplate of Aaron, the high priest; each of the stones symbolized the twelve tribes of Israel. In Hinduism, there are nine gemstones which correspond with seven planets and two lunar nodes in Vedic astrology, which is also known as Jyotish or Hindu astrology. In Islam, the practice of wearing gemstones developed from Ali ibn Abi Talib, the cousin and son-in-law of the prophet Muhammad.

The opals I ordered are absolutely beautiful, very fiery and well-cut. The pictures online didn’t do them justice. Shipping did take longer than expected (I chose the standard option), but the gemstones I received were definitely worth the wait.
I have purchased gems from Gem Select twice a year, for more than a few years.Gem select is the best place to buy gems. The selection and presentation are genuine. What you see is what you get, keeping in mind the carat weight, and measurements they have listed. Never have I been disappointed with any gem I have received from them. Nan
GemSelect has a great selection of smaller cabochons. Many other retailers do not. Plus, the photo of the stone is the one you are purchasing. Shipping from Thailand is nearly as fast as from within the US. Stones are tightly and neatly packaged.
