Beryl (beryllium aluminum silicate) is one of the most important gem minerals. Beryl is colorless in pure form; it is the many different impurities that give beryl its varied coloration. The most famous beryl is emerald, but other beryl varieties include aquamarine, heliodor and morganite. The name beryl is used for the red and golden varieties, which are simply called red beryl and golden beryl. Beryl is quite a hard stone (7.5-8 on the Mohs scale), so it's suitable for all kinds of jewelry.

Nice inventory, decent pricing. Site is easy to navigate.
I love GemSelect! Every stone that I ever purchased has been carefully packaged, and sometimes comes with origin info. The stone I just ordered is for my engagement ring, because my Fiance is making my ring! I am so amazed with the selection that this site has, and I am so impressed with the prices.
i saw a program on the science channel about varieties of fluorite - a special on John 'something' from perhaps wales and varieties of colors... and i was chatting w/ friend who sent me link to your site
Well I was looking for the perfect stone to set in a ring for my partner. I found this Garnet on a website called Gemselect and it captured my eye. I had to have it for her. It looked as perfect as she does. I got the stone I wanted for $150 shipped straight to me. It’ll be the perfect Christmas present
