Grandidierite Grandidierite is a very rare collector's gemstone named in honor of the French naturalist and explorer of Madagascar, Alfred Grandidier. Grandidierite is often referred to in the top 10 rarest gemstones in the world and occurs in aluminous boron-rich rocks and in pegmatites. It was first discovered in Madagascar in 1902 and then in small quantities in other areas of the world, but most grandidierite specimens come from Madagascar. The greenish-blue color of grandidierite is caused by the presence of iron. Grandidierite gemstones are usually faceted and sought after by collectors.

My experience with gemselect was awesome so far. I had a few questions about their website and making orders and they replied quickly and were happy to help. I have not received the items I ordered yet as I just ordered them this morning. Although, I truly feel I am going to be a very happy customer once I do receive my items. Gemselect guarantees all their items and have a great return policy just incase. The have a vast selection of all kinds of stones and not to mention their prices are much better than some other websites. Thanks Gemselect I’ll be doing business here from now on!
Great selection. Love the many learning features like articles and gem information. Prices competitive for natural stones. I do miss not having a selection of lab-made stones, CZ’s, etc, which are useful when price and cost are factors.
