I was looking for a gemstone called Sphene/Titanite and found it on GemSelect. They had many gems to choose from and had good prices. I received my order a little later than expected but given that it's coming from overseas I wasn't too worried. The 2 gems I received are beautiful. I have to say that I have no gem knowledge- I am a novice and I ordered the Sphene for healing purposes, so I am hoping they are real. I have no way of confirming if that is true. But they are beautiful!
I purchased a stone as a gift for my wife. I'm waiting to see how soon I get it and how well it matches the description on the web site. Future orders may follow based on the overall experience of this one.
Love the site. Huge selection. Have been using it for gem stones for several years. They have pictures and sometimes videos of the actual stone you are getting and a lot of information on the types of stones. The check out is a little different than most online purchases, but have never had any problems or issues. You just end up checking out through Paypal or another bank site.
I really enjoy how you can sort the types of gemstones by cut, color, and size. The website is laid out very well. To be able to sort through the gemstones on the rolling slide to the left of the page is a useful tool.
