Garnet is associated with the Year of the Rat in Chinese astrology.
This size is suitable for a center-stone in a ring design.
For gem web photos - - it would help some inexperienced gem buyers like me to show the gem next to a common object such as a US dime for example. Two of the blue star sapphires I purchased are not suited for ring mounting - - way too small. Now I know to purchase a caret weight of about 12 to 20 carets.
O.K. experience. Pictures could be a little better, offer more views, especially full face on, to get a better idea of how a stone would look mounted in a ring, i.e., how centered the star is. The prices seem pretty fair.
I love Gemselect and have ordered from them many times. I have always been extremely happy with my purchases. In fact, I got a shipment this week and I decided to buy almost the identical set that I received this week, and that's what this purchase is!
If you want a gem that you can trust to not be treated, or if it is it's disclosed this is the place! There's something for everybody. I really like knowing that the picture of the item is the one I'm buying, not a sample or stock photo. If you make jewelry, buy gems here! You can even buy a gem and have it set by a jeweler. Again, they have an amazing inventory, and prices are more than fair. You won't be disappointed! I just wish they sold uncut gems. Sometimes I just want a specimen in the crystal form. I'm surprised they had no quartz from Arkansas, but they have a great selection of anything I've ever looked for.
