Apart from the high hardness (8.5 on the Mohs scale; right behind corundum and diamond), it takes a good polish and has a very nice luster. This stone is excellent value.
What are good ways to use chrysoberyl gemstones?
Chrysoberyl Gemstones are an amazing solution to earrings, necklaces, bracelets, as well as rings and pendants. Due to Chrysoberyl Gemstones hardness, they are suitable for all jewelry types including those made for daily wear.
I ordered this really nice pair of Rubies from Gemselect and I love them because of all the detailed information you get. Also if you scroll down you can see other similar items single, in pairs, lots, bigger, smaller, etc and it's such an easy website to use.
I wasn't sure where to go to find a variety of gemstones to choose from in the size and shape that I was looking for. I'm really glad I found this website because the search options and filters made it really easy to find what I was looking for. The prices seem quite reasonable. This will be the first place I go the next time I'm looking for a gemstone!
