The chrysoberyl family is best known for the more valuable alexandrite and cat's eye varieties. Faceted chrysoberyl is a beautiful gem which is not as well known in its own right.
What are some of the properties of chrysoberyl gemstones?
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.
man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
