For most of time, the job of a lapidary has traditionally been thought of as a craft rather than as an art. Cutting gemstones takes considerable skill and knowledge. This is mostly because gem cutting is a skill that virtually anyone can acquire with practice, persistence, and a bit of talent. In addition, the modern faceting machines that are available today make the task of cutting precise facet angles much easier. Cutting gems was largely a matter of technique, not artistic inspiration and design.

GemSelect is the best in every catagory that I have found yet. I hope to continue to place more orders to receive great gems !
Many beautiful gems on the site. Love that you are actually shipped the gem that is shown in the photos. Also cool that they give a write up of each gem detailing hardness, characteristics, and best uses for mounting. Great site! Looking forward to seeing these gems in person.
