Gemstones and crystals in their purest form are usually sought after by those who are interested in gems for therapeutic, medicinal and holistic alternative healing. Gem and mineral collectors also prize crystals and slices as they are as natural as possible, often being lightly polished and shaped only. Geodes are valued and graded for the amount of crystals contained within them and also the height of growth too. Crystal clusters or crystal plates are also valued for the amount of crystal growth, but usually clusters and plates are more similar to druzy gems. Druzy gemstones are usually found with very fine crystals that have been cut and processed with the matrix rock still attached. Examples of fine druzy gems include the iridescent rainbow pyrite, azurite druzy and uvarovite garnet druzy.
For geodes and crystal clusters and plates, the quartz family is one of the most popular groups, offering a variety of crystals and colors. Banded agate, onyx, amethyst and citrine are the most common quartz members offered as crystals in geodes or plates. Gemstone slices are also very popular for gemstone collectors and for those who believe in the powers of metaphysical alternative healing and medicinal therapeutic use. Tourmaline slices are one of the most popular gemstones for this style of gem cut, especially bicolor and multicolor tourmaline. This is because the slice-cut style is designed to best showcase the unique color-zoning commonly found with tourmaline. Banded agate, onyx, fluorite and other patterned gems are also often cut into slices. Multicolor translucent to opaque gemstone types are perfect for slicing for the same reason as tourmaline, as the slice-cut is designed to showcase interesting color zones, patterns and banding exceptionally well.

I have used gemselect several times over the past 10 years. I go to no other likeness for my stone needs.
When buying high-price items - like gems - it can be scary you are being scammed. GemSelect has no hidden strings. I tested this by purchasing very small, but they have won me over. Their prices are upfront and the quality is as expected. They also package their gems well, and ship incredibly quickly. Their website is easy to use, and they have quick customer service. Best eWholesaler.
I was looking for very specific loose gems for my collection and some loose gems to add to a piece of jewelry I want to have made and Gem Select had everything I was looking for and the selection and price ranges were outstanding. I will absolutely purchase from this vendor again and often. I am so very pleased with the items I received.
I checked reviews throughout the internet and was thoroughly impressed with the positive experiences of others. I’m constantly worried about purchasing fake stones. The many satisfied customers have given me confidence in what I’m purchasing.
