Moldavite Moldavite is a bottle-green to brown-green gemstone belonging to the tektite group. It has garnered attention due to its unusual origin - it is thought to have formed from condensed rock vapors after a meteorite impact. You will sometimes see moldavite touted as "the only known extraterrestrial gemstone on Earth" or "the gemstone from the stars", a claim which is not entirely justified.
Moldavite gets its name from the town of Moldauthein in the Czech Republic where it was first found. There are currently four moldavite mines operating in the Czech Republic, but it is estimated that the supply of gem-grade material will be exhausted in about ten years' time.

Easy to see the gemstones you are buying, easy to see prices and shipping.
I love GemSelect, personally. I browse their site almost daily to see all the new stones available. Their selection is pretty amazing. The quality isn't always the highest and the cut of the stones isn't always perfect. But for the price, and if you look hard enough, you can find a real gem, so to speak.
I would recommend to a friend because of the quality of the products purchased. The gemstone quality is very high and the gems purchased are beautiful. Any friends interested in having custom jewelry made would definitely be recommended to the site. Also, every shipment is handled with care and I am very pleased with that.
