Gemselect has good prices and many different varieties. I like to collect untreated natural loose gemstones and this is the only website I purchase from. All gemstones are highly detailed about information, state whether they are treated or not, county of origin. I highly recommend them.
I'd say that the information in the descriptions is rather sparse, and the state of the gems/their color treatment or lack thereof is vague and unimpressive. Nevertheless they've got a great variety of offerings. The only area I can see that they could improve is in turquoise, which could include unstabilised cabs or at least specific names relative to their mines as opposed to appearances. Thanks
