I believe this market could grow very large in the wake of cryptocurrencies as gold and silver become less popular. I believe birthstones will begin to increase in popularity for jewelry and meaningful trinkets. I think this website should consider another metric that gauges how "raw" the mineral/gem/stone/etc. is-- how processed it has been. Some people may want to get the raw material from a specific location, know its history, and contract someone to refine it into a personal keepsake.
I love Gemselect and have ordered from them many times. I have always been extremely happy with my purchases. In fact, I got a shipment this week and I decided to buy almost the identical set that I received this week, and that's what this purchase is!
I was looking for a tourmaline but although there were numerous beautiful stones to choose from, there was none that fit my need. Then I thought of some other beautiful stones I love and sunstone came to mind. I so thrilled when I was able to find the most gorgeous sunstone and with the exact specifications of my need. GemSelect makes it extremely easy to find the exact stone your looking for quickly and check out is just as easy to go through. I would (and have) definitely recommend GemSelect because of the large selection of stones, ease of use, and fast affordable shipping.
