A gemstone cabochon is cut with a highly polished rounded top with no faceting and a flat or slightly domed base. A cabochon may be cut into any shape, though oval is the most frequent. The term, "cabochon" comes from the French "caboche", meaning small dome. Some gem types are almost always cut "en cabochon", including opal, jade, turquoise, onyx, moonstone, and star sapphire. Cabochon is often shortened to "cab" by gem enthusiasts. Cabochons make excellent necklace pendants, rings, bracelets, earrings and more.
Emerald is the most precious stone in the beryl group. The wonderful green color of emerald is unparalleled in the gem world. Emerald, by definition, is a medium or darker green to blue green beryl, in which the green color is derived from impurities of chromium, vanadium, or a combination of both. The most popular and valuable color is a slightly bluish green in a medium dark tone with strong to vivid saturation. Clarity is important, but inclusions are tolerated more in emerald than virtually any other gem. Unlike other beryl gems, emeralds often contain inclusions and other flaws. These flaws are not looked on as negative aspects for emerald like they would be for other gemstones. Indeed, these flaws are considered part of the character of the stone and are used to assure the purchaser of a natural stone.

Site was recommended to me by my gemology professor. Based on what I’ve seen gemselect offers good quality stones for a large range of prices
Ive been shopping here many times before, so navigating around was easy. I am accustomed to the quality of the items and that's the main reason I come here. When I need non heated stones I know I can count on GemSelect being authentic. I trust them because I double check their quality. And never had problems with them. And yes I do recommend shopping there to some of my clients who are "less knowledgable" of industry. GemSelect is so user friendly they're great for beginner gem shoppers!
Well fell in love with the site right away ordered two many items I knew I would return a few. Decided I wanted to invest in a sapphire emerald or ruby after more research. The diamonds that I received we just stuck together just ordered one more I will have 10 in all diamonds two yellow six white. I'm so very happy I didn't know what I was going to keep and definitely diamonds were winner.
