Golden topaz combines excellent hardness with superb brilliance and stunning color at an affordable price. Choose from a selection of golden and imperial topaz gemstones of various shapes and sizes at GemSelect, including rutile topaz and imperial topaz. Rutile topaz is colorless topaz with golden inclusions, which is sometimes referred to as "Venus hair" or "golden threads". These inclusions are actually limonite rather than rutile, but the name "rutile topaz" has stuck. The inclusions may be sparse or abundant and give the gemstone an interesting and unique appearance. Imperial topaz is the most rare and valuable topaz variety. It gets its name from the Russian Tsars of the 17th century because the tsars claimed exclusive rights to the pink topaz gemstones that were mined in Russia. Traditionally, imperial topaz was orange with red dichroism, but the definition of imperial topaz has now widened to include yellow, pink, red, lavender-pink and peach-pink topaz.

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.
