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.
Gemstone cabochons are available in pretty much every color of the rainbow and may be star gems, cat's eye gems, transparent, translucent or opaque. Cabochons make excellent necklace pendants, rings, bracelets, earrings and more.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
