Scissor Cut Gemstones
Scissor-cut gemstones are given triangular facets that are shaped like opposing blades. These facets appear like the blades of scissors, hence the name, 'scissor cut'. Scissor-cut gemstones reflect more light than ordinary step cuts, which maximize a gemstone's color. This means that scissor-cut gems have more sparkle than a basic baguette or square gem. Dark and opaque gemstones are often given a scissor cut to bring out the sparkle of the gem.
GemSelect has a wide range of scissor-cut gems, including scissor-cut topaz, scissor-cut amethyst, smoky quartz, tourmaline, sapphire and more. Choose from a wide range of scissor-cut colored stones in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes and gem types. From this page, you can use the search filters at the top to find scissor-cut single gems, matched pairs and gem lots.

In my 20's I imported gemstones. I decided to try it again, for gifts. I found GemSelect; studied their website; talked with them and decided to make a purchase.
I would recommend GEMSELECT based upon the variety of gems. Gems that i didn't expect to even be apart of the selection and it gave me more options. Options in which played a key role in finding the right gem. Its always good to have options especially when trying to formulate a good piece of art work that has uniqueness. Which ultimately captures costumers eye appeal.
Gemselect is o.k the prices are pretty good, but the shipping prices really suck, one time I order from them and order got lost or never came, but they were good about fixing the problem and rectifying the situation, the stones and good, and the ones that come in the mail, look just as pictured on the website, or all it's not bad and its were I go to get my stones.
