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.

I am so pleased with the gems I purchased. I will recommend you to all my friends
I love GemSelect! Every stone that I ever purchased has been carefully packaged, and sometimes comes with origin info. The stone I just ordered is for my engagement ring, because my Fiance is making my ring! I am so amazed with the selection that this site has, and I am so impressed with the prices.
i saw a program on the science channel about varieties of fluorite - a special on John 'something' from perhaps wales and varieties of colors... and i was chatting w/ friend who sent me link to your site
