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.

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.
