Undrilled Gemstone Spheres
Spherical gems are a rare find, but they are popular for several uses. Many use spherical gemstones as 'crystal balls', often for metaphysical and alternative healing. Gemstone balls or spherical crystals have been used for since ancient times. The sphere is a universal symbol for unity, infinity and completeness. Unlike the focused energy of other gemstone shapes, spherical gems or ball-shaped gemstones emit energy equally in all directions. Spherical gemstones are often confused with round-shaped gems. Round gemstones are traditionally cut with a pointed pavilion or bottom, or for cabochons, the bottoms may be completely flat. Spherical or ball-shaped gemstones are fully-rounded, which means that unlike round-cut gems, they are symmetrical from all angles. Some gemstone spheres are facet-cut, while maintaining the full-round shape, while others may be completely smooth, lacking any facets whatsoever. Pearls are a good example of smooth spheres. Drilled and half- drilled sphere-shaped gemstones are often traded as beads, but for natural gems, sphere-shaped beads are actually quite rare.

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.
