Website is easy to navigate and the search options are great for narrowing down the choices closest to what I'm looking for. I love that all the gems are photographed individually, it helps to imagine the setting I'll have designed for each stone.
If you want a gem that you can trust to not be treated, or if it is it's disclosed this is the place! There's something for everybody. I really like knowing that the picture of the item is the one I'm buying, not a sample or stock photo. If you make jewelry, buy gems here! You can even buy a gem and have it set by a jeweler. Again, they have an amazing inventory, and prices are more than fair. You won't be disappointed! I just wish they sold uncut gems. Sometimes I just want a specimen in the crystal form. I'm surprised they had no quartz from Arkansas, but they have a great selection of anything I've ever looked for.
I wanted to buy some gems because I think they'd be cool to have and this seemed like the best website to buy them from. The website is a bit old looking and could use an update to the user interface but otherwise it's great.
