This gemstone is a natural 10.03mm round concave cut greenish-yellow Quartz. The gemstone weight is 3.51ct and it was mined in Brazil. The clarity of this yellow Quartz is graded as VVS, which stands for "Very, Very Slightly Included" under 10 x magnification. This gemstone has been irradiated (very low levels) to produce its current color; this is an approved and safe treatment. The item is sold as seen in the picture: 1 piece yellow Quartz for the price listed.
The clarity grading of this gemstone is VVS, one of the top gradings on the clarity scale.
The gemstone comes in calibrated size of 10 mm which is preferred for standard-sized jewelry settings.
The size of the gemstone is good for a center-stone in a pendant.
I bought my stones and designed my jewelry myself, starting with my stone selection. They are my grandchildren birth stones that I will pass to them later. They are part of me then I will be part of them. Something I created with love for them.
I had a limited budget and wanted a star ruby. GemSelect offered small, but pretty stones at a very reasonable price. I've always been satisfied with my GemSelect purchases, although there are also eBay vendors I use for less expensive gems. Their selection of more expensive stones, like rubies, is very limited, however.
I believe this market could grow very large in the wake of cryptocurrencies as gold and silver become less popular. I believe birthstones will begin to increase in popularity for jewelry and meaningful trinkets. I think this website should consider another metric that gauges how "raw" the mineral/gem/stone/etc. is-- how processed it has been. Some people may want to get the raw material from a specific location, know its history, and contract someone to refine it into a personal keepsake.
GemSelect is a great, and easy to navigate website in where one can order gems. GemSelect gives a great variety of prices; so that literally anyone can start purchasing at whatever price-range they choose. I would highly recommend GemSelect to anyone interested in valuables such as gems.
