Spodumene Spodumene is a rock-forming mineral in granites and pegmatites that bear other lithium minerals. Spodumene is a relatively new mineral to science, being discovered in the last three centuries and gem varieties have only been discovered in the last 120 years. Spodumene occurs in white, gray, pink, lilac and green. It has a vitreous luster and a hardness rating of 6.5-7.5. Spodumene is strongly pleochroic and therefore a gem cutter must take care to orient the stone in the best position for the deepest color. Spodumene's cleavage, parting and fracture also make it a challenge for any gem cutter.

I found a beautiful rose quartz stone in the right size for the right price.
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.
It was super easy to browse all the gemstones and find exactly what you wanted. The prices were great and the checkout process was smooth. Seems like a great site, will definitely come back to find more in the future.
