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.
Gem Selects is a great place to buy loose gems and seems to have a wide selection of sizes, shapes, and color as well as reasonable prices. Though I only dabble in making earrings this is my purchase from here and I love the pieces I have bought - 6 pairs of various gems. I am sure I'll be back.
