Danburite Gem Stones

Once Upon A Time From Danbury, Connecticut

If you had to trace the origins of Danburite, you would be digging deep under the city of Danbury In Connecticut. This was where Danburite was first found, the gemstone name is ofcourse got from the name of the city. Much of the jewelry and gemstone industry today relies on danburite sources in Mexico and Madagascar. There is some mention of Burma and Japan as a source for danburite, but no commercial quantities can be claimed from these sources. For those of you who want to know something about the history of danburite, the gem stone was first found in Danbury in the year 1839 by Charles Upham Shephard.

Not many people have heard of Danburite, it is probably the rather non-fashionable name that has kept it out of the mainstream!. For those knowledgeable few who know about this gem stone, most will vouch that all danburite is white in color. The fact is that, the gem stone can also be found in pale yellor or pink. Not much of colored danburite makes the rounds in the gem stone markets, but some gem manufacturers in Thailand and even India have managed to procure danburite rough in colors other than white.

Let us talk about the durability and other physical properties of danburite. The Mohs scale that rates gem hardness on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the hardest, gives danburite an impressive rating of 7 to 7.5. This is more than a mere number as it implies that danburite is very suitable for all types of jewelry. It is sometimes quite amazing how other gems with much lower strength and durability have made their name in the gemstone world. Danburite is modestly priced, you would value the gem stone based on color, clarity and size. Beyond those features, shape, size and type of cut would also influence the price point of the gem stone.

Something about the Danburite color options and pricing needs to be understood. We just mentioned that white danburite is just one of the colors in which this gem stone is found, you could also have light tan, pale pink or even yellow danburite. Since danburite in other colors is not very common, prices of colored danburite are higher than that of white danburite. However there is an important exception that needs to be considered when talking about colored and white danburite gemstones. If you had an extremely pale yellow or pink color for a danburite gem, the stone could be worth less than an eye clean and well cut white danburite stone. The idea is that, too little color is more like a disturbance than a unique feature of the stone.

An interesting thing about danburite rough is that, much of it is not really cut into cut and polished gems. Gem collectors treat it as a collectors treasure and line it up with other colorless stones like quartz, topaz and even goshenite (white beryl). When it comes to cut and polished loose danburite gemstones, you should give importance to clarity and cut rather than go for sheer size. The sturdy nature of the gemstone makes it suitable for danburite rings, danburite pendants and earrings and even danburite bracelets.

While Directstones does not claim any super natural powers for any of the gem stones that we offer, it is true that many people buy gems due to traditions and beliefs. Wearing a danburite gemstone is believed to stimulate spiritual awareness and make possible communications with the outer world (angels). Believers in crystal theraphy claim that danburite activates the crown chakra related to the energy center at the top of the head. Please remember that these are mere beliefs and we do not claim that they have been tested or proved to be accurate.  

We would like to mention something about danburite gem stone jewelry. The few jewelers who have heard about danburite and have access to this gorgeous gem, often recommend it for earrings and pendants. This does not mean that danburite is not durable enough for rings. The point is that, it is conventionally believed that colorless or pale colored gems are better noticed when worn a bit higher, on the ears or around the neck. However you can get a stunning danburite ring custom made with a well cut eye clean danburite gem stone. Cutting the stone with a fancy faceted pattern and fairly deep shape, can give an almost hypnotic display or color reflections when seen from the top.

Directstones, custom cuts all gems including danburite in the shape and size that you require. Our rough gems are sourced directly from mines across the globe, we will gladly fulfill orders for volumes ranging from 1 single piece to as many thousands as you require. Emphasis is given to quality and we do not take part in the craze to sell tonnes of stones through close out or blow out deals. We can also custom make any jewel for you with the gem stone of your choice. Both gold and sterling silver jewelry is made with the same quality of design, gemstones and craftsmanship.


Who Is Kaisilver?

Having established itself as the world's leading online custom jewelry provider, Kaisilver now extends it's merchandise line to include gems. While there is no shortage of gem stones in the global market, reliable sources for the retail buyer requirements are not many. Most retail gem dealers work with limited inventories, this reduces buyer options. Another problem with these small dealers is the lack of information and reliability when it comes to gem authenticity and value for money. Kaisilver with it's wide network of gemstone mining and manufacturing resources, is the best source for gems of all types, shapes, sizes and cuts. With a support team that is compromised of jewelry and gemstone experts, the advice and suggestions made by the team relate to your requirements and not to fixed sales targets. The website shows a small sampling of the gems that we offer. You can infact request for just about any gem on the globe. All gems are sourced directly from the source, closely inspected and then custom cut by our expert cutters. With a buyer base that includes fashion models, government officials, casino and resort owners, lawyers, financial experts, students and professors, doctors and surgeons, sportsmen and newsreaders we have become the preferred choice for quality gems and jewelry. By cutting out middlemen commissions and multiple agents, we provide great value for your money. Our large online operation does not stop us from welcoming even the smallest order. Gold and silver jewelry is custom made with equal attention to quality, material and craftsmanship. You can choose from our designs or send us detailed for the style and design that you need.


How To Order?

The process to order gems and custom jewelry at Kaisilver is similar. We do not expect you to make a rush purchase. We do wish that you take the time to discuss your requirements with our experts. They will be in a position to provide constructive suggestions that will guide you to make well informed buying decisions. Email all your requirements to provide as much inputs as possible to help us make relevant suggestions. For example if you are keen on getting a green gemstone but, are not particular about it being an emerald mention this in your email. Our gem experts might suggest a green tourmaline or even a peridot instead of an emerald. This suggestion would reduce our profit margins but will give you a gem that, is much cheaper and even more durable as compared to an emerald. When it comes to payments we offer some very suitable options. Paypal is the preferred form of payment, it is fair to the buyer and seller. The buyer when using paypal never needs to reveal credit card of bank information to the seller. We also accept direct bank transfers but prefer to do this on a case by case basis. When it comes to online transactions these days, both buyer and seller are afraid of frauds. It is quite possible that you do not feel comfortable working with us at Kaisilver. We sometimes feel a little uncomfortable with certain transactions too and prefer to keep away from them. There have always been fears of processing payments through Western Union money transfers. With the latest fraud reports, fake sellers and even fake buyers have been pulling off many online frauds using this mode of payment. At the same time we do understand that armed forces from the U.S who are stationed in various global positions sometimes have no other mode of payment besides Western Union. We therefore accept this mode of payment but at the same time, request you to avoid this mode if you do not feel comfortable using it. Shipping is done through FEDEX and you can expect a production lead time of around 4 to 5 weeks from the date of order confirmation and receipt of payment. Every jewel is fully custom made and requires the complete attention and concentration of highly skilled craftsmen. When it comes to gems, we could provide faster lead times and this can be discussed for each specific order.
