Axinite Gems

About Axinite, What Is Axinite 


The name axinite reminds you more of an axe rather than a gem. The interesting thing is that axinite crystals in their raw form have a shape that resembles the tip of an axe. The Greek word 'axina' means axe and the resemblence of the gem to the tip of an axe gives it the name 'axinite'. The rather low availability of axinite has meant that very few people know of this gem. Fine crystals that are sufficiently large to set in jewelry are even rarer. The terms 'limited availability' or 'hard to find' have been misused in the world of gems. Any gem provider including the big players on T.V label a gem as 'rare' if they want to sell it and, they want to sell everything!

The color of axinite gems can be brown, blackish brown, greyish or sometimes blue. Axinite with a brownish grey color can resemble smoky quartz, it is often mistaken for smoky quartz too. It is ofcourse many times rarer than smoky quartz. Axinite has a hardness of 7 which makes it suitable for most jewelry applications. However the low availability and the limitation of small sizes, makes it difficult to create large gem stone design ideas for the gem. As expected of most rare gems, axinite is not cheap and can be classified as being in the higher price range. Axinite is sometimes mistaken for quartz, interestingly it has a similar hardness rating as quartz. The truth is that Axinite is not quartz, even though some colors of this stone can be similar to smoky quartz.

Most people who know of axinite stones prefer to keep them as collectors items rather than, to set them in jewelry that will be worn frequently. Tanzania and Russia are often listed as the locations in which Axinite gemstones are mined. There was a place in Pakistan where axinite was found, much of that output was not transparent and was quite milky and included. At one point of time, miners ventured deeper into the earth and did start bringing up some rather transparent and fine axinite crystals. The exploration stopped abruptly as the Pakistan government started implementing it's anti-terror strategy, the mining area was known to be a terrorists hideout.

If you do manage to lay your hands on a few pieces of axinite gem stones, make sure that they are genuine. Do not go overboard on the price and make up your mind to buy some only if, within your capacity or budget. Most axinite gem stones are cut to save on rough material loss, calibrated sizes and nice uniform shapes will surely not be found in large numbers.

Kaisilver can custom cut all gems in the shape, size and quantity that you need. This is infact possible for all gem stones and not just axinite loose gems. We welcome even the smallest order for loose gemstones, even as small as a single piece. You can order just the loose gems or request for a complete gold or silver gem stone jewel to be made according to your design or ours.

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 sales@kaisilver.com 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.
