Jungle-Gems the only source for Amazon Opal
We have been in the mineral business for the last twenty years and have found no one to be more honest than Jungle-Gems. They have the fairest prices to be found and excellent quality.
Their personalized service makes them a joy to do business with. Doing business with Jungle-Gems is more like working with a trusted friend, you can depend on their word. They are by far the most reputible company we have dealt with.

"Great guys to work with. Jungle-Gems will find the gem or mineral you want then work with you and the source for the best price. Short of buying in multi-ton quantities, you can't do better!"
Working with Jungle-Gems was an experience that I will never forget. My boyfriend asked me to get married and I wanted a very special ring the second time around. I had always wanted a gemstone - 3 stone ring (two diamonds and a larger center stone). I already had a beautiful sapphire so I decided on an emerald stone, however, I wanted a 3ct.oval cut. I checked out my local and some larger jewelry stores for my gemstone but the emerald was so outrageously expensive that I would never ask my fiancé to buy my ring at that price. Most of the emeralds were only 1 ct. stones also-far too small for my hands.
So, I decided to check the internet and see if I could find an emerald wholesale. I ran across several good sites but when I found Kirk at Jungle Gems I hit pay dirt as the old saying says. He was very patient and we established a trust over the weeks that we worked together. We communicated almost daily. We soon had an internet friendship and I felt comfortable working with him. Even my fiancé said that I should not be trading with someone especially out of the United States, but somehow, the way we wrote back and forth to each other, I just kept thinking, surely to goodness he would not rob me from my dream of a beautiful stone. I was right, Kirk "Tomas" Bond, after many attempts finally found THE STONE I wanted and even though I had to pay "up front" for the stone, he traced the delivery of the stone to my office on a daily basis since it had to go through customs.
He is a good person to work with and his partner Jeff is good also. They listened to what I wanted and kept trying even though their commission was not that large compared to the value of the stone and the inflated comparable US prices. I am thinking about asking him to help me replace an aquamarine gemstone also, so the relationship continues. Good luck and I hope you will be as pleased as I have been. Do not give up -- Tomas is you man and he will help you find what you want!!

Buying from the guys at Jungle-Gems was a very pleasant experience. The personal service that I received from everyone was very much appreciated (and unexpected due to my past experiences with "e-suppliers"). My parcel arrived well packaged and was exactly as described. I will definitely come back the next time I have a special request, and I recommend them to anyone else looking for excellent gems and minerals at really good prices.

I purchased several emerald preforms from Jungle Gems in February of 2002. I was and am very impressed with the color, the price and the weight I was able to retain. Straight from Brazil! Thank you Mr. Bond!
