Lol, I love how they show a double handful of these. Realize that what you will be getting is only a couple of smallish "gems" that will weigh around three grams, or a tenth of an ounce..

15 carats isn't much, and the gems will be cappy quality. Go on ebay you can probably find the same crap for the same price, and pick your own colors.

Real gemstones, which these are even though they are not precious stones, cannot easily have holes drilled in them without cracking. In any event, doing this would ruin the sparkle from the light bouncing around and refracting inside. However you can buy cheap settings for them on ebay, but you won't know what sizes you need until you get your gemstones. I actually disagree with some of the other posts, it takes effort for any type of stone to be cut into gemstones, and $5 for cut gemstones really isn't bad. If you look on ebay, you won't find much cheaper, so I would say it is worth it. You are paying for the time in cutting the stones, not the rareness of the material.

I love how they show some really nice opals and tourmalines though neither is included on the list of possible kinds of stones included...
