Review This Product
some didn't have "stars"1/4 to 1/3 of the stones didn't have any visible stars that I could see. Only a few had stars that were aligned to the center of the stone; most were only visible on the edges, probably not well cut by the lapidaries. Overall not very impressed, sent back for refund June 10, 2014

Very disappointedThis is the only purchase that I have been disappointed in. I would send them back, but they are not worth an addition $6.99 to return it. I could not find one star. June 10, 2014

Should have read the reviewsI jumped on this parcel when I saw it on TV. The host said they had great stars. :/ Even in different light sources, I could not see even 1 star in any of the stones. Rather there are blobs of asterism. They are sapphires however so will probably set the larger 1 in a ring setting. I would send them back but for the cost of shipping here and back, I might as well keep them. Disappointed there are no stars but they are pretty stones. Very small with the largest one (only 1) being 6x8. June 03, 2014

Going BackOf the handful of stones we got not ONE of them has the 'star'. Most were really small and some were actually chipped or looked broken. Sad because we were really looking forward to this parcel. February 08, 2014

VERY DISAPPOINTEDI thought, "How Neat! Black Star Sapphires." What a disappointment. I received 27 stones, ranging from 9mm to 3mm, all very nice and shiny, but, NO stars on any of them. Eight of these stones were chipped, several with large chips on the backs and two with chips on the sides. I kept them because I couldn't spend more to ship them back for the price that I paid.

Barely see the starsI don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I can barely see the stars... if at all. Even without actually seeing the stars, these are beautiful stones. I have a nice mix of sizes and shapes and the color is beautiful. The surface is nice and shimmery, but maybe I don't have the right lighting source for the stars. August 19, 2013

Very Good AsterisimI purchased two parcels and received a very even mix of shapes. Although all of the rounds are 4mm or a little less, these are quite pretty stones that are suitable for many craft project type jewelry applications. There are even three larger stones that will go into my stone collection. June 26, 2013

BUYER BEWARE - Small & chipped - lousy stones!I saw these on "Late Night Rocks" with Cheryl as the host. Cheryl said that her stones had lots of helix in them. I did not have a single one with an asterism. Star sapphires are supposed to contain intersecting needle-like inclusions that cause the appearance of a six-rayed star shaped pattern. The only lines in mine were cracks, internal or external. Almost every stone was also chipped. I didn't have a single star, even after looking at every one with a flashlight beam. My parcel only had 2 "large" stones that were 6mm x 5mm - one oval and one teardrop. The oval one was half clear gray and I could read through it to the paper beneath it. Maybe 5 were 3.5mm - 4mm, and the rest were smaller than 3mm. Many of the stones were totally round, not flat on the back - not mountable. There weren't even 2 that were alike to use for earrings. I was so disgusted with them that I packaged them and returned them to the Post Office in less than an hour. It bugs me that I spent $7.52 for origional S&H, and then another $5 to return them. I just wasn't going to let JTV keep the $19.99 purchase price. I have NEVER rated a purchase this bad, but had to try to save others the disgust and anger I had after getting these stones.
