Gemstone Wholesalers

I want to start a business making gemstone jewelry, but am very aware there are a lot of sellers who falsely advertise beads (especially on Etsy). I know there are companies like Fire Mountain Gemstones, but who are the other trusted gemstone wholesalers? Other than asking the seller about the origin of the beads, how else can I confirm that semi-precious gemstone beads are real vs. glass before purchasing?

Before purchasing, you can’t.
To feel somewhat secure about purchases, there are fraud laws in the USA so stick to companies in the US
Furthermore, if you go with a reputable wholesale company, they’re not going to destroy their business and livelihood by taking chances and substituting semi-precious stones with glass.

I noticed a lot of bead sellers on Etsy buy from Intrinsic! Thank you for this, this is so helpful!!
