Shipping Colored Gemstones

I remember reading something about this subject before, but cannot
locate the … Which companies are safe to use when
shipping colored stones? I know there is at least one company that
x-rays the items and this can cause the stones to change color. Am I
safe using FedEx?

The US Postal System is the only organization currently using x-rays
on packaging. We ship stuff FedEx all the time and have never had a
problem.

I’ve been shipping some things via USPS, and never thought of this
problem. What stones are known to be affected by this treatment?
