A gemstone is a piece of mineral, crystalline rock, or other organic material that is cut and polished, typically used for making jewelry. They vary in brilliance, color, clarity, hardness, and durability and display varying degrees of rarity, beauty, and desirability.
Gemstones are typically categorized as either precious, or semi precious. Precious gemstones are more commonly used in gemstone jewelry, including diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and sapphires. While all other gemstones fall into the semi precious category, they can still be valued greater than precious gemstones. Gemstones are further classified by Mohs scale of mineral hardness which measures a mineralís hardness (or scratch resistance) on a scale of 1 to 10, talc being 1 and diamond being the hardest (most scratch resistant) at 10.
Among our vast list of gemstones is amethyst, quartz, hematite, agate, lapis, onyx, citrine, rhodonite, peridot, carnelian, moonstone, ruby, garnet, topaz, turquoise, emerald, sapphire, malachite, tiger eye, coral, jade, opal, and many more.
In addition to being prized for their beauty, gemstone jewelry is also believed to have special powers and medicinal properties. So instead of popping an ibuprofen, some in the past (and even today!) will simply sport natural gemstone jewelry featuring jasper or other strong gemstones. Whether or not the claims can be substantiated, itís nice to know that there is a possibility that there are other benefits to wearing gorgeous gemstone jewelry!
