What really is a Gemstone?
[gallery ids="9021"] There are many minerals from beautiful crystals, but the most valued of all are gemstones. Uncut gems are often fairly ordinary looking. It's only when they are cut in a stylish form, finished, polished and made into pieces of jewelry that they become noticed. Gems have been divided into precious and semi-precious classes and classified into different varieties, species, and groups. They come in an array of colors, shapes, sizes and are gathered from all corners of the world. These properties make each and every gem special and unique.
