Gemstone Chart

Gemstones are among the most individual of nature’s creations: perfect crystals, with no two stones alike. A gemstone is the naturally occurring crystalline form of a mineral which is desirable for its beauty, valuable in its rarity, and durable enough to be enjoyed for generations. Although some gemstone varieties have been treasured since before history began and others were only discovered recently, all are nature’s gifts to us and our gifts to our children.
