Gemstones

Gemstone refers to mineral, rock or organic material used for personal adornment or for decorative purposes. A gem is the cut and polished finished product. Most gemstones are minerals; about 100 of the 3800 mineral species known have gem varieties, but only about 25 are commonly marketed.

The essential attributes of gemstones are beauty, derived from colour, brilliance, pattern, texture or light-reflecting qualities; durability i.e. sufficient hardness to resist abrasion, breakage or decomposition; and rarity, a quality that enhances their desirability and value. Diamonds possesses these attributes to an exceptional degree, surpassing all known gemstones.
