The World Of Precious & Semi-precious Gems
By definition, gems are minerals that, from an aesthetic point of view, look very beautiful or decorative, and are used as stones in jewelry pieces.
According to their aesthetic qualities, they are divided into precious stones and semi-precious stones. They can be of mineral origin (inorganic), or of organic origins (fossils) such as amber, or pearls and corals.
The gemstone is considered a rare, pure mineral of great beauty, with a relatively high hardness on the Mohs scale. The classification of minerals in this category is frequently of a subjective nature and is determined by the culture or by the epoch in which the value of the mineral is appreciated.
The most famous precious stones are diamond, ruby, sapphire, and emerald. The semi-precious stones are garnets, amethysts, topaz, tourmaline followed by a long list composed of amber, coral, onyx, malachite, lapis lazuli, opal, quartz, turquoise, and so on.
Renowned fine jewelry companies use these precious stones endowed with color and brilliance to give their collections an infinite rainbow of shades.
