Gemstones have played various roles in the myths and legends of human cultures throughout history. Some tell a story or are believed to have special powers, but all of them share a common beauty. Each gemstone is unique with a special color, birthplace and story. Gemstones come in every color of the rainbow and are gathered from all corners of the world, with each colored gemstone possessing a unique creation of beautiful color. A gemstone (also called a gem, fine gem, jewel, preciousstone, or semi-precious stone) is a piece of mineral crystal which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry or other adornments. Rarity is another characteristic that lends value to a gemstone. The traditional list of gemstones that are considered precious stones are Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. Most common gemstones are Alexandrite, Amethyst, Aquamarine, Citrine, Garnet, Lapis, Lazuli, Moonstone, Morganite, Opal, Paraiba, Pearls, Peridot, Rubellite, Spinel, Tanzanite, Topaz, Tourmaline, Turquoise and Zircon.
