Gemstones - Precious Minerals for Jewellery Making
The history of jewellery is almost as old as that of human beings, as it was one of the early customs to adorn the body with small accessories. In addition to precious metals such as gold and silver, precious stones have been very popular for producing necklaces, rings, earrings or bracelets since ancient times. Rubies, sapphires, emeralds, opal, onyx, agate, and many more have been used to make jewellery. Among the most sought-after and, at the same time, most expensive gemstones are certainly diamonds but jewellery made of opal, amber, and moonstone is very popular among ladies and gentlemen.
Gemstones: Jewellery Stones with Special Qualities
It is difficult to distinguish between the terms gemstone, precious stone, or semi-precious stone in common usage. Sometimes all minerals used for jewellery production are considered gemstones, at other times, gemstones are generally equated with precious stones. There are fixed criteria that apply to gemstones: They should have a certain hardness, be as rare as possible, and must not contain any foreign substances. Furthermore, gemstones must not be artificially produced. After all, their natural structures, shapes and colours are what make them so unique, and the jewellery in which they have been used are truly unique pieces. But gemstones are not only inspiring because of their appearance; many of them also carry special meanings. For example, some are considered protective stones against negative influences, lucky charms or symbolise harmony or passion. In addition, some gemstones are even said to have a healing effect or a positive influence on health. Some gemstones are said to promote balance, give peace, strengthen self-confidence, or relieve stress.
