Mineral identification by keyword searching
As colorful as the rainbow and as sparkling as fine leaded crystal, gemstones have captured the imaginations and desires of men and perhaps especially, women, for ages. The pursuit of gems have become the subject of legends, fairy tales, epics, and major motion pictures (" Romancing the Stone ", for one). Today, more fine gemstone specimens are available to the average person than at any time in history.
What makes a gemstone?
Generally speaking, a gemstone is a stone that is beautiful, rare, and durable (resistant to abrasion, fracturing and chemical reactions). Some minerals can be very beautiful, but they may be too soft and will scratch easily (such as the mineral fluorite ). Fluorite is extremely colorful and pretty but has a hardness of only 4 on the Moh's

    These fine faceted naturally brilliant gemstones are rare because of a low yield rate
    We have available a limited inventory of different shapes and sizes of Sunspar, a natural gemstone. Sunspar, which is an excellent brilliant stone replacement for diamonds, is a registered trademark of 'The Executive Gemstone Collection'. Our tailored inventory includes most of the following shapes: round, oval, emerald, pear, trillion, heart, octagon, and marquise. (Not all shapes and sizes are available at all times). We also have a variety of fancy cuts in different sizes and forms. Our intent is to satisfy gem collectors and the manufacturer of of high-end jewelry. These fine faceted naturally brilliant gemstones are rare because of a low yield rate. This is due to the very limited quantity of excellent quality rough materials needed to hand cut the best gem quality finished product for the discriminating collector. To create the best quality for the discriminating collector our stones are individually selected to international high standards. Fine quality faceted stones up to 3 carats are limited, and over 5 carats are extremely hard to keep in our inventory. We wonder what the cost will be to replace our current supply of Sunspar in the future and are quite excited at how much potential it could have to appreciate due to its limited availability today.

    It is referred to as a Spiritual Stone because its color violet is same as that of the crown chakra. Meditation with it helps one in reaching the spiritual aspect of the universe. Polished Point:
    This can be used as one's symbol of psychic healing energy. A focus point for the healing energies to converge giving the possessor expanded healing capability.

    AVENTURINE (Quartz)
    Picture 1

    SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION: Grayish, yellowish, brownish, or green quartz with small platy mica inclusions (hematite or geothite also) is called Aventurine. The hardness is 7 and the streak is white.
    ENVIRONMENT: Quartz is an important rock-forming mineral and developed in many different environments.
    OCCURRENCE: Aventurine is found in Brazil, India and Russia.
    NAME: Unknown.
    LEGEND and LORE: Aventurine was revered by the ancient Tibetans. They used it to represent the "eyes" in sacred statues, thus symbolizing increased divinatory powers.
    MAGICAL PROPERTIES: This stone is considered to be a gambler's talisman. It is said that it will attract money. It is considered a "lucky" stone.
    HEALING: This stone is associated with the Thymus Gland. It has been traditionally used for improving eyesight and healing diseases of the eyes.
    PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I use Aventurine as a Heart Chakra stone, to balance such stones as Rhodonite. In addition, I recommend it to those who are starting out on new paths or adventures because it is protective, but opens the eyes to "new horizons".
    NOTES: The yellow/brown form of Aventurine is from Russia. It is almost impossible to find anymore.

    Natural Gemstones
    A natural gemstone is a mineral, stone, or organic matter that can be cut and polished or otherwise treated for use as jewelry or other ornament. A precious gemstone has beauty, durability, and rarity, whereas a semiprecious gemstone has only one or two of these qualities. A gem is a gemstone that has been cut and polished. Diamond, corundum (ruby and sapphire), beryl (emerald and aquamarine), topaz, and opal are generally classed as precious stones. All other gemstones are usually classed as semiprecious.
