Wonderful things Wednesday - Holiday gift guide: Precious & Semi-precious stones

We all love jewelry. Jewelry has been worn by humans since prehistoric times. Beautiful stones were taken from nature, then cut, polished and used to enhance a lovely metal necklace or a ring.

Since ancient Greeks people started to divide stones for precious and semi-precious. In modern classification, the precious stones are diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires. A large amount of the stones are in the other part, semi-precious. The most important in this group are: amethyst, lapis-lazuli, turquoise, aquamarine, topaz, moonstone, peridot, opal, tourmaline, zircon, chrysoberyl and alexandrite. These classifications are based mostly on demand and value of the stones in a commercial world.

The world of gems is colorful and intriguing and everyone chooses a right stone to suit his own style and personality. Jewelry pieces with a nice stone can be a lovely thoughtful gift for the people you love!
