Gemstone is desirable for its beauty
A gemstone is the naturally occurring crystalline form of a mineral. Gemstone is desirable for its beauty. It is valuable in rarity. A gemstone or gem also called a precious or semi-precious stone is a piece of attractive mineral, when cut and polished it is used to make jewellery or other adornments. Although some gemstone varieties have been treasured since before history began and others were only discovered recently.
Gemstone is durable enough to be enjoyed for generations. However certain rocks, such as lapis-lazuli and organic materials are not minerals, but are still used for jewelry, and are therefore often considered to be gemstones as well. Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their luster or other physical properties that have aesthetic value. Rarity is another characteristic that lends value to a gemstone.
