▌What Are The Gemstones?


Gemstones are those natural stones that are very precious and comparably rare in this world. In that sense, Diamond is considered to be the most valuable gemstone in this world. Aside from the Diamond, the Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Pearl (not, strictly speaking, a gemstone), and Opal have also been considered to be precious. Up to the discoveries of bulk Amethyst in Brazil in the 19th century, Amethyst was considered a precious stone as well, going back to ancient Greece. Even in the last century certain stones such as Aquamarine, Peridot and Cat's Eye (Cymophane) have been popular and hence been regarded as precious. Today, all these precious natural stones are being made artificially in laboratories and they are sold in the market with the name of "Synthetic Gemstones" at affordable prices. From rock formations to their chemical compounds, scientifically there's nothing difference between Natural Gemstones and Synthetic Gemstones. However, astrologers always give advice to buy the genuine natural gemstones for getting the best result. But we will also recommend you to give a try with those affordable Synthetic Gemstones available in the market.
