A gemstone (gem, stone or semi-precious stone) is a piece of mineral crystal which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry. However, certain rocks (such as lapis lazuli and opal) and occasionally organic materials that are not minerals (such as amber, jet, and pearl) are also used for our jewelry. Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their luster or other physical properties that have aesthetic value.
Gemstones and crystals have healing properties that help to balance the body, mind, and spirit. Healing crystals and gemstones have been used for thousands of years by ancient civilizations; the Egyptians, Aztecs, and others incorporated them into jewelry, cosmetics, decorative statues, amulets, and much more – a testament to their powerful ability to release mental, physical, and spiritual blockages.
