As an avid gemstone collector, and jewelry maker, I am of course fascinated by gemstones. There are so many different gemstones out there, some maybe some of us have never heard of. So lets put our heads together and see how many we can name. I will start with my all time 3 favorites Color Change Diaspore sometimes called Zultanite, Alexandrite, Blue Diamond.

I am not sure if I have carnelian or not. I have some that look like it, but without having it tested I cant say for sure. I dont think I have ever heard of angelite.

OOh I love mexican fire opal, jelly opal too. Swiss blue topaz is another favorite. Topaz is such a versatile stone, and they can make so many different colors with it.

I love jade. There is just something about the stone, that I like. Purple jade, and pink jade are my favorites.
