@nova: I knew that was a topic like this one before. Talking about gemstones NEVER becomes old. The Mineral Kingdom is full of gems  that we never seen before. It's not the classic  Diamond, Sapphire, Ruby and Emerald, it's also the quartz family, the beryl family, garnets that are not red, opaque stones like Turquoise, Lapis lazuli, Howlite, Malachite, jasper, Jade ( both kinds)etc. The rare Benitonite, Grandidierite, etc. and organic gem: Amber, coral, pearl. There is a site called classic gems. In there you can find information about each gem.
