Re: What is your favorite semi-precious gemstone?

@itiswhatitis Actually some gem websites refused to use the semi-precious term. All of them are precious. A good quality alexandrite cost more than the famous four "precious gemstones".

 @Songbird : Creepy looking?  Perhaps you have never seen  Blue and pinks opals from Peru, and blue opal from Oregon, USA and fire opals. Those opals are gorgeous.

Re: What is your favorite semi-precious gemstone?

My wedding set is an alexandrite in yellow gold with a diamond on each side. Now they are are made with black rhodium which I do not like. And yes it is very pricey, I love it but now I would never spend that much if I had to do it again.

It's hard for me to pick a favorite, but I suppose it would be Amethyst since it's my birthstone.  Used to you could only find one shade, but now there are so many shade variations out there that I've enjoyed collecting them.

Re: What is your favorite semi-precious gemstone?

Sky blue topez and watermelon tourmaline are my favorites.

 

  • i fist saw watermelon tourmaline is a small shop jewelry shop in Bar Harbor Maine and fell in love.  I'd love to get a ring, I have earrings and a pendant.

 

But, I never met a gem stone that I didn't like.

@Fluffy -2

Do you like madeira citrine?  That's my favorite citrine color.  Not  crazy about the yellow/brownish color of citrine.

I  prefer true vivid golden color of Citrine, not too dark and not too pale...
