GEMSTONES AND THEIR INFLUENCE


Amethyst, Citrine, Pink Quartz, Natural Gemstone Bracelets

Gemstones have always fascinated mankind. In former centuries they were reserved for the ruling classes only. Today everybody can afford beautiful stones for jewelry and adornment. Precious stones for sale, especially if one includes those so called costume or fashion jewelry, are so numerous that is hardly possible for the layman to survey or judge what is available.

Gems have intrigued humans for at least 10,000 years. The first known, used for making jewelry, include Amethyst, Rock Crystal, Amber, Garnet, Jade, Jasper, Coral, Lapis Lazuli, Pearl, Serpentine, Emerald, and Turquoise. These stones reserved for the wealthy and served as status symbols. Rulers scaled documents with their jewel-encrusted seals. Such treasures can now be admired in many museums and treasure-vaults.
