For centuries, we have been fascinated with gemstones and their different qualities. There seems to be a favorite stone for everyone. Some stones are thought to have special powers or attributes that we can absorb while others have very personal meanings. There are those precious few that are so bold and beautiful that we stand in awe of their uniqueness. It may be due to their size, color or simply their meaning and lore but each one has something special. Covered in this page are some of the famous gemstones I found most interesting.
