Gallery of Gemstones

Welcome to the gallery of gemstones, an evolving collection of precious and semi-precious gemstones. If you are looking to commission a piece of custom made jewellery, this can be an inspirational place to start.

I’ve endeavoured to provide details of gemstone formation, characteristics and optical phenomena. The information has been gathered from a variety of sources and includes some of the associated folklore. Whilst there is no scientifically proven evidence to support many of the health-giving claims, I enjoy reading about the traditional beliefs and history and hope you will, too.
