Agate

Agate is named after the river Achates (now known as the Dirillo river) on Sicily (Italy), where the stone was found in ancient times.

Agate is a variety of chalcedony and is formed in concentric layers inside a host rock. Several varieties are named after the visual effect of the structure or the place where it is found, such as Banded Agate, Moss Agate, Rainbow Agate, Botswana Agate or Indian Agate. Onyx is very similar to Agate, but Onyx has straight bands instead of curved ones, and is mostly known when black or banded black and white.

Properties

Agate exists in almost all colours, although green and blue are not very common. It is a quite hard gemstone (7-8 on Mohs scale). Agate is transparant or opaque.

Amethyst

The name "Amethyst" derives from the Greek "amethystos", which means "not drunk". In ancient times it was believed to prevent one from getting drunk.

Amethyst is a Quartz variety and considered to be the most precious kind of Quartz. The structure however, differs strongly from other quartz kinds and is typical for the specific place where it is found. The typical purple colour is caused by iron and natural radiation. With heat treatment, Amethyst can be turned into Citrine or into the green coloured Prasiolite, also known as Green Amethyst, which is a more common, but actually incorrect name.

Properties

The colour of Amethyst varies between light purple-ish to deep purple, possibly with hues of dark red or blue. The stone may be transparant to translucent. It is a relatively hard stone (7 on Mohs scale). Prolonged exposure to UV radiation (sunlight, discotheque blacklight, etc.) may fade the colour and should be avoided.

Carnelian

The word "Carnelian" derives from the medieval Latin word "corneolus" and the Latin "cornum", which is the cornel cherry. Tumbled carnelian looks like the translucent red fruits of the cornel cherry. Other sources refer the name to the Latin word "carnis", which means "flesh", since the rough Carnelian look very much like animal meat, raw or cooked. In ancient times, Carnelian was the typical gem stone of the noble class. Noble class people were often buried with Carnelian. During their life, Carnelian was used for seal rings, because the hot wax used to seal important letters and documents didn't stick to it.

Carnelian is a variety of Chalcedony Quartz, but is only called Carnelian if the colour is solid or nearly solid. Very similar to Carnelian (and often used interchangeably) is Sard, although Sard is commonly used for the darker and harder varieties.

Coral

It is unsure where the name "Coral" comes from. Possibly from the Greek "korallion", which is the skeletton of the coral animals, or from the Greek "kura-halos", meaning "mermaid", or from the Hebrew "goral", referring to the coral branches which were used in oracles in the Mediterranean area. Coral has been used as gem since prehistoric times, 1.8 million years ago. It was used by warriors as ornaments on their weapons and given to children to protect them against harm. It was believed that the planet Mars consisted of Coral.

Coral is an organic substance, created by living organisms, and -surprisingly- chemically similar to pearl.

Fluorite

The name "Fluorite" refers to the Latin verb "fluor", which means "to flow", as in water in a stream. The phenomenon of fluorescence is named after Fluorite, as some Fluorite has strong fluorescent properties. Fluorite used to be called "fluorspar", but now this is only used as chemical reference. The ancient Romans believed that drinking alcoholic beverages from a fluorite mug would prevent drunkenness.

Often, Fluorite is fluorescent, which means it reacts with a 'glow' when lit by ultraviolet light. It also has thermoluminescent properties, so it will radiate light when heated. Fluorite is used as lens material in specific high-end optical instruments. Fluorite can occur in large pieces, the largest piece found was a cube of more than six feet and weighing approximately 35,000 lbs.

Properties

Fluorite exists in almost all colours, colourless and white, although colourless, purple, blue, green and yellow are most common. Often the stone has a variety of colours within one piece. Fluorite is transparant and is the defining mineral for hardness 4 on Mohs scale. Prolonged exposure to UV radiation (sunlight, discotheque blacklight, etc.) may fade the colour and should be avoided. Also contact with water should better be avoided.

The name Lapis Lazuli comes from the Latin word "lapis", meaning "stone" and the Persian word "la-žaward", meaning "blue".

It has been used in the funeral mask of Tutankhamun. Cleopatra used powdered Lapis Lazuli as eyeshadow.

Actually, Lapis Lazuli is not a mineral, but a rock containing several different minerals: mostly the blue Lazurite, with some white Calcite and sparkly Pyrite, also called "Fools Gold", for its visual similarity with gold.

Properties

Lapis Lazuli is a quite soft stone, 5 to 5.5 on Mohs scale. The colour is blue, up to a purplish hue, with white and gold-coloured stripes. Lapis Lazuli is always opaque.

Moonstone

Moonstone is given its name for the visual effect caused by light diffraction, resembling the light of the moon. The Romans believed it existed of solidified rays of the moon. Moonstone, in Hindi called "Candra Kanta", is a sacred stone in India and a traditional wedding gift.

Moonstone is part of the Feldspar family and actually composed of two species of that family: Orthoclase and Albite. The light falling inbetween these alternating layers produces the effect called "adularescence", named after Adularia, another word for Orthoclase.

Moonstone is transparent to translucent and the colour varies from colourless to yellow, green, blue, peach/pink, brown or gray. The hardness is medium hard, 6 to 6.5 on Mohs scale. Moonstone is also called "Water Opal" or "Fish Eye". The gem stone which is called "Rainbow Moonstone" is actually colourless to milky white Labradorite with a rainbow coloured sheen.

Onyx

The name Onyx comes from "onyx", the Greek word for claw or nail and fleshtone coloured Onyx could resemble a fingernail. A legend tells that Cupid cut the fingernails of Venus while she slept, leaving the cut nails on the ground. As no part of a heavenly body can die, the gods turned them into stone: Onyx.

Onyx is a Chalcedony variety and differs from Agate with its more straight and parallel instead of chaotic bands. Onyx is formed in the vesicles of lava.

Peridot

It is not sure where the name "Peridot" comes from. Some sources suggest it is an alteration of the Anglo–Norman "pedoretés", a kind of opal. Other sources mention it derives from "faridat", the Arabic word for "gem". And some say it derives from the Greek word "peridona", which means something like "giving plenty". Peridot has been used and valued since antiquity and has been mined for almost 4,000 years. It was jewelry for the Egyptian Pharaohs and a favorite of Cleopatra.

Peridot is a kind of Olivine. The tint and intensity of the colour depends on the amount of iron in its chemical structure. Sometimes, the more yellowish variation of Peridot is called Chrysolite. A very rare kind of almost transparent white Peridot is called Forsterite or Boltonite. Peridot is found in lava and sometimes in meteorites.

Properties

Peridot is one of the few gem stones that occur in only one colour, green. However, the colour may vary from yellowish to brownish green. Olive green coloured Peridot is considered most valuable. Peridot is always transparent, but may have some milky inclusions. The hardness of Peridot varies between 6.5 and 7 on Mohs scale.

Turquoise

The name "Turquoise" refers to the route the gemstone travelled, from Persia where it was mined, through Turkey, to Europe. It was called "Turquies" ("Turkish"), as it came from Turkey. Turquoise has been mined for thousands of years and is probably one of the first stones to be used in jewelry. The oldest pieces of Turquoise were found on the mummy of Queen Zar, ruler of Egypt around 5500 BC. In history, Turquoise has always been connected to friendship and as a gift it was a declaration of sincerity and affection.

The natural creation of Turquoise is not a simple process. It needs copper as a base (hence its blue colour) and vulcanic host rocks coming to the surface as magma, triggering feldspar to release aluminum near rocks rich of phosphurus. On top of that, this combination has to stay dry and under high pressure for millions of years.

Properties

The colour of Turquoise can vary between blue-green to the typical turquoise kind of blue. The stone is always opaque and its hardness is 5-7 on Mohs scale, but a hardness of 7 is rare. Turquoise is not only relatively soft, but also a porous stone and should therefore be handled gently and carefully. Cleaning should only be done with luke warm water.
