Organic Gemstones

July 6, 2015

What makes a gemstone? To be considered a gem, a substance has to be beautiful, usually in terms of its color and the way it reflects light. It also has to be rare and durable. Gems are either minerals, which have a regular internal structure and fixed chemical composition, or organics, which are produced by plants and animals. Carved fossils are considered organic gemstones. Come see, you’ll be surprised!
