It is commonly believed that precious and semi-precious gemstones, crystals, and minerals have metaphysical symbolism, healing properties, special powers, and spiritual meaning.
Semi-precious gemstone jewellery is as versatile as it is beautiful.
Semi Precious Gemstones are available in a wide variety of cuts and colours.
Mostly, precious gemstones were considered to be Diamond, Ruby, Emerald, and Sapphire. However, the notion of what was considered “semi precious” was different from one culture to the other, as well as the generally accepted knowledge when it comes to determination and classification of the semi precious stones.
Traditionally, this is a vast category that comprises almost every other stone apart from Diamond, Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire, Opal and Pearls.
There are some 130 types of stones, minerals and crystals that can be considered gemstones of semi precious quality.
This means that in answering the question “what are semi precious stones” we can say that this category comprises at the very least the following crystals and minerals: amethyst, rock crystal, carnelian, rose quartz, topaz, aquamarine, agate, tiger’s eye, tourmaline, aventurine, moonstone, jasper, citrine, ametrine, jade, howlite, hematite, malachite, obsidian, turquoise. There are, of course, many other types of crystals and stones not listed here.
Even some stones that do not (strictly speaking) belong to the group of minerals, like amber, onyx and jet stone, can be considered semi precious stones when making jewellery.
