A gemstone is a piece of mineral crystal that is cut and polished into a specific shape. They are most commonly used to make jewelry. The most valuable crystals are formed in the earth's crust under high pressures and heat brought to the surface by volcanic or seismic activity. Each gemstone has a unique chemical composition that affects the way it absorbs and reflects light.
HARDNESS OF STONES
The hardness of the stone is the only factor that determines the durability of the gems, so it is important to know that some gems are denser than others. Carat weight is an important quality of valuables. Hardness indicates the stone’s resistance to scratches and abrasions or how the surface of the gem will respond to contact with a sharp tip.
