Gems are the wonders of nature. They are created from the intense pressure underneath the Earth's crust, attained by mining or found in river beds. Chemistry and temperature are the determining factors in gemstone colours, explaining why a single kind of gemstone can span a range of different colours.
Each gemstone has unique characteristics. Composition, colour, transparency, inner structure and optical effects distinguish them from each other.
Gemstones are most often cut into beautiful faceted cuts or cabochons, depending on what is most suited for the gemstone
