    As for Diamonds...I never really cared for them to much either....until I put a big huge heart shaped diamond the size of a freakin small jaw breaker on my finger...it was a $30,000 ring. I felt like I had super powers....OMG. I turned in to a different person with that damn ring on my finger....
    Hahaha that must of been some experience.

    I used to be really into researching the healing properties of them.
    I'm interested enough to look into it a little.

    No, I wish I could though.

    The closest experience I have to that is when i was a little kid and I had a birthday party at this place called the Volcano, where it was like an indoor cave with real rocks and you could pick at them to find shiny rocks. (it was just quartz and fool's gold, mostly, but when you're 5 there's no difference)

    I hate diamonds and pearls, btw (overrated, although pearls can look really, really nice...I just really hate diamonds I guess)


    My favorite stones are my birthstone (Aquamarine...I used to hate it until I actually had the real thing, it's just so cool because when you put it in water it becomes invisible) Topaz, Spessartine Garnet, Sapphires, and this particular rock:

    Some people think its BS, but I dont think all of it is . Think about the power of quarts crystal that emits energy to move time in watches...and the power of the moon that moves the ocean. Okay I sound really hippy and new age right now lol...

The iridescence of precious opal is caused by the way the structure, or regular arrangement of tiny silica spheres, diffracts light.

    Opal is a stone of inspiration which enhances the imagination and creativity as well. It helps one release inhibitions and enhances the memory. Opal is also said to be a very spiritual stone, and can help one be "invisible" in situations where they don't care to be noticed. It has been known to bring happy dreams, and also to ease the process of change. Opal is a silicate, containing water, correlating with our emotions. Clarifies by amplifying and mirroring feelings, buried emotions, desires (including love and passion). With this comes less inhibition, more spontaneity, free visualization, clearer imagination, and more vivid dreams.

    Opals are sweet.

    That's so awesome Sparrow, thanks for sharing.
    10 white jade circles in a ring and with a citrine ring, that's outstanding. What do they mean to you?

    Ah I hope to look into this like none before.
    For now I'm checking out the many varieties of incredible gemstones that are, I think there is something to the mystique crystals and gemstones have too.

    Sapphires







    Sapphire is the second hardest crystal that Mother Earth has given us. Second only to the Diamond. Many of the large Sapphire deposits are literally the remains of metamorphic or igneous veins of granite and marble weathered away into stream beds and mountain valleys. Sapphire being stronger than granite or marble survive the weathering. All gem quality corundum that is not red (ruby) is called sapphire, although the name is commonly associated with the color blue.

    This gemstone used during meditation can help you find your hidden potential, and sharpen the vision of your life's work, it will help you to clear a mental path so you can begin your journey. Sapphires can help work with you to achieve your material dreams and desires, as well as sustain your wealth once it is acquired. The gem will also be of assistance in keeping a balanced perspective, allowing you to better organize your thought processes, ensuring continued success as your material situation evolves. It will also promote fair play and loyalty amongst partners and employees, as well as bring about correct conclusions to potentially unjust situations, if you are in the right.

    Topaz







    The name topaz comes from the Sanskrit and means fire. Topaz occurs in a range of different colors, a deep golden yellow and pink topaz are, by far, the most valuable. Blue and green stone are also quite popular in modern terms. Natural pink stones are rare, most are simply heat treated yellow stones. Much colorless topaz is irradiated and heat treated to create a range of blues, some almost indistinguishable from aquamarine when seen with the naked eye.

    Topaz is said to enhance one's spiritual potential. Legend tells us that it is used to increase intelligence and creativity, impart wisdom which will in turn lead to wealth. The stone of "true love and success in all endeavors", it can be used to promote understanding, compassion, kindness and empathy. It opens the hearts of those who have closed them while at the same time protecting the openhearted from too much pain.
