I’ve always had a soft spot for gemstones. I was introduced to the word gemology around the age of 11, and I think it was through this activity that I learned more about the different types of gems and the names of the stones.
The word gemology comes from the Greek gemos (meaning “a jewel”). Gemology is a branch of gem collecting, and in its broadest sense is the study of all types of gemstones. It includes the study of crystals, gems, and all other gemstone-related materials.
Gemology is a large field that is both a scientific and social term. It is very broad, and includes a wide range of study that covers the entire spectrum of gemstone and mineral collecting. It is a relatively new field of study, so there are many different types of people studying it. I know, I know, in the past there were more than 10,000 different kinds of gemstones, and we still have over 1,000 of them (I checked).
If you think of gemology as a “miner’s field,” it is definitely the study of the study of minerals. The materials that are studied vary by type, and by the individual who studies it. But there are three basic types of gemological work, each of which have distinct characteristics: mineralogy, gemology, and gemology.
The first type of gemologist is the one who studies the gemology of specific types of gems. The most specialized of these are the gemologists who study the various types of diamonds. Diamonds are the only gems that are considered to have a distinct shape and color, so it is the gemologists who are doing the study of the shape and coloring of the gemstones.
The second type of gemologist is the one who does the gemological study of the specific types of gemstones. These are called gemologists because they study all types of gemstones. They do so by studying the different shapes and colors of the stones and then trying to predict the effects of various gemstones of those shapes and colors.
The third type of gemologist is the one who does the actual gemological study of the stones. These are called gemologists because they actually study the stones. They actually analyze the stones and try to figure out what’s going on in the gem, so they can make informed decisions about the colors and shapes of the stones.
The first stone, shown here, is called the Blue Rose. This is a perfect red gemstone, meaning it is of a color that comes from the color of the stone itself, but is also a perfect color for a variety of other colors. This is also referred to as a “perfect” stone because the color comes from the color of the gem itself and is not influenced by surrounding colors or light.
It’s important to note that the gem above is a purple diamond, not a purple-colored gemstone. This is because a purple diamond is a color that is very close to purple. It is, however, very different than the color purple and is therefore a very rare gemstone.
A purple diamond is a very rare gemstone, and one that isn’t easy to find. In fact, finding a purple diamond might be one of the most difficult things to do in the modern world. Fortunately, there are some people who are willing to go out of their way to help you find a perfect purple diamond.
