  • TOP 10 Rarest and Most Expensive Gemstones Ever

    TOP 10 Rarest and Most Expensive Gemstones Ever 1. Jadeite – more than $3 million per carat This gemstone is actually a pyroxene mineral, usually of apple green, emerald green, bluish green or leek green in color. There have also been some that are either greenish white or white with some green spots. Jadeites are colorless in the thin section of the stone. The more intense the green, the more expensive the stone will get. The Chinese, however, also value the white jadeite with green spots. A deep blue-green jadeite that emits a translucent hue has also been discovered in recent times in Guatemala. While it is considered valuable because of historical reasons as the Mesoamerican Olmec used it, the rarity of this specific kind of jadeite has yet to be established. Once the Guatemalans star...

  • top 10 most expensive Gemstones in the world

    Precious stones have always fascinated men and women throughout the history. In some ancient cultures, several gemstones were considered as magical artifacts that contain healing properties as well as other powers like the amulets and charms of old. In the time of kings and queens, gems were used for more than just adornments. In many cases, precious stones were seen as a symbol of lineage and as a sign for the right to rule, such as the gems set in crowns and scepters. While magic, sorcery, and nobility are not as associated with diamonds and rubies as it was back then, it can’t be denied that precious stones remain a part of the fabric of human society. Precious stones have remained just that all through the years – precious. And the same can probably be said of them in the distant futu...

  • Top Five Most Precious Gemstones In The World

    1. Jadeite Jadeite is one of the minerals recognized as the gemstone jade. The other is nephrite. Jadeite from the Motagua Valley, Guatemala, was used by the Olmec and Maya peoples, as well as the indigenous peoples of Costa Rica. Typically, the most highly valued colors of jadeite are the most intensely green, translucent varieties, though traditionally white has been considered the most valuable of the jades by the Chinese, known for their carefully crafted jade pieces. Other colors, like "Olmec blue" jade, which is characterized by its deep blue-green, translucent hue with white flecking, are also becoming more highly valued because of its unique beauty and historical use by the Mesoamerican Olmec and also in Costa Rica. 2.Red Diamonds The Moussaieff Red Diamond (formerly known as the...

Note: just because it’s found on earth, doesn’t mean it’s from it! 10. Tanzanite 9. Grandiderite 8. Black Opal 7. Taaffeite 6. Alexandrite 5. Musgravite 4. Painite 3. Serendibite 2. Red Diamonds, Pink Star Diamond 1. Jadeite Poudretteite This mineral was first found during the mid-1960’s in the Poudrette quarry of Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec. However, it wasn’t until 1987 that the poudretteite was fully recognized as a new mineral. Even then, this mineral wasn't described in depth until 2003. As stated by several different sources, it’s believed that only a relative few will ever come into contact with this mineral and let alone ever even hear it mentioned. Grandidierite This is considered to be an extremely rare mineral and gem that was first seen in 1902 on the Island of Madagascar. It was named in honor after the French explorer Alfred Grandidier who once studied the island’s natural history. Grandidierite comes in a bluish-green color and is located almost entirely in Madagascar, although, there was a clean faceted sample that was found in Sri Lanka. Grandidierite is also pleochroic, which means it's able to absorb different wavelengths of light differently and that results in different colors, such is the same ability with the gems tanzanite and alexandrite. Painite This gemstone was first discovered back in the 1950’s in Myanmar by a British mineralogist named Arthur C. D. Pain. For the next several decades only two fragments of the hexagonal mineral were known to exist on earth. By the time the year 2005 rolled around, there were still less than 25 discovered pieces of painite and The Guinness Book of World Records had declared it the world's rarest gemstone mineral. However, that was 11 years ago and since then the origin of the original stones has been found, along with two other major locations that have led to the discovery of thousands of small samples of painite fragments. Even so, they’re still considered one of the world’s rarest minerals. Ammolite This rare gemstone can be found mainly in the eastern region of the Rocky Mountains of North America. Ammolite is an opal-like gemstone that is solely made up of the fossilized shells of extinct animals known as ammonites. This makes ammolite one of the few biogenic gemstones that exist, along with pearls and amber. Ammolites weren’t officially recognized as gemstones until 1981 when they were given official status by the World Jewellery Confederation. That’s also the same year that commercial mining for ammolite began. Tanzanite It’s been said that tanzanite is 1,000 times rarer than a diamond, which might as well be the case considering the fact that it can be found almost entirely near the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. This is where the perfect conditions lie in order to form the mineral. Like grandidierite, tanzanite is able to produce striking shifts in color based on the crystal’s orientation and the certain lighting conditions. Caltech's geology division states this is because the color variations are caused by the existence of vanadium ions. Red Diamonds Did you know that diamonds come in a variety of colors? In fact, diamonds can range from being yellow, brown, colorless, blue, green, black, pink, orange, and red. That’s also the same order of how rare each diamond is classified as with yellow being the least and red being the most. Not only that but diamonds are also the hardest natural substances that form here on earth. Just like the colorless diamond, the red diamond is made purely out of carbon, however, what gives the diamond its red color is actually a deformation of their atomic structure that’s known as a “plastic deformation”. The Moussaieff Red is the largest red diamond in the world among the little known other red diamonds that have been discovered.

Even so, they’re still considered one of the world’s rarest minerals. 4. Red Beryl Also known as bixbite, "red emerald", or "scarlet emerald", red beryl was first reported as far back as 1904. Even though its chemical compound is closely similar to that of aquamarines and emeralds, it’s actually considered to be rarer than both of them. What gives the mineral its red color palette is thanks to the presence of ManganeseⅢ+ ions. It can be found in parts of New Mexico and Utah where it’s actually proven to be quite difficult to mine. Because of this, prices for red beryl are known to reach high levels and have even gone on to be around 10,000 per karat for stones. 3.

TOP 10 Rarest and Most Expensive Gemstones Ever 1. Jadeite – more than $3 million per carat This gemstone is actually a pyroxene mineral, usually of apple green, emerald green, bluish green or leek green in color. There have also been some that are either greenish white or white with some green spots. Jadeites are colorless in the thin section of the stone. The more intense the green, the more expensive the stone will get. The Chinese, however, also value the white jadeite with green spots. A deep blue-green jadeite that emits a translucent hue has also been discovered in recent times in Guatemala. While it is considered valuable because of historical reasons as the Mesoamerican Olmec used it, the rarity of this specific kind of jadeite has yet to be established. Once the Guatemalans start actively mining for it and confirms its rarity, the value may increase even more. 2. Red Diamonds – $2 million to 2.5 million per carat This gemstone is very rare. Most of it are actually purplish red, and not crimson or pure red. A mining company located in Australia gets to find only a small number of red diamonds every year. These are then sold at an auction once every couple of years, and you can just imagine the interest, demand and price that the red diamonds command. 3. Serendibite – $1.8 million to 2 million per carat The serendibite gemstone is an extremely rare mineral that bears boron. Only two areas have been known to produce quality serendibite, namely Ratanapura in Sri Lanka and Mogok in northern Burma. Most of the serendibites found are blue green, grayish blue or pale yellow with a white streak. 4. Blue Garnet – $1.5 million per carat There are many kinds of garnet in the market. You can find it in a variety of colors, from black, brown, green, orange, pink, purple, red and yellow. There have even been some that do not have any color. But none can compare to the price of the blue garnet. This gemstone was discovered in Madagascar in the 1990s, though it has since been mined in Russia, the United States and Turkey as well. While it has a blue green shade, the generous amount of vanadium in the stone makes it emit a purplish hue when it is held against incandescent lighting. 5.Grandidierite – $100,000 per carat Alfred Grandidier was a natural historian famed in the archaeology world for his discovery in Madagascar of the skeletons and remains of an elephant bird that weighed half a ton and that has been extinct for thousands of years. He is also famous in the world of gemology for discovering in Sri Lanka a rare stone that transmits blue, green and white light. Initially, they thought it was the gemstone serendibite, but after closer scrutiny, gemologists concluded that it was a totally new stone. It was thereafter named after Grandidier. 6. Painite – $50,000 – 60,000 per carat Discovered in the 1950s by the Englishman Arthur C. Pain, painite is a rare borate material. It has a natural hexagon shape and has an orange-red or brownish-red color. Trace amounts of iron, vanadium and chromium are present in the stone. While it used to be the rarest stone in the world, more have been unearthed and discovered in Burma recently. 7. Musgravite – $35,000 per carat This gemstone is actually a silicate mineral that was first discovered in Australia in an area called Musgrave. While similar minerals have since been unearthed in Madagascar, Greenland and Sri Lanka, it is still considered very rare. There are trace amounts of aluminum, berrylium and magnesium present in the stone. ========================== semi precious stones types of gems gemstones for sale list of gemstones most expensive jewelry jewels and gems most expensive gemstone most expensive stone most expensive mineral most expensive gem most precious stones rarest gem in the world most valuable gemstones rarest diamond in the world most expensive gemstones most expensive rock ========================== Facebook ► https://www.facebook.com/Mega-News-1728374423845386/ Twitter ► https://twitter.com/meganews77 Google+ ► https://plus.google.com/113281215443356264322 Tumblr ► https://meganews77.tumblr.com/ Pinterest ► https://pinterest.com/meganews77/ Reddit ► https://www.reddit.com/user/MegaNews77/ Linkedin ► https://www.linkedin.com/in/mega-news-858b93137 LiveJournal ► http://meganews77.livejournal.com/ Please Like & Subscribe Mega News https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0P4_2nrwEMw2A1TCsfQYdg https://youtu.be/nWUVj-YV4eA

Precious stones have always fascinated men and women throughout the history. In some ancient cultures, several gemstones were considered as magical artifacts that contain healing properties as well as other powers like the amulets and charms of old. In the time of kings and queens, gems were used for more than just adornments. In many cases, precious stones were seen as a symbol of lineage and as a sign for the right to rule, such as the gems set in crowns and scepters. While magic, sorcery, and nobility are not as associated with diamonds and rubies as it was back then, it can’t be denied that precious stones remain a part of the fabric of human society. Precious stones have remained just that all through the years – precious. And the same can probably be said of them in the distant future. Here are the 10 really expensive gems for sale. #10 Tanzanite: $600 – $1,000 per carat #9 Taaffeite: $1,500 – $2,500 per carat #8 Black Opal: $2,355 per carat #7 Benitoite: $3,000 – $4,000 per carat #6 Red Beryl: $10,000 per carat #5 Alexandrite: $12,000 per carat #5 Alexandrite: $12,000 per carat #3 Musgravite: $35,000 per carat #2 Painite: $50,000 – $60,000 per carat #1 Pink Star Diamond: $1.4 Million per carat

1. Jadeite Jadeite is one of the minerals recognized as the gemstone jade. The other is nephrite. Jadeite from the Motagua Valley, Guatemala, was used by the Olmec and Maya peoples, as well as the indigenous peoples of Costa Rica. Typically, the most highly valued colors of jadeite are the most intensely green, translucent varieties, though traditionally white has been considered the most valuable of the jades by the Chinese, known for their carefully crafted jade pieces. Other colors, like "Olmec blue" jade, which is characterized by its deep blue-green, translucent hue with white flecking, are also becoming more highly valued because of its unique beauty and historical use by the Mesoamerican Olmec and also in Costa Rica. 2.Red Diamonds The Moussaieff Red Diamond (formerly known as the Red Shield Diamond) is a diamond measuring 5.11 carats (1.022 g) with a triangular brilliant cut (sometimes called a trillion or a trilliant cut), rated in color as Fancy Red by the Gemological Institute of America. It is the world's largest known red diamond. 3. Serendibite Serendibite is a rare crystallized mineral discovered in Gangapitiya, Sri Lanka in 1902. This translucent compound is composed of the chemical elements calcium, aluminum, magnesium, boron, silicon, and oxygen. It has a grayish blue-green to deep blue, green, black, pale yellow or brown hue. Its current market value is established at $1.8 million to $2 million per carat. 4. Blue Garnet The Blue Garnet is valued at $1.5 million per carat. However, despite the already pricey assessment for such gemstone, it is still in the dribbling interest of the elite. In fact, in 2003, an auction of a 4.2 carat Blue Garnet hit record sales of $6.8 million 5.Black Opal The Black Opal is the rarest and the priciest of all opals. It is currently priced at $2,355 per carat. This gem is not your typical mineral stone, but an unstructured form of silica. It has been desired by royalties not only from the past but even up to the present, because of the majestic beauty it inherently possesses.

Early Persians knew their history could not be manipulated when it is literally set on stone. That is why they have made quite a reputation in history for making reliefs and stone inscriptions.
