by The Jewel Creation Jewelry Making
The moment we see a beautiful gemstone or bead, we all get awestruck. Those pretty and stunning colorful stones are so fascinating that we wish to own a collection consisting of all the gorgeous beads and gemstones. If you ever visit a gemstone beads wholesale market, then you can come across several precious and semi-precious stones that are worth buying and adding to your collection. There is no denying the fact that they are the most sought-after gems, whether you these stones for jewelry making or as a healing element. However, in spite of its popularity, many of us are not familiar with all the essential properties and features of these semi-precious beads. This often leads us making a wrong purchasing decision and spending our money in wrong direction. So, if you are someone who is fond of these natural stones but have insufficient knowledge about it, then here are some important points that can make you familiar with them. Have a look:


The Mineral compound known for its beauty and toughness is called gemstones. You can find varied types of these stones, including diamonds, rubies, pyrite, emeralds, turquoise, etc., available in several colors. There are synthetic, natural, imitation and composite stones that you can opt from and their value is determined based on various factors.

As we said that some gemstones are valued more than others and there are various reasons for this valuation. If that particular stone is of a rare type, more beautiful than others or currently in trend, then it tends to have a higher value in the market. You can clearly notice that above-mentioned factors are highly variable. For example, amethyst was considered a precious stone until its deposits were discovered in Brazil and after that, they were categorized as semi-precious stones.

Next, let’s talk about natural stones which are nature’s gift to us and are mined from Earth. They are usually regarded as expensive gemstones which may not be the case every time as price can vary according to quality, desirability, and availability. The quality is determined according to the color, and brilliance. However, they are treated to enhance their beauty through heat and radiation. Moreover, while visiting any gemstone beads wholesale dealers, you can notice that some of them use oil and wax for inclusion, mainly in rubies and emeralds.

In case you have money constraint, these treated stones are good option for you. You can buy these stones for jewelry making or as a gift for your friend or family members. But, recently there has been a debate where some dealers claimed that bracketing these stones as treated and untreated is misleading as all of them are enhanced to a certain degree.

These were some important points that would help you garner knowledge about precious and semi-precious stones. We hope that these basic guidelines will help you make your purchasing decision easy and convenient.
