Gems can also be described as small wonders of the natural world as they are created from the intense pressure in rocks and mountains, attained by mining or found in river beds. It is the chemistry and temperature which are the deciding factors in how a gemstone’s colour turns out. This is also why a certain gemstone can span a whole range of different colours. The magical part about gemstones are that they all have their own character. They are also exceptionally varied and you can find gemstones in every shade imaginable. Most gemstones have inclusions that affect the colour and can range from fully transparent to opaque. In jewellery, making gemstones are often cut into facets or cabochon depending on the structure, density and colour of the gemstone, as well as the wearers’ or jewellery designer’s personal preferences.
