Gemstones are so fascinating! Their colors,
properties, myths, and legends are diverse and fascinating. Folklore
about stones has been revered and honored for centuries in all cultures.
The information presented on these pages was compiled from a wide
variety of rock, gem and lapidary books and from information gathered
on the internet.
Because so many people are interested in folklore, myth,
legend and healing properties of gems, some of those legends
and myths are included on the specific gemstone description pages.
