Stone Talk - a Gemstone List


Pictures and descriptions of favorite gemstones and fossils.  Their stories, their myths and folk lore, their healing properties and their history.

See cabochons and rough / slab for some materials that I use in my jewelry designs. 

What I hope you gain from looking through these pages of gems, stones and fossils is a general knowledge of their colors, wearability, and care, plus a little folk lore and some stories concerningtheir historical value and use.
