Top 10 Most Beautiful Gemstones

Most beautiful gemstones / precious stones / jewels.

The Top Ten

1 Diamond

Come on girls, emerald over diamond? Who's a girls best friend again?

Diamonds have more marketing. Diamonds have to be enhanced or heated to bring out sparkle and a rainbow of colors. Sphalerite, demantoid garnet and zircon have it all NATURALLY. Put a yellow diamond next to Sphalerite, and the latter wins. Demantoid outclasses green diamonds. I'm afraid you are a victim of marketing where diamonds are concerned.

Last time I checked, Diamonds could come in ANY color. And the most expensive, valuable and beautiful gem in the world? The PINK STAR DIAMOND. Not some Emerald or Garnet.

As a gem collector with specimens of bixbite, black opals, Tanzanite, benitoite,and others...
DIAMONDS ARE A WORTHLESS SCAM. Don't buy them! Go for the other stones mentioned... there MUCH rarer.

Girls like Diamonds maybe, but boys prefer emeralds, rubies and sapphires. They are colorful.

Emerald? Really?

Emerald is my most favorite gem

Diamonds are for girls,Emerald is for guys! The green is so beautiful colour and that's why emerald is so awesome! Diamond is also great

3 Sapphire

Sapphires are beautiful. I love them because of their blue tint, speaking of blue have you ever seen a blue cat before? I have not, I mean I have seen blue (sad) cats before and they are so cute. there is this beautiful cat named bluestar and she is almost blue but she has the most beautiful blue eyes and I first thought that she was really blue. I also thought that my birthstone was blue but it is orange. blue is my favorite color. anyway, back to the bluestar theory bluestar is a very smart and nice cat and she is regal and strong, but this evil cat tigerclaw tried to kill her which was sad but this good cat named fireheart saved her from being killed but she went crazy forever.

Sapphires are royal blue, made to adorn the fingers of royalty. Honestly, emeralds over sapphires, much less garnets? People are crazy. Sapphires are sleek, sophisticated, and regal.

Bluestar is a good cat...(spoiler alert) too bad she was killed by a dog pack trying to save Fireheart's life. I like sapphires they're really pretty.

WHAT sapphire isn't on the top, I mean come on how could no one like deep blue stones that remind you so much of the calm sea. I LOVE THEM.

4 Opal

Opal in my birthstone and is like a rainbow on your finger. No two opals have the same pattern and come in a variety of colors like blue opal, fire opal, purple opal...

Particularly Israeli Opals, like seriously, look them up.

Opals are so pretty! Just search opal on google image and you'll see the most beautiful images on the internet just after kittens

Opal is the best nothing else comes near

5 Garnet

Pfft! Girls best friend. I'm a girl and I don't fall for diamonds. Do you really think that white, clear, diamond's are what I need? Nope. I'm feisty as fire, AND I'm a Tom boy. So garnets are red, fire! And not too... stereotypical.
I GOT A GARNET BEFORE BUT I LOST IT AND I'M SAD AND I DIDN'T EVEN TUMBLE IT SO THAT MY FAMILY COULD LOOK AT IT well I guess it's okay. My brother would easily break it anyway...

Hey! Garnet is pretty and tough, in the real world and in Steven Universe. They use it for industrial stuff! How can you not love Garnet?!?! Comes in different shades, most expensive is Blue Garnet, which is over 1 million for a carat? I don't know, but yea.

GARNET IT AWESOME (watch steven universe thigh my opinion is not based off that) it's is a beautiful dark red and sparkles in sunlight

Garnet is really pretty I'm the lucky one I have it as my birth stone

Diamonds a girl's best friend? Honey I don't want no clear ball, no I want something that stands out, not to fancy but still pretty, like me! I have 2 pairs of ruby earings and I love them!

13 Paraiba Tourmaline

This gem is so beautiful. It is 1,000 times rarer than diamonds and emeralds. It is neon blueish green and glows in the dark. It looks even brighter in dim lights than down lighting (the kind of lighting they use in Jewelry stores).
Check it out!

Awesome gem that has the most amazing color of the Caribbean sea. You have to see it to believe it. It's that mesmerizing.

Why is this gem not more well known? It's the most gorgeous color ever!

Beautiful. period.

It looks lovely! I never knew that this was an actual gemstone!

The different colors within the depths are lovely. - Coatsy

15 Lapis Lazuli

She is my FAVORITE character in Steven Universe, and therefore she is my favorite gem.

I feel so bad for lapis because it stinks when being cut and polished.

16 Turquoise

Along with lapis lazuli, turquoise is my favourite gem, and my birth stone for December. I love it's rich, blue-green shade buy sadly is not very popular even though it isn't nearly as expensive as some other gems.

Turquoise is nicer than topaz I think

17 Tanzanite
18 Crystal

Crystals? Like the ones with the starbits inside in Super Mario Galaxy? Those things are absolutely beautiful! They're so pretty, I hate having to break the things in SMG, but I love them so much! Apparently, when meteors strike (in SMG) they trap things inside these crystals. Take the beginning for example, when Bowser's Airships shoot meteors at the Toads at the Star Festival, note how the meteors trap them inside crystals. My question is if meteors would trap things inside seemingly electrified crystals in real life. I don't know about the crystals being electrified, but they say that the prehistoric meteor that killed the dinosaurs froze the Earth... Noneoftheless, Crystals are absolutely beautiful!

Diamonds, Emeralds, Rubbies, and Sapphires are too overrated! Crystals are never perfect, because they are all in different, unique shapes and the shapes are always random! Purple is my favorite color, and I consider Amethyst Crystals to be breathtakingly beautiful!

Have you seen any photos taken in Skaftafell National Park, Iceland? The crystal caves are breathtaking in the photos, despite that they are made out of ice! However, if you watch videos of the cave on Youtube, they don't look near as beautiful as they do in the photos! Make sure you look at the photos of the crystal caves in Iceland's Skaftafell National Park before you vote!

19 Moonstone

YAY! My birthstone! It's so pretty, and the colours reflect all along the stone. It is a bluish colour with different shadings.

Love it! Beautiful colors, and it stands out from most other kinds of gemstones

It's GORGEOUS. It speaks to me on a spiritual level.

A beautiful black gemstone with even better white stripes. - Swellow

37 Cubic Zirconia

This gemstone gets a lot of hate but if you think about it every one has some type of cubic Jewelry it is definitely not the most valuable but it is the most used gem in Jewelry. So I guess it needs to be on this list some where.
