Correct me if I'm wrong, but I am pretty sure that this is the rarest gemstone. - Ashes
This diamond is one of the rarest gemstones in the world. - PhoenixAura81
I wonder how it formed - LightningStrike
The way they formed is unique and very interesting (at least to me). Maybe I should make a list about that. - Metal_Treasure
Red is the rarest color of diamonds. They’re so rare that only 20 or 30 red diamonds have ever been discovered.
In general, red is one of the rarest colors in the gems world and pure red is exceptionally rare. Most red gems are orange-red, pink-red or purplish-red. - Metal_Treasure
That looks beautiful! - PhoenixAura81
That particular shade of electric turquoise blue is very rare. Paraiba Tourmaline was only discovered in the 1980’s but quickly became one of the most precious and valuable gems in the world.
It may have some greenish shades. - Metal_Treasure
What a beautiful colour! I’d love to see that in real life. - DaringXx
So rare - 80sGreatestOffice
Sapphire occurs in several colors but this particular pink-orange color of sapphire is really very rare. - Metal_Treasure
Red is the rarest color in the beryl family (other famous beryls are Emerald, Aquamarine, Morganite, and Goshenite, but the red beryl is the rarest) - Metal_Treasure
The 2nd rarest color of diamonds after red. - Metal_Treasure
It seems that some 'ordinary' diamonds are photographed in a way to look blueish. - Alkadikce
Beautiful - The_gEEK_GamEr9
@Alkadikce - no, the diamond you see in the image isn't "ordinary" at all 😊.
It's the famous "The Heart of Eternity Diamond" - a very rare deep blue diamond. One of the most famous individual gems of all time.
Estimated value: at least USD 16 million - Metal_Treasure
I wasn't talking about the one on the picture. I meant that I see a lot of pictures of diamonds with blueish glare, but they are far not as colorful as this one. - Alkadikce
Topaz with a naturally good blue color is very rare. But today blue topaz is pretty common due to man’s ability to enhance its color. There are gem 'treatments" that can even change the color of a gem.
Bright blue topaz is usually called Swiss Blue topaz, dark blue topaz - London Blue topaz. - Metal_Treasure
Star Sapphires of all colors are very rare - only 3 out of 100 sapphires have stars. Then imagine how rare would be a black sapphire (black is a rare sapphire color) that has a star. - Metal_Treasure
That looks AMAZING! - PhoenixAura81
In the image you see one of the most famous individual pink diamonds - it was originally named Steinmetz Pink, then sold and renamed to Pink Star, and sold again and renamed to Pink Dream. - Metal_Treasure
Is rose quartz! see what I did there (¬‿¬) - BreakFastBeast2005
Spinel commonly occurs in red-ish hues - Metal_Treasure
