Minerals and mining have been part of the human story since it began. Mother nature is also great at giving us a million different varieties of everything.
Here is a list of common terms and words used in the crystal and gemstone world.
This list is by no means complete, and I will be adding to it from time to time. If there is a word or label or description of a crystal or gemstone that you are not sure of, pop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll get back to you with more info if I can.
