Whoever said Diamonds are a girls (or boys) best friend?

There are some amazing crystals out there and amethysts with a dark rich purple can be quite attractive. I always had a strong interest in Ceylon sapphires, with the deep blues.

What's your favorite mineral/crystal/stone when it comes to value, such as what a diamond may mean to many, but which for some of us isn't so meaningful?

Oh, it is hard to pick just one. They all have their own beauty and carry their own personality and energy, some needed to sit with for a short time and some longer term. As I learn more about each type of stone—whether it be reading about them, finding them myself, or listening to others describe their experiences—I appreciate them more.

I am partial to larimar and moldavite, a water stone and a star crystal.

Love blue sapphires, emeralds, amethyst, and turquoise. I have quite a few necklaces of different stones and find I often select one to wear based on the situation. Somehow, my hands just go to the right ones. I cannot wear heavy earrings, so I have mostly studs and small dangles. There was a time when I liked diamonds, but I've lost interest in them.

Oh so many!

Danburite comes rapidly to mind.
I've relatively recently read that the combination of the 'golden' agni danburite (which I've recently had access to) combined with Himalayan ice quartz has a 'Christ consiousness' type of vibe. All I know is that I love it. For now I tend to hold the ice quartz portion of the combo in my hand and am hoping to combine the two into a pair of earrings<3

Also, recently, I've come to appreciate the variety and beauty of clean, cool calcites which come in so many colours of the rainbow.
Very often I'm drawn to 'cleaners', like the zeolites (apophyllite, heulandite, scolcite...).
Then there's other incredible beauties like astrophyllite, seraphinite, moldavite and other 'starry stones'.
And how could you not appreciate the beauty of a deep rich purple amethyst (or sugilite, chaorite, tanzanite, iolite, stichtite and other 'violet flame' stones)? Or of a beautiful quartz? Smoky quartz? Or the deep blacks like shaman stones, onyx, tourmaline? Then there's laboradorite and its endless variety of sheens.

I really could go on and on! Just place me at a rock pile and I tend to be very happy.

I’m not interested in diamonds, and haven’t got a favourite really, do love Amethyst, but they are all so beautiful.
I particularly like Turquoise, but that’s probably because I love the colour.

I think diamonds can be a boy's best friend, too. At one time in the past, I had successfully convinced Brian of this fact, but it's been a very long time... :cool:
