All gemstones are known as precious and semi-precious stones. A skilled lapidarist craft is to cut the crystals into Beads and Cabochons in all shapes and sizes of Ovals, Pear Drops or irregularly shaped with a facet or smooth cut, providing the beads or cabochons with a brilliant faceted sparkle or simple smooth opaque appearance.

Gemstones have a variety of hardness, on the Mohs scale between 1 to 8, a measurement of how hard or soft a crystal is. All crystals are unique gifts from our wonderful Mother Earth, and they are notable in their type, colour tones, textures and shape.

Today, there are hundreds of precious, semi-precious gemstones to choose from. Here you will discover a range of handmade crystal jewellery sold in our Jewellery Dreams shop featuring these beautiful crystals.

What is the difference between precious stones and semi-precious stones? These are the terms based on the old traditions from the West. These days, all gemstones/crystals are beautiful and considered precious, as they are mostly rare.

Precious stones or semi-precious stones: What are the differences between the two?

What stones are considered precious? Which are those considered semi-precious?

Gemstones are varieties of minerals, rocks, organic, cut, polished and then created into jewellery pieces. In the 1800s, these gemstones were divided into two sections – precious and semi-precious stones concerning their value difference at that time, but the limitations were not always correct – the quality, the rarity, and the birthplace were also considered.

Precious Gemstones:-

Only four traditional Precious gemstones are in demand – Diamonds, Rubies, Emeralds and Sapphires, You will see that a pearl, an opal or jade is listed as a precious gemstone, but often they are viewed as semi-precious. Traditionally these four precious stones have been the most valuable and sought-after gemstones, but many semi-precious stones are far better than the traditional four Crystals.

Semi-precious stones:-

The gemstones that do not belong to one of the big four are considered semi-precious. The semi-precious list is considerable, but some of the more common ones are –  Alexandrite,(very rare) Agates, Amethyst, Aquamarine, Garnet, Lapis Lazuli, Moonstone, Opal, Pearl, Peridot, Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz, Citrine, Spinel (rare), Tanzanite (very rare), Tourmaline, Turquoise and Zircon (Rare).

The division between precious and semi-precious has no scientific backing. For example, Emerald is a variety of Beryl, and so is Aquamarines. Emerald is a precious stone, while aquamarine is semi-precious. When this class came about, it was mainly due to the value and rarity differences between the precious gemstones, besides the rest. Today some semi-precious gemstones can be worth much more than precious stones because of their rarity. 

Spinels are another example. And many semi-precious stones can be much rarer than precious ones. Demantoid Garnets or Tsavorite Garnets, Tanzanite and many other semi-precious gemstones are now difficult to find, harder to mine and offered in lower quality than the precious gemstones.

When purchasing gemstone Jewellery, we do not recommend getting too caught up in whether the stone is precious versus semi-precious. All gemstones are unique and beautiful, providing meaning and value to you in a jewellery piece. The beautiful colours of the crystals are personal and emotional, and crystals have multiple healing properties.

After wearing crystal jewellery, cleaning them under cool running water is one way to cleanse them of all negative energy.

Here are several ways to cleanse your crystals- to clean the stones of any collected negative energy, you can do an energic cleansing and restore them every month to eliminate the negative energy sustaining the crystals to restore their vibrational frequencies and the crystal’s love a good Moon bath so after a Sunset place the crystals on a natural surface outside or place them near a window where it can bathe in the direct moonlight, at sunrise the early morning sun will recharge them and I use my sound bowl, making a sonic vibration that shakes off negative energy. This is one of my favourite ways to cleanse your crystal jewellery, especially before boosting the crystals with the vibrational healing power of Reiki before it’s sent to you.

Benefits of wearing Crystal Jewellery.

Crystals are said to have vibrations or “frequencies” at which they vibrate. The intended healing benefits of crystals boost areas of your mental well-being, including feelings of renewed calmness, positivity and focus, as well as the enhanced balance of the chakras and pain relief.

Individual crystals are also known to have unique energies that help align to assist with different areas of your life with their appearance plus colour, as well as their variety concerning their natural energies. As with everything in life, it’s all about balance, eliminating negative energy and helping your energy to be recharged.

Emotional moments are passed through your Birthstones, Anniversary Gems and Zodiac signs. They also make great gifts for all special occasions and particular events in your life.

The long-lasting crystals are one of Mother Nature’s natural creations. They need care if the gems are to keep their stunning good looks so please make sure you follow this simple advice. 

  • Remove your jewellery before engaging in any activities such as sports. Exposure to chemicals and heat such as household sprays hair sprays and perfumes.
  • Apply your jewellery after applying your lotions, cosmetics, hair spray or perfumes, Not before. 
  • When you are removing or putting on your jewellery, please do not pull it on as this will weaken and it could break.
  • Store your jewellery in a bag or a jewellery box. So that the harder stones don’t scratch softer ones and the jewellery stays scratch-free. 
  • Checking the Mohs hardness of the gems will give you an idea of the strength of each crystal.
  • Wipe your jewellery with a clean damp cloth and then polish them with a dry soft cloth. 
  • Avoid cleaning crystals with an ultrasonic cleaner. All Quartz, Rubies and Sapphires are usually fine.
  • Opaque Crystals such as Opals, Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise and Malachite can be porous. They will absorb chemicals and soap. Only wipe them with a clean moist cloth.
  • Do not use soapy water on Pearls or Opals it will spoil the lustre of the crystals
  • Keep Opals away from heat and strong sunlight as it can dry out the water within them. Skip cleansing them in an ultrasonic and with soap and water. If the opals look dull, leave them in plain natural mineral water for one hour to hydrate them.
  • Only wipe Pearls, Coral and Amber with a moist soft cloth, these gems are Organic, soft and porous. Avoid chemicals in hairspray, cosmetics, and perfume. Over time they can damage Pearl’s lustre.
