Types of Gemstones

   Hello Gem lovers!

Have you ever wondered what type of gemstones we have in the world? Or why some gemstones are so expensive? I have the answers for you! 

Our planet has over 5,000 identified minerals and rocks and only about 200 of them are able to be shaped into gemstones. Gemstones are minerals or rocks tough enough to be cut and polished for jewelry making. Keep in mind Crystal Joys specializes in loose natural gemstones and gemstone jewelry. Wink.. wink!

Gemstones come in all shapes and sizes,  but some gemstones are rarer than others. The rarer the stone is the more it will continue to go up in value. 

Here is a list of some of the rarest stones from all around the world:


Opal (Australia)

Jade (China)

Emeralds (Columbia)

Rubys (Sri Lanka)

Tanzanite (Tanzania)

Ammolite  (North America)

Colored diamonds (Australia)

The number one rarest type of gemstone in the world is painite. Painite is a  borate mineral that is dark red in color. The first painite specimen was discovered in Myanmar by a British gemologist in 1951. The gemologist first thought that this painite gemstone was a ruby because painite crystals are partly reformed to a crust-like small pink crystal that looks a lot like a red ruby. After researching this one of a kind gem, he quickly realized that he misidentified it. 

Painite contains the chemical elements zirconium and boron, which do not normally associate with each other in nature and don't exist together in any other mineral. Indicating that this gemstone was definitely not a ruby. Painite was then recognized as a new mineral in 1957. 

 Fast forward to  2001 only three painite crystals existed. As of today, there have been many discoveries but out of the thousands found very few are able to be easily faceted making this gemstone very rare and expensive. This gemstone is valued today at a whopping  $60,000 per carat.

Other gemstones that are known for holding their value are Precious Gemstones. These gemstones are known for their durability, rarity, size, beauty, and color. These top four gemstones are the most valuable and desired gemstones in the world  Diamonds, Rubies, Sapphires, and Emeralds.

 It is truly amazing how many different types of gemstones there are in the world. If you are interested in learning more about these beautiful gemstones, keep in mind we have a wide selection of these gemstones and gemstone jewelry in-store or online at crystaljoys.com

I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor ODUNGA and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and later he gave me his WhatsApp number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. I and my husband reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.

Imagine becoming vastly wealthy overnight. Being a winner of a multi-million dollar lottery certainly will be a life-changing event for almost every single lottery winner. My name is Mavis Wanczyck from Chicopee, Massachusetts, the famous PowerBall lottery winner of $758 million (£591m) in 2017. I know many people would wonder how I had won the lottery. Would you believe me if I told you that I did it with spell casting? I met this famous spell caster known as Doctor Odunga and he was the one who did it for me. As shocking as it was to me my famous comment to the press was “ I’m going to go and hide in my bed.” Never did I believe that Doctor Odunga made me wealthy overnight. If you want to have your chance of winning and becoming very wealthy just like me, contact Doctor Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR WHATSAPP HIM at +2348167159012 and you will be lucky. Thanks for reading and hope to see you at the top

Many people have written articles about how they were helped but I am very grateful to this great man who brought my ex-husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Jennifer Sanchez. When I came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him helping with a cure for Herpes Virus and I have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most innermost feelings many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent of two boys for almost 6 years and though my ex-husband was not staying with me and the kids I still wish someday he will return to me. This doctor I encountered is known as Dr. Odunga helped me with my wishes and I am happy to write on this website that my ex-husband is back with me. I am very happy to share the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don’t know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but I always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single re-connection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex or facing an infertility problem, contact this great man at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com Or WhatsApp/Call +2348167159012 and share an awesome testimony too just as I did
