Polished Gemstones Of The World 18 Specimen Kit

POLISHED GEMSTONES OF THE WORLD

From Ancient times people have been fascinated by the appeal and value of brightly-colored stones. They have been used for ornaments, trade, medicine, religious symbols, and to signify wealth and power. The tombs of ancient rulers in Egypt, England, and China have yielded ornaments with carnelian. The biblical Aaron’s breastplate was said to have contained Jasper, Amethyst, and banded Agate.

Today, we enjoy a wider variety and greater quantity of gemstones due to the technology that has perfected the lapidary arts. This collection of polished gemstones is representative of the many stones which are found throughout the world. For example, the tiger eye is from Africa, the citrine and the amethyst from Brazil. The peridot and unakite are from the United States.

All the stones in this collection are genuine and have been “tumble” polished to bring out their natural beauty.

The back of the kit box has an informative description of each specimen.

Each specimen is about ½ inch in size and secured to the identification card to prevent loss.
