    I love the green richness of helenite, though I find it difficult to find places.  I think that it's simply elegant and beautiful. I love seeing it in a rose gold setting most of all!

    Mine has always been my birthstone...sapphire.  I think opals would be a close second.  And I love to wear pearls.  They don't feel as 'cold' to me.

    Hematite has long been my favourite gemstone. I love it's steel-grey luster, almost metallic looking. You can almost see silvery particles in it that make it shine. It's just so pretty. I also love blue sapphires. Any blue gemstones are just so rich in colour.

    I love all sapphires. It may be my obsession with the color blue, but I think the reason I love them so much is as a child I had a beautiful cross made of sapphires.  My father purchased it for me before he was deployed.  I remember wearing that cross to church every...

    I love emerald since it's my birthstone. I started to like it since my cousin bought me a ring with a large emerald on it. It made me really happy. :)

    Amethyst is the crystal I am connected most. Not only it's my birthstone but I believe that amethyst is "my" crystal. I believe that I have a very strong connection to amethyst. I can't explain though the connection is very strong

    My favorite is the opal, it's so beautiful when they're cut, and I like the way the light changes the white color to different colors.

    My favorite crystal is my hematite.    It is a grounding and healing stone.  It is also a protective crystal.  I wear it as a ring.

    I love labradorite and moonstone.

    Although I've studied mineralogy very extensively, and could answer this with any scientifically fascinating or unique mineral… it's just those two, I could get lost in their colors.
