National Gemstones

Posted on

One of the lists that I have been looking for for a LONG time, is a complete list of National Gemstones. So I have researched (googled) as best I can and published my findings here.

The list is by no means complete, or even all that official (I have listed my sources, so make of that what you will). I will be looking for more information post-writing-this in the hopes of making it better and more accurate.

In the mean time, here is what I have discovered...
