    Inspired by this thread.

    Just a short explanation, I've taken an interest in gemology, minerals, rocks, etc. lately and I've recently started collecting a number of gemstones and have been studying the different types,
    where they come from, how they're formed, their healing properties, etc. I can name several just off the top of my head. Because of this, I wanted to make some sort of gemstone/mineral-centric thread, and thus, this happened.

    I'll begin with azurite.

    You've hit my obsession. I love this thread. I have rocks and gemstones everywhere. I'll be inspired to take some pictures now. Hard to say what my favourite is but I really like calcite and amethyst. Love all my collection though.

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one! It seems everyone I know couldn't care less about gems, minerals, etc.

    My favorite, by far, is malachite! I have at least three in my gemstone collection and I hope to get more before long. A close second and third would be white howlite and lapis lazuli. :)

    I love that show... can't stand Lapis though. She's just too... I dunno, 'emo' for my tastes. Ironically, lapises are one of my favorite gemstones IRL.
