A gemstone (also called a gem, fine gem, jewel, precious stone or semi-precious stone) is a piece of mineral crystal which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry or other adornments. However, certain rocks (such as lapis lazuli) or organic materials that are not minerals (such as amber or jet) are also used for jewelry and are therefore often considered to be gemstones as well. Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their luster or other physical properties that have aesthetic value. Rarity is another characteristic that lends value to a gems ...more

[close] Do you love rocks, minerals & crystals?! Let's read books w/gemstones featured in the title or plot. There are so many ways to organize this & so many possible books! So, how about we give each letter of the alphabet a go, then we can start over. I'll post a 'new' gemstone each ?month?, but you can read at your own pace. No pressure, no strict 'follow the leader,' you jump in where you want! I'm not including author names, because it would be nice to have an actual stone show up in our reading...but this is your challenge, too, so modify it however works for you. Nonfiction that focuses on a particular stone is fine, too.

[close] Welcome to Crystallia! If times were better, festivities would be held in honor for travelers who have come to their cities in need of rest or relaxation. But unfortunately, a terror has arisen. A mysterious group who call themselves Moon Raiders. They say they want to reform the world as Crystallians know it but the Council fear that what this group would bring destruction on them all. Of course, not everyone in Crystallia have heard about these men and women who terrorize their fellow people. But then there are also some who refuse to believe that a group like this even exists. The Crystallia world has been at peace for such a long time, so to hear that the Moon Raiders hurt and sometimes even kill their people is quite disturbing. Nonetheless, the Council is working tirelessly to make sure that whoever is with the Moon Raiders will be brought to justice. Some are even using their Talents, abilities which some Crystallians manifest over rare occasions, to track the group down. But before anyone can draw the line between friend and foe, one must learn the other species which occupy Crystallia. The choice is yours, help fight against the Moon Raiders, be a part of them, or stay on the sidelines.
