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.

[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.

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.
