Tourmalines are cool, too. I have a ring that has a pink tourmaline stone in it, and I just love it!
Sapphires are my birthstone, too, and I do love them - they're just not my favorite.
When my Mom was here visiting last year, she had a ring that had a stone called a platinum topaz: it was sooo cool!
I've tried to find one, but haven't had any success. I guess they're extremely rare..
I also love the black opals & fire opals (heck, ANY opal, for that matter!)
I had the neatest pair of opal earrings once, but lost one of them, What a bummer..
I also love abalone jewelry - even though I realize abalone isn't a gemstone. Some of the moonstones are really cool, too - especially the multi-colored ones.
There aren't very many gems that I don't
I am purposely avoiding the jewelry channel now that we have cable, b/c I know I'll just go nuts!
