Do you own any gemstones (besides the ones that are on jewelry)?
Yes, part of the kids' rock and mineral collection. None are cut or of high quality.
I have a small collection of around 100-150 stones. Most are small(under a carat) with the largest being 14 carat.
I have a few that are uncut.
I have a very small uncut piece of emerald, got it from my 5th grade teachers massive collection of things kids could take at the end of the year. You would get 'good job' points throughout the year to be used as currency. That guy was super cool.
Yes, several. I have a beautiful collection of minerals. My collection doesn't quite include gemstones because they are natural and not cut (gemstone indicates it's cut and polished). Here's a short list: amethyst, Vanadinite, okenite, peridot, garnet...
Just in jewelry
I have geodes.
I have some topaz from our honeymoon. The plan was to have them put into a setting of some sort. Maybe for our 20th anniversary. This summer will be our 19th.
They're the baby blue color.
Like just loose gemstones? Yeah. Dozens.
Several sun stones and another that I can't remember the name of.
