Since the dawn of time, mankind has been infatuated with the treasures found deep in the earth. Whether blood-red rubies or sapphires that evoke the ocean depths, human history is ripe with stories–from shipwrecks to ancient kingdoms to tales of supernatural powers–that reveal an almost gravitational pull towards these colorful objects. In this technicolor modern age, where Industrialism has made purple cars and orange plastic commonplace, it is hard for us to imagine the excitement of gazing upon a dazzling green emerald over a backdrop of mostly monochromatic, earthen tones. Regardless, Nature is an artist without rival, and there are many today who still feel the pull towards the romance and excitement of these colorful treasures.

If you haven’t held an alexandrite and watched it change from bluish-green to raspberry red with your own eyes, you are most definitely missing out. Or how about a paraiba tourmaline? One of the rarest gemstones on earth, its mesmerizing neon blue is like holding the sparkling waters of the Caribbean in the palm of your hand.
