Gem stones come in many sizes, shapes and colors. Gem stone jewelry can take its shape from a variety of influences like lapis cubes, rose quartz triangles, tigereye stars or goldstone hearts. If you are looking for a beautiful mineral to use in your jewelry making, you should consider Fluorite. Fluorite comes in shades of purple, pale green, pale blue and almost clear. Fluorite gemstone beads can also be found in yellow and gold tones. You should be careful if you choose Fluorite for your jewelry making because its a very soft gemstone and is prone to scratching and fracturing.
