Jewelry & Accessories: From natural materials to plastics
People have loved jewelry since the dawn of history. Scientists assume that they adorned themselves with decorative accessories around 100,000 years ago. At that time, necklaces made of shells, pearls, snail shells or the teeth of wild animals were the most common. The first stone that has been proven to become a piece of jewelry is amber. With the progress of mankind and the new processing possibilities that came with it, these natural materials were polished and supplemented with metal elements. Glass objects were added later, such as the well-known glass beads from Venice, which became an important commodity. In the recent past, modern plastic objects have found their way into the world of jewelry and accessories.

Jewelery & Decoration: How are gemstones formed?
Gemstones and minerals differ mainly in their composition and quality, because they can arise from different materials and admixtures. Furthermore, their individual history of origin ensures a distinction. Rocks can form in the following ways:
- Rock Formation by Earth Forces & Temperature
- Igneous rocks or solidified rocks: Hot magma cools down either on the earth's surface or in the earth's interior and crystallizes out. For example: andesite.
- Metamorphic rocks: The starting materials are transformed under high pressure or high temperatures. For example: quartzite.
- Sedimentary rocks: Formed by deposition, water evaporation, leaching of soluble substances or weathering. For example: Tillit.
Accessories with minerals: crystal structure and mineralization
The minerals for the dreamy accessories are found in many places on earth and usually have a crystalline structure. They are transformed into precious stones, for example by melting during volcanic eruptions or by the mineralization of organisms such as shells (biomineralization). The different ways in which they are formed and the starting materials also give the minerals their different appearance, which can vary in transparency and colour, for example. Particularly hard, rare and transparent minerals form the most coveted gemstones. For example: diamonds.
- Organic stones: created by the forces of nature
- Stones used in stone science can also be made from organic materials, including resins. For example: amber.
- So-called glasses are formed by the melting of organic materials such as cooled lava. For example: obsidian.
Cut shape: gemstone or precious stone?
Cut natural stones have been used in jewelery for centuries. In return, they are given a finish that emphasizes the play of light and color or gives them a special shape. Refurbished in this way, they then adorn rings, necklaces, amulets, bracelets or crowns, for example. But the appealing objects can also be used as living room accessories and decorative gems. Some decorative "gemstones" are more common in nature or have other properties that exclude them from the category of real gemstones. Nevertheless, they have an attractive appearance and are used in their organic or a polished form. They are referred to as semi-precious or semi-precious stones.
What are Gem Varieties?
Some gemstones can have different colorations based on their origin history and their specific composition. In this way, almost identical materials can look different and be different versions of the same parent rock. For example, the mineral corundum is the starting material for both red rubies and blue sapphires. The individuality of the composition is the basis for the variety of colors and their own names that distinguish them from each other.
3 things that tell you a gem
You can distinguish the gemstones from normal gemstones in that they are very rare to find in nature. Furthermore, they are particularly hard and achieve at least a value of seven on the measuring scale for gemstone hardness (Mohs hardness scale). That means you could carve a regular window glass with the gem. Stones that have a high level of transparency and purity are also particularly popular - i.e. light can penetrate them and thus show an appealing play of color and light.
- Gemstones are rare in nature
- Precious stones are characterized by their hardness
- Pure gems are transparent

Healing stones: Traditional & modern esotericism
The term healing stone may not be used in advertising in Germany. The term includes various jewelry and gemstones, minerals as well as fossil organic and inorganic materials that are used in esotericism, chakra teaching and lithotherapy (gemstone therapy). The assumed effect and areas of application of the so-called healing stones result from popular belief and old writings by scholars and physicians of the past, including Hildegard von Bingen, for example.
Lack of scientific evidence for healing stone effects
Although the term healing or health stone is mainly found in traditional records and has become established in common usage, the use of the word is not legally permissible. The reason for this lies in the lack of scientific evidence or studies on the effectiveness of gemstones and on the areas of application, which originate exclusively from the traditions. The district court of Hamburg has therefore decided in a judgment that it is unfair competition that misleads customers when jewelry or precious stones are referred to as healing stones.
- Healing Stone or Health Stones not allowed
- Lack of scientific evidence
