GOLD:


No precious metal is as legendary and beautiful as gold. Gold has been used as a monetary standard throughout the history of mankind, and ancient gold jewelry and ornaments dating back many centuries are still found throughout the world.
Gold is the most malleable and ductile metal, and is easy to work with. It never tarnishes, and is unaffected by most chemicals. However, it becomes discolored by chlorine, bleach, detergents, and certain hairsprays and cosmetics. Gold lacks resistance to pressure and easily bends. For this reason, all gold jewelry is alloyed with other metals to increase its toughness and durability.
Color Golden yellow, with various tinges (depending on impurities placed in the gold)
Hardness 2½ - 3
SG 15.5 - 19.3 (depending on purity)
RI --

Luster. Metallic
Gil 2000

Kunzite:
Is the pink to light purple gem.
Color Pink, light pink, and light purple
Hardness 6½ - 7
SG 3.1 - 3.2
RI 1.66 - 1.68
DR .015
Luster.Vitreous
Gil 175

Opal:
Is the most colorful of all gems. Its splendid play of color is unsurpassed, and fine examples can be more valuable than diamond. The play of color consists of iridescent color flashes that change with the angle at which the stone is viewed.
Color Colorless, white, yellow, orange, red, purple, blue, green, gray, brown, and black. These are some of the base colors of Opal.
Certain opals display different colors when viewed from different directions, or when the stone is turned, or when the light source is moved. This phenomenon, called play of color, gives a stone color flashes, or schillers of different colors which vary from stone to stone. The play of color in many Opals is truly exceptional and unsurpassed.
Hardness 5½ - 6½
SG 2.0 - 2.2
RI 1.37 -1.47
DR None
Luster.Vitreous, pearly, waxy, resinous

Platinum:
Is the most valued of precious metals; its value normally exceeds that of gold. It has a beautiful silver-white color, and does not tarnish (as does silver). It is unaffected by common household chemicals and, unlike gold, does not get damaged or discolored by chlorine, bleach, or detergents. It is tougher than all precious jewelry metals, but still must be alloyed with stronger metals to prevent it from bending. Natural platinum contains small amounts of the rare element iridium. In jewelry, iridium is alloyed with the platinum to increase its toughness and durability. Gold is often mixed with platinum, giving it a light yellow hue.
Color Tin white
Hardness 4 - 4½
SG 14 - 19 (pure platinum has an SG of 21.4)
RI --

Pyrope:
Is the most famous form of garnet. Its dark, blood-red color is distinct and attractive. Pyrope gemstones are often totally clean of inclusions. A rose-red to violet variety, known as rhodolite, is also a popular gem. Rhodolite is not a pure variety of pyrope, but a mixture of pyrope and almandine.

SG 9.6 - 12.0 (depending on purity)
RI --

Spessartine:
Is one of the lesser-known garnets, as it does not have any superior attributes over the other garnets (and it is rather uncommon). A purplish-red to violet garnet, known as grape garnet, is an intermediary between spessartine and almandine.

Color Brown, orange, pink, brownish-red
Hardness 7
