Mine is diamond! Which is cool because it's like the king of all gemstones, but it's not cool because it's so expensive so I don't ever get birthstone jewelry. #firstworldproblems
It's more like "Name the Eidolon stones from Final Fantasy IX"
(Also, my stone is turquoise. My actual favourites, however, are amethyst, sapphire and garnet. But at least my own's not that bad. I hate pearls and diamonds.)
I really don't get it, well I do, people like valuable stuff, but yea. I wonder how many people would like the same things if the things that are extremely valuable now are cheap as rubish and vice versa. How society and people's minds work is a fascinating thing.
My Dad gave me a medium blue sapphire ring for my 16th birthday and a white sapphire one for my 21st. (Obviously, I'm September born). My nephew then gave me a dark blue one for my 30th birthday, and that's the one I love the most. The sparkling dark hue reminds me of a deep blue sky or the Caribbean Sea at sunset... Beautiful!
