About This Quiz

Gemstones have many names, which include but aren't limited to gems, jewels and precious stones. These rocks are usually mineral crystals that are cut and cleaned and used in many, many ways. Usually, they're used in jewelry such as pendants, rings and crowns. Other uses for these precious and semi-precious stones include astrology and astrological readings, to bring good fortune and for decoration. 

But there are so many of them, in so many different colors, that it can be difficult to know what you're looking at when it's right in front of you. That's why we're going to test your knowledge of them today. So, we're going to show you a whole bunch of them, and your job is to correctly match each stone with its name. And don't think that every red gemstone is a garnet or all clear ones are diamonds. Not every green stone is an emerald and not all pink ones are rose quartz. 

This quiz will definitely put your knowledge to the test, so much so that if you pass, we'll be really impressed. Are you ready to show us how many gemstones you can identify?
